4 stars 3.75: The second album by the Japanese band Acid Mother temple. This is the third album I heard, and I really appreciated that they constantly change the style of music in this album, it began with a very good jamming of classic krautrock style then an acoustic song is presented and it keeps you entertained, after that a nice prog ballad is shown, then a slow blues is shown in combination with the most acid/kraut rock style, something that I didn't hear before. After that a kind of folk song combined with space rock sounds, after that Astrological Overdrive, a classic space rock song, this one using vocals. After that the following songs continue with that formula of changing and mixing jamming, folk, blues music and space rock with ok results, however not with the same quality, mainly because they began to play their characteristic jamming without any real direction, that at some times it sound really good but mostly in others seems exaggerated. I considered it a really good album, mainly the first part, and Im very surprised because the other two album that I heard was mainly jammings without any elaborated direction, but in this one at least you have a really good changes in times, styles and music, This one is the first one that i can considered progressive. A really good album, not an essential,but it has a really good moments, and if you want to get into this band I considered this one a good choice.
