4 stars Great freak-out jamming output from the Japanese trio GREEN MILK FROM THE PLANET ORANGE, partially build up with a heavy, sometimes even noisy punk attitude on 'City Calls Revolution'. Four songs with an approximate length of 70 minutes - this is pointing to at least one extended epic. And there are even two I would say - starting with Concrete City Breakdown initiated by a mellow spacey bass/synthesizer collaboration. The band, featuring new bassist T, let you listen to music made up with creativity and structure in opposite to aimless noodling.

And then all machines are immediately running on maximum speed to take you on a freaky ride - tons of acid, echoing and fusionesque guitar work furthermore, a hypnotic bass, furious drums and wild high-pitch vocals somewhere between screaming and singing. Taking a breath here and there this is coming near to the trickiness of 'The Mars Volta' or 'Sonic Youth' - excellent! OMGS now is adopting an attitude of punk and garage blending impressions where Demagog comes less tricky but shines with joy of playing though. This is a fine heavy psych jam at least showing their excellent instrumental interaction.

The 38 minute running suite A Day In The Planet Orange is consisting of a blues inspired jam half way through proving Dead K's complete guitar skills. This is gliding then into a spacey part coupled with mysterious Japanese vocals and samples until the band falls into a weird crushing and puzzling attitude once more. This track is a rollercoaster ride by all means (especially if you really take the time to listen completely).

GREEN MILK FROM THE PLANET ORANGE are offering a creative and powerful performance with this album and it might also give you a clue how impressing their live gigs must have evolved (don't know if they are still active yet). 'City Calls Revolution' is well done - suitable in any case if you're new to this band.
