4 stars This nearly 24 minutes long improvisation introduces Cary's band's strong jam potential, which in her studio releases usually is blended with predefined song elements (a single-malt improv?). In the beginning bass guitar creates a logical rhythmic and melodic starting point for the reactive and creative musical interaction. The jam follows the stylistic line of the "Perpetual Motion" album, having dominant cosmic vintage synths and strong electric solo guitar presence, resembling slightly the sound texture of 1990's Hawkwind releases if searching a comparison. Short pauses in rhythm create open calmer sections for the group to search a direction, and it's fun to listen how the performers support each other and offer musical elements for mutual evaluation, and then continuing the voyage with agreed themes within the groovy causeway towards the next galaxy. This EP supports well her previous album where the free playing has also a very strong role, there though implemented to a compositional context. This EP would probably please also any prog fan interested of improvised playing, in addition of those already knowing Cary's earlier records.
