4 stars Three albums out into their career and The Future Kings of England yet again create something new - or rather old - in their carefully selected musical territory.

Yet again elements from folk music are blended with low-key, searching psychedelic guitar patterns, while organ and mellotron (or their replicated sounds from synths) serves up delightful, rich, warm textures in the back of the soundscape. Careful rhythms and wandering bass lines are added in, and with a few additional touces from synths and samples we're served 6 variations of these musical elements, produced and mixed in a distinctly 70's sounding lo-fi manner.

From the careful, brief mood pieces to shifting, majestic epics, this album goes from strength to strength, even touching upon a few moments of pure brilliance in the shape of The Cold Hard Truth and Time Flies Like An Arrow. If instrumental, psychedelic space rock with an early 70's sound is of interest, The Viewing Point is an album you should buy. Excellent album yet again from this band.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
