Michael Furniere, a multi-instrumentalist of SRI AUROBINDO, said to me in Japanese "Heiwa (Peace)". Yes, SRI AUROBINDO play that improvised and peaceful (heiwa-full?) psychedelia with their terrific skill and imagination for progressive rock.

Filled with their laidback flight and their improvised but well-cooperated play, this great huge sound-story named Return Into Earth goes forward like a flying eagle called SRI AUROBINDO. This story gets started with quiet percussion (Cymbal and Gong hits) and dry, surrealistic flute solo. As if a maiden or a nymph dances and gradually flies into the heaven... Exactly the percussion ensemble (double drum & percussionists are here!) with exotic (especially Oriental) mood in their inner space do have such an atmosphere, everyone can feel - it's right indeed, but I also feel that keen flute's and stumbling guitar's sounds are fascinatingly or magically comfortable. Of course trust me the bassist play strictly just as the pacesetter all of them...without steady rhythm section this spacey sound-story cannot burst in such a way. From the middle to the latter parts twin guitars keep growling loudly and construct complete psychedelic clouds in the sky where the "eagle" flies. And the guitars complete feeling the cool air, the eagle slowly tries to go down into the ground...calmly and solemnly.

Over 32 minute sound-story cannot be long and boring at all - let me call this absolutely Oriental Ambient-ish Space Rock with magnificence and magical toxin.

Peace - heiwa. :-)
