4 stars They are named after an Indian guru and this tells us much about their spiritually flavoured music. Yes, this is way more than let's say simple Asian influenced hippie music celebrated around a campfire. 'Return Into Earth' is one extended song, maybe you can also claim jam. They provide a special vibe which is skilled, hard to describe - please listen on your own to get the appropriate impression. I assume this is recorded during one session and, if ever, only slightly reworked. A varied instrumentation including tribal percussion are the fundament for this meditative trip.

Echoing flute and banjo, acoustic guitar, decent backing keyboard patterns and pleasant drones, this all takes you away on a hallucinatory journey. Well - somewhere, gliding through the second half, just when you're probably running into danger to be lulled, it all surprisingly turns into another direction. They lose the laid back behaviour, fade into a heavy outraged excursion, switch into some weirdness headed by fuzzy guitars.

'Return Into Earth' represents excellent raga inspired psych prog music- this partially reminds me of diverse German krautrock outfits. An entertainig piece of work which is simply recommended - check this out!
