2 stars Very simple Greek psychedelia constructed only by two guitars, one bass, and drums - TA 4 ΕΠΙΠΕΔΑ ΤΗΣ ΥΠΑΡΞΗΣ (The 4 Levels Of Existence).

With due deliberation on the background and history of Greek rock (progressive or not), their rockin' soul might override the seven years when the civil administration was brutally suppressed by The Regime of the Colonels, I suggest. Maybe as for current opinions of many progressive rock freaks, their play and style is not really progressive, nor so psychedelic. However, let me emphasize that their flexible shouts for "freedom" with attitude against such a suppression should be progressive at that moment in Greece, alright? Indeed their skill of playing is not so good - their vocals are slightly out of tune (sorry) and Chiristos' drumming is slightly unsettled (sorry again) - but this less skilled flavour in them should be comfortable and familiar for me without any suspicion. The adverse circumstances in their nation should get to be their sensitivity and dynamism I consider. I'm so glad you can listen to this whole album with such due deliberation.

All the songs on this album are very simple, without any special instrument. Two guitars and a rhythm section - that's all - shoot simple, light, thin sounds, that can make psychedelia on a huge scale. Just like non-heavy, non-matured, and non-smokey-flavoured whisky...but they might be so great just upon the political change in Greece to produce such an interesting and amazing stuff.

Cannot recommend The 4 Levels Of Existence to all Psychedelic Progressive / Space Rock fans (so gave only two stars to it), but only to freaks immersed into oldie psychedelic rock and the historical background of rock music in Greece.

Personally this album is absolutely one of my favourites, anyhow.
