4 stars You can't expect to write better review on Indonesian album than our good (not old) Gatot. Therefore, I'll try to do more decent, but more "my own" job (not to copy his thoughts as some may think I'll do).

To be dishonest (pun intended), this music reminds me The Flower Kings a lot. It's not so space psycho rock to me so much, as Symphonic with Space elements. There beautiful guitar solo (and melodic too) in second half of 1st Movement and I remember myself listening this part over and over again (rewinding). From about 5:45- and one can't wonder, because it's so magical and charming part. It's easy to produce noise, little bit harder to make clever noise, but to build working Symphony, it's masterpiece. After this segment, we're getting again to these "sounds", this Space element. They're not bad, it's like sobering up, landing from the clouds where we raised our heads. Also, try to turn your bass equalizer part sky-high and listen to wonderful bassy work. There are certainly skills hidden in him (or open to everyone?).

When I see line-ups of Indonesian bands, I think about one thing. They could win some award for The most colorful names in the world. Not funny, not ugly sounding/looking, just interesting. Weird.

All through the rest of album, these two sides are constantly switching, dancing wild tango in total for about 73 minutes. Great new for everyone who liked it so far. Packing new elements into itself, new patterns and structures are hoping aboard of this long distance ship. Because there's story behind this album. I don't want anybody to destroy my good times guessing it (another reason why I haven't read previous reviews), because from track titles, it's interesting. Trying to guess it is little bit harder, because of lack of singing (mostly "instrumental"). But that's fine, I like it this way.

5(-), masterpiece without a bigger flaw. Sometimes these "psychedelic" elements (repetition of the same sounds) can be weary, but it's not problem (mostly towards the end of album)
