4 stars Here we have a Japanese female band with impressing dual guitar work - just a pleasant surprise! 'IV' is a great album - however it needs some rounds to establish the brilliance. ANGEL'IN HEAVY SYRUP are standing for a psychedelic style which combines compositional attempt and jamming in a rather sophisticated way. Although I have a huge backlist for psych/space reviews this forced me to favour the album.

First I couldn't make friends with the vocals but in the meantime I'm really convinced. After all they fit - it belongs to their unique outfit. Stylistically this is quite varied. You will find some more hippie trippy oriented songs like the starting First Love or the cosmic Space Conquest where Adios in those days is a more heavily tempered one. The extended Fate units several elements represented on the album finally - possibly concipated as the ultimate essence.

It's worth it to concentrate on Mine Nakao's and Fusao Toda's guitar work. And this applies to the wonderful Voyage in a special way. This is not only an outstanding exemplar of mellow space rock. The second part also shows a twin guitar sound in the vein of jamming southern rock bands such as The Allman Brothers Band. Now this leads to one short conclusion in the end: recommended!
