4 stars Consisting of a multinational compound of members hailing from Germany, France, UK and Afghanistan ONE SWITCH TO COLLISION play an interesting blend of space, kraut and garage/stoner rock which I've never heard before in this way. Took enough time to take this in ... and want to weight this album a big hit in the meanwhile even though this is not 100% prog all the way through. They spent some time in Paris and there is some friendship/relationship with a special French band. You can smell it here and there ... although Turzi are closer to the electronic krautrock fields in the end. ONE SWITCH TO COLLISION are more of a classic guitar rock band, however they provide an impressing variation of styles as mentioned before.

Smokes immediately gives you the right impression ... starting cosmic with synths and spacey guitar but then changing to a typical krautrock behaviour and later reaching for a rather straightforward garage drive - however this is decorated with swirling synths and fuzzy guitars in between. And when someone may think such a mixture must sound weird and crude over the course - NO! This is well structured, you even won't miss melody and atmosphere. Every song has its own character and charm. Clostrophobia and Four Four are longing back to 60's flower pop psych where Bist du korrekt? fades to an intriguing space rock trance easily following PF's Ummagumma live spirit, wonderful ... and then suddenly it all changes to a Can respecively NEU! drive decorated with sawing guitars on top of it.

Now this may give an impression about the experimental approach and the extended Psychotic Sunday finally can claim the crown for some reasons. Hallucinogenic or psychotic ... probably sharing the dangerous balancing act when using some sort of drugs. This song is a fascinating trancy excursion ... so all in all here we have an entertaining, partially even obscure album which deserves four stars.
