4 stars Not only psychedelic rock but eclectically mixed kaleidoscopic launcher, with jazz, funk, blues ...

LENINGRAD BLUES MACHINE have got advanced continuously methinks. I've heard they might have got started as a "pseudo" psychedelic jam band simply according to gigs in their early time, but in 2002 they could confirm the members and attitude for psychedelic progressive rock strictly I suppose. This album "Yajé" was their first full-studio-recorded one, that could alter the studio into the psychedelic progressive heaven. No need for us to say such difficult phrases, but alright only to listen to and enjoy this brilliant heavenly creation.

Anyway, whatever I say, please drop the CD player lens onto the disc. They open their musically versatile art curtain completely from the beginning ... wow, that's it! Our ears can touch directly their complexity and progressiveness around sounds and noises created with their talent of jazzy, funky, bluesy psychedelia. The rhythm section can be surely immersed into jazz rock / fusion, and Tabata's guitar solo can be whacked out deeply in his hallucinated mind. Though their voices are more freaked as if they should absorb themselves into mind-expanding substances, their play can be totally exploitable out. They, in this album, are hoppin', steppin', and jumpin' by making full use of instruments and ... yeah tremblin' air ... all around the heaven.

Here's a great stuff, that cannot be mentioned only with psychedelic rock manner. Recommended.
