5 stars Hypnos 69 is a band I am always looking after since I discovered them a few years ago, a mixture of stoner, space, psychedelic, and always wonderful and well thought and performed rock. Legacy is their last effort until the moment and it's one of the best thing I've heard on 2010.

The Houtmeyers are back in marvellous form. The sound is 70's at 100%, and this is an continuation of their previous The Eclectic Measure, but somehow I found Legacy more consistent, more powerful, more delicate and more...dreamy.

Each and every track blows me away. They had everything an epic recording needs to be considered so, with so many instrumental passages with catchy riffs, astounding guitars, heavy riffing, touching soloing, dreamy arpeggios, waves and waves of vintage keyboards sounds (lots of mellotron and hammond all around), intrincate and complex forms that fit and flow together so blissfully, dynamic and creative rhythm section. There's even flutes in many places, maybe clarinets, I couldn't say. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Wow, this has the production I really love, raw, fresh, live, so real, so crunchy. Dark and melancholy moods are so well crafted with the more crystaline and quiet passages I'm trembling to the bones. Ah, the voices, these guys even sing in perfect balance and harmony to every piece of sound in the record. For me, this deserves five bright stars!

What are you reading??? Just go and listen to it!!!!
