4 stars Supposedly based on the Egyptian 'Book of the Dead' Brainticket have abandoned the style of their previous 2 albums and they come up with this little cracker from 1973. Weird psychedelics are at the forefront, with a fair helping of electronic experimentation.

Carol Muiriel who looks like she just combed her hair with an egg-whisk still sounds completely stoned during her plentiful vocals but she somehow still manages to play some Zither too.

A bit of a crazy album that's full of flutes, synthesisers, bass and incomprehensible lyrics where all the tunes merge in to one another.

'To Another Universe' has what sounds like someone frantically rubbing a balloon in time to the music. The departure of the guitarist certainly seems to have made a big difference to the Brainticket sound. This is a more experimental than 'Psychonaut' from the previous year and is far more enjoyable.

Don't buy the 'Purple Pyramid' version. A pressing fault means you have to start on track two as the first tune is repeated!

Can you believe that... In this day and age!
