Prog Reviewer
5 stars Lucifer Rising is a soundtrack album for a movie with the same name. I'm not going to go into detail about Bobby BeauSoleil being a convicted murderer associated with the Manson family back in the late '60s because this album is great. This album is very psychedelic, trippy progressive electronic with very strong krautrock leanings. This honestly is one of the best electronic albums I own, and it's a bummer more music isn't available from this nut.

So many different atmospheres are present on this album. It's occasionally beautiful, sometimes it's fast paced and frantic, sometimes dark drones take over, but the psychedelic feel is always in the mix. Fuzzy and dreary sounding electric blues guitar playing is a huge standout on the last track and adds great dramatic, traumatic beauty to the album as a whole.

If you can get find this album, get it. It's fantastic. Maybe you'd feel bad about buying an album of music created by a murderer. So? A masterpiece is a masterpiece whether you like it or not.
