4 stars Andromelos' debut album is a collaborative electro-krautrock effort from members of Acid Mothers Temple, Masonna, and Ghost. I'm familiar with both Ghost and Masonna, and I'm quite a fan, although Acid Mothers Temple has always left me cold. It seemed appropriate for me to get this album, and I'm certainly glad I did. This self-titled debut album is psychedlic electronic krautrock and consists of two lengthy tracks.

Something that really sticks out on this album is the obvious influence that each members' other bands have on the sound. Masonna's extreme noisy tendencies, Ghost's moody and imperialistic-like groove, and Acid Mothers Temple's easily identifiable psychedelic guitar jamming.

This album sounds very much like the cover would suggest: spacey and psychedelic. The two lengthy jams on this album that make up the conceptual piece "Tea Breaks Are Under Attack From 2300000 Light Years" are enjoyable, with their spacey atmosphere with strange experimental electronic manipulations and extraterrestrial noises coupled with trippy attitude, but it isn't really anything new. This is undoubtedly new for the members involved with this project, but this album comes off sounding like a really good Can and Amon Duul II collaboration. Since this isn't groundbreaking, but does sound like previously groundbreaking bands, my overall impression on this album is very good. I've never been one to "trip", but this album does serve as great motivation for that cause.

Highly recommended for fans of trippy, psychedelic, electronic krautrock from Japan. Totally, peace, man.
