5 stars Electric Silence is entirely captivating and experimental ethnic jazz krautrock improvisations. I've been listening to this album over and over for years now, and I couldn't think of a proper way to review this album, so I'm just going to dive in.

The music is very full, but very calm, and somehow energetic - it's really hard to explain. Even the playing is wonderful, and strong, and somehow subdued. Regardless, it's beautiful. All 6 tracks flow smoothly as a whole, taking the listener on a krauty-jazzy-ethnic ride into uncharted musical territory. I wish I could compare this album to something, but Electric Silence only really sounds like itself, or maybe its predecessor album (though that doesn't really help much). For this release, Dzyan takes influences from everywhere in the '70s and crafts it all into a barely comprehensible masterpiece of third-eye-opening jam trip. Besides the music being great, I know that I want the album art as a tattoo on my face. I have no idea what the album art is supposed to be, but it matches the music perfectly and is a great piece of weirdo art all by itself.

This, whatever it is, is highly recommended.
