4 stars Good lord this music will make you scramble for some thorazine! Full of swirling, shifting guitar and keyboard dominated instrumental psychedelic space rock, it probably bears most resemblance to Ash Ra Tempel's first album. This is a purely drugged landscape that travels through your head and leaves you in the next universe. This is not actually composed at all, but this swirling jam actually has become a large influence (at least to my ears) on some of very interesting post-rock bands such as abunai, cul de sac, kinski, and maybe acid mothers temple. Loaded with lots of effects and heady improvisations, and much to the disgust of some of the musicians involved in the session, has become a krautrock classic. prepare for an out of body experience!
