2 stars This album leaps deeper to the stoned abyss of mathematical rhythms and acid guitar driven power, and also gives strong associations of the Acid Mothers Temple recordings. The graphic and song titles referring to psychedelic, progressive and classic rock songs are treated with very hardcore musical solutions. "Let's Go to San Francisco" announced by Ms. Dokuzović dives directly to formless planes of chaotic fuzzed guitar solos. The monotonic body of this opener is circled by groovy violent themes. The longer tracks open after this warm- up, "Hell from Jazz" builds from radiophonic noises, heavy guitar killing and primitive beating. The epic featureless space of sounds floats in the spheres for abstract seventeen minutes. Next ten minutes lasting "Emmigrant Song" starts with distant chant and call of guitar, and the composition focuses to a guitar riff sounding slightly the associated Zeppelin song's intro theme. The minimalist track has interesting developments in the end, as the pace decreases down really slowly. Math rock oriented runs introduce the first quite clear appearing song on the record, titled "Easy Drugs & Hard Women". Calmer feelings emerge from bass guitar running upon the scenery, guitar calmly counting the notes and cosmic sounds bubbling pleasantly behind. Power grows calmly, guitar solos grows with strength and reaches finally celestial heights, making this my favorite track on this confusing album. The record closes to "Noi Noi", which is a large wave rolling as one repetitive note, and there is nearly no evolvement in this fantastically autistic song. I would consider this album really heavy and intensive in its monotonic qualities, and recommend it to hardcore psychonauts only.
