4 stars The style of the 60's can be heard pleasantly in the music of this album, as there are some blues influences and raw organ sounds on it. I'm not a big fan of blues, but I think that blues elements in music can be wonderful, as they are blended with some other musical elements, just like CREAM did for example. And psychedelia is a classic counterpart with blues, like a black pepper is to a dragon in cuisine! The album covers are great, and they describe the atmosphere on the album perfectly. The long epic track is interesting, but I liked the shorter tracks too. I think this music could slightly be compared to the album by AARDVARK and early PINK FLOYD works. ARZACHEL is just maybe a more organ driven band, and there are bit more aggressive and blues rock driven elements in it. Surreal and nice, highly recommended!
