5 stars As their debut album already proved, Kingston Wall was at their best in long songs full of jamming. And their second album is full of those. The exceptionally good guitar- (Petri Walli) and drumwork (Sami Kuoppamäki) are the reasons why this album takes you to the higher grounds.

The album starts with the wonderful hard-rocking rush of "We Cannot Move" and continues to beautiful instrumental sweep of "Istwan", both songs full of eastern influences. "Shine on Me" later on the album is arguably Kingston Wall's definite masterpiece. It's a haunting song where Walli's guitar-playing and singing is backed magnificently with saxophone. The 10-minute epic, "You", is almost as good. Worth a mention is also the Donna Summer(!) -cover "I Feel Love", a disco-hit turned into psychedelic, hypnotizing progressive rock.

A truly wonderful album and strongly recommended for the lovers of guitar-based psychedelic rock.
