This is typical, trippy material that you'd expect from a collaboration with Nik Tuner. The band isn't going to bowl you over with virtuoso musicianship or strange time signatures or the like. That's not their intent nor their purpose. If you are a Nik Turner fan, you'll recognize many of the tracks on this disc from his last few live albums. This album is an extension of the Egyptian mythology themes explored in his first solo album, though more laid back and drawn out. It's more of a Nik Turner influenced effort than anything else. Subsequent releases did not involve Nik and it is easy to see why they aren't anywhere close to the coolness of this particular release.

The music is an amalgamation of techno, electronica, middle eastern themes, and psychedelia. None of this is earth shattering or genre defining. It's simply light and trippy, something that requires little thought from the listener and yet it lets your mind wander of its own accord. Something about this album drags me in again and again. It's been one my faves since the day I bought it. There are times when an album is more than the sum of its parts like when the concept works and doesn't try to be more than what it is.
