3 stars This album covers a large range of "droning" vibrations, "sweet" acoustic folk compositions and a "buddy" aggressive garage rock...everything played in a rather "neo hippie / semi punk" mood. The album starts with a gorgeous "mystical", repetitive sitar pattern. "Use use use" is a "grotesque", "drunken" rock 'n roll piece. Some songs have a nice, funny "country" folk flavour ("Banjo hymn", "Old Palm Tree"...). A complex band with a lot of capacities, expressing with no restriction pure nervous, noisy rock attacks and sudden "rural" folk ballads. On this last, new effort my favourite tunes are the floating and meditative "Claremont raga" and the "disarticulated", plaintive "noisy" folk rock «Memorial Immemorial". Time to time the advantage of the diversity can be translated to an inconvenient. In fact it's difficult to be attracted by all the musical segments offered by the band...sometimes it's impossible to see the relationship between the different musical sources of inspiration. It creates something strangely controversial.
