3 stars This album is quite an octopus! Metaphysical, cosmological, lyrics branded with Lovecraft's occultism, space rock combined to epic prog and silvered with metal, an international line up with musicians from Russia, Italy, USA, UK (Cyndee Lee Rule on space violin) and Denmark, bits of stardust with members of Hawkwind (Davey, Turner) and so on! The list of performers is long and somehow the resulting collective work gives you an impression of overload. Add that the production also tends at times to the same, with too many things at once, tons of delays, echoes, whirlwinds of this and that, etc... You think it's the end? Well it isn't! Add again on top of all the previous long and unending jam-packed improvs! It's somehow a shame because there are good things out there, moments drowned in and struggled by the cosmic plasma; nuances, the balance of instruments in the ... huum can't avoid it .... SPACE!!, all this disappear in favour of the quantity of food cast at you ONCE with one huuuuuge tentacular spoon ... eat, eat, eat more and now eat! There's plenty of acid nutritionals .... enough to hollow your brain! When THIS happens, you may only have reached half of the record!!!! I give three stars but it would be more 2 if this option was there!
