3 stars You're right adigitaldan, it wasn't easy to find at all! Yet i found it online at a decent price (13 ? if i'm not mistaking). I've heard the first CD of Kingston Wall and this one is better. It's less "hard" i gues, and if it's still a bit to hard, the moods often change during the album. First goes hard, second goes spacy, third speeds up again, fourth goes very slow again (cf. adi's gilmour comment), etc ...

They have a nice sound. Maybe it's unique, but isn't all sound unique? The indian influence is obvious. I don't really have the idea to hear the led zeppelin / hendrix influence. Maybe people are just saying that cause they covered a hendrix song on their debut album (fire), or because petri uses a lot of guitar at times.

I might aswell say they got a lot of pink floyd influence, cuz of the spacy sounds they use at times. Specially the Shine on me track starts ringing a bell, which also happens to have a bit of sax in it.

A downside for me is that it's a bit to long... over an hour is just a bit to long for me!
