3 stars Met more energetic, more drone desert rock, with unsuitable artificial noises.

Suppose "Mind Trip In A Minor" might be another place where "The Traveler" has got on. Their play, just like squeezing heavy sandstorm out, is heavier, deeper and tighter than on the previous creation indeed, and especially Chris (Walker) plays the guitar more simply, more sensitively, and more directly, in fourth / fifth tracks "In The Desert / A Face In The Sand" ... sounds like the masterpiece in this album for me, very challenging. Basically dry and hot sunbeam sounds are in the same vein of "The Traveler", but quite simple riffs have got more of drone and more of slime like delicious death agony. Although enough "Neues" cannot be heard anymore, their strong policy / guideline for "Desert Rock" should be maintained I imagine. Upon this point their instrumental section can be terrific. On the other hand, let me say that I wonder the reason they'd processed their voices with an effector. Their voices may be far from good, but unpolished, smokey voices could have been one of their mysterious addictions of sound, right? Yes, whether fine or poor, their vocal can be one of their characteristics on playing. Artificially effector-based voices can be only vexing noises for me, that might kick their original fantasy away sadly.

For us progressive rock freaks, what does the word "progressive" mean? A pleasure to find something new I consider. We will find something newer upon their works in future ... hope so.
