1 stars This was an incredibly dissapointing album and one stars is almost generous. If your looking for a long rambling incoherant mess this is the place to come. It occasionally does good things but these are seldom and just draw attention to how tiresome the rest of it is.

Also aome of the instruments they use sound rather bad. The greatest example of this is the nasty keyboard noise which pierces your ears then starts grating with abandon. I am sure this same sound was used on Caravan's Nine Feet Underground which this whole album is reminiscent of. Both are over long and rambling. Nine Feet Underground manages to destroy the rest of the album which is great this has nothing to destroy other than itself as its all bad.

So in conclusion. Awful, such a bad album i am tempted to give it away. Actually a chore to listen to. 1 star.

Psychedelia | 1/5 |
