5 stars Eclectic? Yes, Vibrant? Yes, Mainstream? No. There are more musical ideas and styles on here than some bands manage in their whole career. A dizzying ride through elements of Canterbury scene, Krautrock, Psych and garage, jazz and rock. A mixture which may leave some listeners confused and disoriented. That's a good thing. These are top musicians doing whatever the hell they like and enjoying themselves, even drum solo's are allowed. Great musicianship all round and exciting compositions. I am not going to give a breakdown of each track, others have already done that here. Highlights for me are October Sad Song with its excellent guitar work and Eloy-like keys. Pilgrims impresses as does Moron Season with its great power break in the middle. Jussi Pussi is Zappa style bonkers, which is no bad thing and the excellent Iron Pillows also has Zappa like echoes in the arrangement and guitar. My personal favourite, Cinema, sounds like the soundtrack for a futuristic spaghetti western set on Mars. There is a lot of music here to take in. Do yourself a favour and step out of the mainstream for a while, take your time to digest it and enjoy these excellent musicians enjoying themselves.
