3 stars A very rare but strong 'Canterbury' release from Germany. Very pleasant, inspired and technical, Zyma cultivates the musical schema developed by Soft Machine and others but stresses the funniest and most optimistic emotional dialogue of it, thanks to very enthusiastic melodies and catchy improvisations. The opening track illustrates it perfectly. Mostly a jazzy rock composition punctuated by female voices and fantasist interludes. "One way street" is one of my favourite tracks, a kind of abstract prog-psych jazz with a very long, very strange hippie-like introduction. The rest of the tune represents a positive jazz rock excursion with some discreet folk accents due to the pastoral, dancing flute lines. Certainly not a personal favourite but quite interesting and recommended for those who like relaxing hippie-rock jams.
