2 stars This is a rather unconventional record, but hardly essential. LOOSE (35007 in reverse and upside down) play heavy Psychedelic/ Space Rock with noticeable nods to HAWKWIND, GONG and Krautrock bands. Sometimes sounding as NIRVANA on acid, “Especially for you” will satisfy mostly genre’s fans – it’s too uneven and raw record for everyone to enjoy, though this specific atmosphere can serve as an additional “pro” for noise-rock freaks.

2 stars The Dutch space rock's debut album is the only thing I heard from them and I am unable to tell you whether the later albums are close to this one. Here the sextet has taken to a metallic sort of space rock, somewhere stuck between Hawkwind's binarity once in full flight, Ozric Tentacles' full flight delire and some progmetal band's crunchy uncompromising riffy guitars with a semi-doom metallic singer ala Motorhead/Opeth maybe (although not a guttural) . While the first two or three tracks might be amusing and interesting, however, we're confronted with a fairly repetitive feel and sure enough, boredom sweeps you halfway through. Just consider this album as a long classic Hawkwind track with extra-mean guitars and vocals that are stretched out and cut in slightly varying versions. Nice to hear once, but I doubt you'll want to sit this album with the master of the genres on your shelves.

4 stars So this one is especially for me!

I bought this when I was about 15 and it was my first truly Psychedelic/Progressive CD.

And with it one of my absolute favourites: Raw, psychedelic (in the truest sense of the word!), twirling heavy rock music. The only reason why I refuse giving it the fifth star mainly is the experience that this Album is not everyone's Cup of tea. This is pointed out by the previous reviewers, as they seem to dislike the album for the reasons I like it (or some of them). The overall sound is a more aggressive version of early Hawkwind-style Space Rock. In fact i even prefer this Album to most of Hawkwinds Records ('though I am a real Fan of the genre). There is doomy heavy riffing (Bad Attitude), hypnotic, swirling, twirling guitar and synth lines (The Elephant Song, my favourite) loads of effects (reverse, echoes etc). There is a little less time for rest than in the following releases, which may be a minus for some listeners. BUT I LOVE IT!

Especially for the fans of psychedelic Stoner/Doom or Hawkwindesque Space Rock. These genres are often plagued by plagiatism and mediocrity, while this record (and the whole band's work) really is kind of unique!

3 stars This debut album is probably a bit immature. 35007 are far from the long suites and the concepts of Liquid. It sounds promising but it's probably too heavy for my tastes. Not that I don't like heavy psychedelic. The problem with this album is that it's following the mood of the moment: some garage-band like sound, some electronic as you can find in most of the Ozric Tentacles works, a nice hendrix-style guitar but nothing more. The best album track is probably "Cosmic Messenger". In its average is a good album, but it doesn't make justice to 35007. They can do more (as they effectively did). However, this is not a bad album. Tracks like "Basiculo ad Cummus" remind to Porcupine Tree and to heavy prog in general.

The most relaxing tracks are hypnotic, the remaining are heavy with a touch of Seattle. It's non-essential, but it can be enjoiyed by the genre fans,not only by collectors, so 3 stars apply.

1 stars From an Old School prog fan point of view, this album is trash. Too many effects, too much noise, too much confusion. Mix is horrible: drums and bass are submerged by a continuos wooosh of noises that spreads all over the tracks and so they are almost inaudible, just guitar stands out. We could say this album is instrumental, as you can hardly say there is any "sung" track, as there are voices here and there, but can hardly be considered "vocal parts". So, this music is ok for anyone who wants to go down heavily on drugs, or which is already stoned at birth, but if anyone is just looking for music, well, just search elsewhere.
