3 stars This naughty album has really interesting line up, as there are three drummers abroad, and again Mr. Makoto on guitar.

"Cosmoerotic Giveaway" pioneers the record with aggressive approach, synthesizing noise rock elements with cosmic space rock phases. "Stara Planina (slight return)" treats then cosmic mantras with tender manner, and sounds quite much Acid Mothers Temple. Wildly twisting guitars entangle to each other in both chaotic and pleasant manner. Really delicate and solemn quiet moments follow, which evidently fall back to maelstrom of confusion. "Return of The Captain Beefstake's Love Apparatus" redeems the promise of its name, being a hazy chaotic piece with ecstatic theme for guitar and voices. Hypnotically waving sea has fast sabre dance flashbacks, but otherwise the determined ride to heart of storm is completed without disasters.

Two parted song coupling starts with "Cookies & Milk", where the characteristic musical elements are mixed to more distant sounding quick power tunes smashing in. Subtle arrangement gives form to a brutal space rocker, wailing furiously with echoed hollow calls and violent sax solo. I believe "Breakfast with Azrael" starts from a short moment of calmness, soon returning then to a chaos ride of ethereal rhythm sounds and singing, creating long lasting wonderful scenario.

The final track "Torture Vessel from The Triangle World" is then a solemn cosmic ambient sequence, shimmering with universal peace. Saxophone and atonal sound effects start to claim their presence, and the whole band rises slowly to front, yet not relying to any melodic nor rhythmic patterns, creating over thirteen minutes long wave of sound. This fine noise abstract innovation was maybe the best track here for me on the album along with its predecessor.

Eventually I enjoyed this album more than "Black Om Rising", but the overall feeling appeared bit distressing, though the chaos noising had great counterbalancing elements supporting them. I also liked many of the violent parts, but certainly this record needs a proper mood for listening, which I possibly did not have when studying this album.
