Review by Prog-jester
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.
Review by Sean Trane
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.

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 ... (read more)

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 sta ... (read more)
