SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions
4 stars Another great effort with the prognosis for a psych/space masterpiece - let us allow enough time and we'll see. Here we have four well thought out songs provided with spaced out jam periods here and there. They let the music flow based on their longstanding experience and make sure that something like boredom won't come up. This sounds like FBFOS are collaborating with Baby Woodrose's Dragontears - stylistically related, not rehashed though. A bit american west coast psychedelia feeling here plus some heavy psych excursions there - which forms the skeleton in order to embed wonderful improvisational spacey parts. The band are reduced to the three-piece core here on this production - so the multiple playful guitar contributions are mostly overdubbed.

As should be expected, the long title track makes out the centerpiece - a spacey intro lets you feel like an astronaut gliding through space and time supported by an extraterrestrial gripping synth work. A varied trip furthermore leads you through short heavier rocking storms provided with rare vocal presence ... as well as long grooving interplanetary voyages with excellently corresponding instruments in the vein of Oresund Space Collective. Finally you wonder how time flies - 23 minutes are vanishing in a snap!

Decorated with nice female/male vocals Turn Left To The Mexican Barbeque at first is made like Greateful Dead and Allman Brothers Band are struggling for supremacy - but this doesn't stay for long of course because they later fade into a fantastic relaxed flow which will please every space rock fan. The melodic Demons and Haze even has some singing along moments - sounds very retro - like a leftover from the 70's - including a gorgeous hallucinogenic finale.

Smokin' is a bonus track especially reserved for the CD production and a strong argument to avoid the LP version - no reason to miss this one (sorry to you vinyl aficionados). This is another example for an unexhaustible reservoir of inspiration. Again it's the variety which impresses - weird synth contributions - a jazzy groove - playful guitars. American west coast psychedelia competes with a Hawkwind adapted mood, also folksy impressions and hallucinatory floating parts. This new FBFOS output is a reliable addition to your space rock collection.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars This third effort by Swedish space rocker First Band From Outer Space presents us with a band seemingly in the process of shifting their stylistic expression, and while still remaining within the space rock realms they are now heading towards a completely different part of it.

Their previous album basically came across as a heavier version of British institution Hawkwind, blending in some nice Sabbath-inspired moods. This time around only fragments and a few select segments remain of the former, while the latter has been almost completely eradicated from their sound.

They have traded this with a stronger emphasis on improvisation and light, vintage psychedelic sounds. As well as generally more elaborate constructions. The end result is a CD residing somewhere in between Pink Floyd, Oresund Space Collective and Hawkwind in overall sound, with a few passing nods in the direction of early 70's improvisational based psychedelic rock acts. Mostly good but at least on this occasion not quite managing to create as intriguing moods as on their previous efforts. A good album though, and one that fans of Oresund Space Collective in particular should take notice of.
