4 stars (From PA blog "Japanese Progressive Rock presented by DamoX")

Michael Furniere, a multi-instrumentalist of SRI AUROBINDO, said to me in Japanese "Heiwa (Peace)". Yes, SRI AUROBINDO play that improvised and peaceful (heiwa-full?) psychedelia with their terrific skill and imagination for progressive rock.

Filled with their laidback flight and their improvised but well-cooperated play, this great huge sound-story named Return Into Earth goes forward like a flying eagle called SRI AUROBINDO. This story gets started with quiet percussion (Cymbal and Gong hits) and dry, surrealistic flute solo. As if a maiden or a nymph dances and gradually flies into the heaven... Exactly the percussion ensemble (double drum & percussionists are here!) with exotic (especially Oriental) mood in their inner space do have such an atmosphere, everyone can feel - it's right indeed, but I also feel that keen flute's and stumbling guitar's sounds are fascinatingly or magically comfortable. Of course trust me the bassist play strictly just as the pacesetter all of them...without steady rhythm section this spacey sound-story cannot burst in such a way. From the middle to the latter parts twin guitars keep growling loudly and construct complete psychedelic clouds in the sky where the "eagle" flies. And the guitars complete feeling the cool air, the eagle slowly tries to go down into the ground...calmly and solemnly.

Over 32 minute sound-story cannot be long and boring at all - let me call this absolutely Oriental Ambient-ish Space Rock with magnificence and magical toxin.

Peace - heiwa. :-)

4 stars They are named after an Indian guru and this tells us much about their spiritually flavoured music. Yes, this is way more than let's say simple Asian influenced hippie music celebrated around a campfire. 'Return Into Earth' is one extended song, maybe you can also claim jam. They provide a special vibe which is skilled, hard to describe - please listen on your own to get the appropriate impression. I assume this is recorded during one session and, if ever, only slightly reworked. A varied instrumentation including tribal percussion are the fundament for this meditative trip.

Echoing flute and banjo, acoustic guitar, decent backing keyboard patterns and pleasant drones, this all takes you away on a hallucinatory journey. Well - somewhere, gliding through the second half, just when you're probably running into danger to be lulled, it all surprisingly turns into another direction. They lose the laid back behaviour, fade into a heavy outraged excursion, switch into some weirdness headed by fuzzy guitars.

'Return Into Earth' represents excellent raga inspired psych prog music- this partially reminds me of diverse German krautrock outfits. An entertainig piece of work which is simply recommended - check this out!
