4 stars BRAINTICKET were among the important pioneers of early psychedelic and spaced out cosmic releases "Cottonwoodhil"l, "Psychonaut" & of course "Celestial Ocean". BRAINTICKET is actually the brainchild of Joel Vandroogenbroeck of Switzerland with other musicians taking part on different albums. On "Celestial Ocean" Joel is joined by Carole Muriel with her cosmic voice and Barney Palm (percussion). Music is really early Krautrock mixed with a fair amount of analog and spacey keyboards. Songs definitely explore the outer reaches of your mind with some pretty trippy moments all around. Instrumentation is also quite varied with loads of NASA-like space sound bites and some great percussion. This excellent space journey now can be yours thanks for the folks at Purple Pyramid Records who have released this gem for the first time on CD... A journey of a lifetime.

4 stars This album has been published in 1974 but remains absolutely modern and dynamic. I consider it as the last Brainticket's consistent work. After the primitive, stoned and weird improvisations of the two first, this time the Swiss collective put the priority on monumental, sensual electronic synth moves, also including acoustic arrangements (flute, "exotic" percussions, piano...). Their style is now closer to classic progressive rock within a lyrical tendency and technical instrumentations, partially rejecting the "kosmische" kraut essays of their debut. We are more into a meditative astral exploration, featuring natural organic sounds, creative harmonies and spaces. However krautrock fans won't be disappointed: "Celestial Ocean" is maybe much more organised and orchestrated but contains catchy psychedelic scintillations. "Egyptian kings" is a hypnotic world of sounds, including repetitive bass lines, druggy flute parts and a "cosmic" combination of voices. "Rainbow" is a kind of electronic raga for crystalline loops. "The space between" is an esoteric, atmospheric & percussive interlude . The epic and colourful "Visions" is almost symphonic. Profound and really achieved!

4 stars BRAINTICKET's third release finds the band stripped down to a trio. We get a different female vocalist for the third album in a row in Carol Muriel who also plays synths and zither.

The album starts off with my favourite BRAINTICKET track "Egyptian Kings". Everytime this song came on at work this week it had my full attention. It's one of those songs you hit the repeat button for when it's over. It starts off with some intricate sounds and lots of atmosphere. A full sound arrives a minute in. Male and female vocals are spoken. Low end guitar, organ, flute and drums lead the way. It has such a groovy, addictive rhythm. The organ before 5 minutes has a Canterbury flavour to it. "Jardins" features zither throughout, sounding a lot like a harp actually. Female vocals are spoken. Acoustic guitar and flute add to the sound. It blends into "Rainbow" where we get an Indian flavour added. The sound builds after a minute. Spacey synths all by themselves after 2 minutes to end it.

"Era Of Technology" opens with organ as we get more spoken words all speaking at once. No real melody until drums come pounding in at 1 1/2 minutes. Cool sound as spoken words continue.The song changes completely 5 minutes in for the better. Flute, zither, vocal melodies and percussion fill out the sound. "To Another Universe" opens with what sounds like vibes as percussion comes in. Synths and some catchy organ (later) create the sound. It blends into "The Space Between" as spoken words join existing melody. Words stop after 2 minutes. Synths and percussion to end it. "Cosmic Wind" is a very mellow and spacey song. Big surprise given the title. Zither and flute lead the way. Strummed guitar arrives 4 1/2 minutes in. "Visions" features some beautiful sounding piano melodies for 2 1/2 minutes. The tempo then picks up as percussion is added. Synths 4 1/2 minutes in. It ends with male and female vocals saying "Egyptian kings" over and over with a spacey background.

This one and "Psychonaut" are my two favourite BRAINTICKET records. Both are great examples of what Krautrock is all about.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Errors and Omissions Team
4 stars Maybe first album in Krautrock genre I've ever heard. And so I wonder, was this wise choice ? After first listen, I wanted to give this just three stars. But "Jardins" was too strong to stand still. Such a potential in it. But short "Rainbow" was so annoying, "Era of Technology" so gray that I wasn't able to see something. Some people are colour-blind, maybe I'm psychedelic/kraut blind. But I don't believe it, because I could appreciate some of these albums in past.

I'm just not so keen on it, not in ecstasy from every cosmic sound I can hear here. So after good first two tracks came these "noises" (for me, not necessarily for you) which ends for a while with other half of "The Space Between" but only to return to some strange mumbling which could be heard in previous track. "Cosmic Winds" is again up on this strange sinusoid. Pleasant track to listen with these krautrock influences I like. OK, I lied a little bit, this is not my first Kraut album. At least it don't follow usual pattern, for example last track, "Vision" is very unique and as epilogue to story I didn't get is great.

So, follow the crowd and give 4 stars, or have my own mind and rate it 3. I have better idea - giving it 3.51, so it can fell to four star category. Because I really don't know how to move it from this average, 3-4 place. But there is this story which can be good (as soon as I'll understand it), so better mark is here. Enjoy it as well proggers.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Post/Math Rock Team
4 stars Brainticket are a group from Switzerland. Celestial Ocean is their third album and is more modern sounding than the first two which almost sound like something from the 1960s rather than the 1970s. The use of synthesizers here clearly places this album in the mid-70s. Although the album is made up of individual songs, this really sounds like two epics since there are no breaks between the songs.

"Egyptain Kings" is the best song here and possibly the best song Brainticket ever made. I just love this song. It starts with random noises before a completely awesome riff on synth which continues for the rest of the track. A male voice speaks then a female voice repeats what he says. There is some good organ along with the synth. Later some wordless vocals and the drumming gets louder. An overdubbed organ solos over top of everything for the last minute or so. "Rainbow" starts with acoustic guitar and the sitar from the previous song, "Jardins". The volume increases, then gets quieter. Ends with sequencers.

"Era Of Technology" begins with dramatic organ. Then three voices can be heard: 1) a female (English), 2) a male(German), and 3) another male(French). I assume they are all saying the same thing. This is a very spacey and trippy song. Later some pounding percussion comes in. Near the end the percussion stops and then some melodic zither(?) and some flute. Then male vocals that remind me of Robert Wyatt. "To Another Universe" starts with xylophone, then rhythmic synth and zither(?). More synths come in. Two synths do a call and response thing. Some percussion, later organ.

"The Space Between" continues with the same music as "Universe". The three voices in English, German and French come back again. Some cool synth in this song. After the talking stops a synth solo. "Visions" begins with two pianos. At first they are playing two different things, but later compliment each other. The pianos change and then some percussion. Music stops and then some zither(?), then synths come in. Song ends with a reprise of the vocals from "Egyptian Kings".

This album is worth hearing for "Egyptian Kings" alone. Fairly consistent and a good sounding recording. Nothing truly original I guess, but a great mix of instruments. Almost equally spacey and melodic. I've only heard Brainticket's first three albums, but this is the best out of the three. 4 stars.

Review by Bonnek
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
4 stars Retaining only the drummer and vocalist from the previous album, Joel Vandroogenbroeck steers his Brainticket project into entirely different directions again for this third album. Two years have past since 'Psychonaut' and the 60's adoration has been tuned down in favor of a more experimental and electronic sound.

'Egyptian Kings' is a solid opener, immediately recognizable as a Brainticket track, with it propulsive organ-driven rhythm, whispered vocals and hazy atmosphere, much more relaxed and mature then previous work. Two short tracks follow with an ethnic flavor, putting the sitar upfront in the mix. 'Era of Technology' starts with lots of percussion and 'sampled' talking vocals, it almost seems to return to the stoned drone of the debut, but it's much more concise and gives way to a very contrasting end section with Wyatt-alike vocals.

Every other song seems to bring new ideas, and also 'To Another Universe/The Space Between' keeps the album fresh and surprising. It's an electronic piece a bit in the vein of what Cluster and Kraftwerk were doing in the same year. The ethnic accent returns on 'Cosmic Wind', offering a very reflective and dreamy vibe. It flows beautifully into 'Visions', where the piano takes over and changes the melancholic mood to subtle major keys.

Brainticket offer a new trip with every new album. I'd say this one is the best and most consistent, slightly preferred to the preceding 'Psychonaut'.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Brainticket's third album stepped back from the freakout direction of their debut and Psychonaut in favour of teasing out the space rock side of their sound, creating a serene but surreal journey based on the Egyptian lore of the afterlife (as recorded in the Book of the Dead). The subject matter was in vogue at the time, of course - Van der Graaf Generator did a song called The Boat of Millions of Years on a similar theme - but Brainticket execute it well and tease out the electronic possibilities they would explore further on later releases such as Adventure. I didn't rate Psychonaut particularly well but I think Brainticket have more than adequately recaptured my attention here.
