Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars CAUSA SUI are a Psychedelic band out of Denmark, yes the same country that brought us our own Guldbamsen. There's very little information that comes with this cd, not even what instruments the guys play but I like the cover art.

I was taken aback when I first heard the first song "Homage" as I wasn't expecting something so heavy. It starts out fairly subdued but that changes quickly as this heavy duty soundscape takes over reminding me of THE SMASHING PUMPKINS at their heaviest or the Dutch band 35007's "Liquid" recording. "The Juice" opens with electronics coming and going then a full sound kicks in. It does settle back but not for long as contrasts continue. The guitar is grinding it out before 3 minutes then he's ripping it up after 4 minutes as the drums pound away. I love when it settles down before 5 minutes, beautiful. "Echo Springs" has this beat with bass and guitar as background organ and electronics help out. A pleasant and enjoyable song. "Boozehound" is the only song I can't get into at all. I just don't like the rhythm or flavour of it. Sure it's catchy but i'm not a fan.

"Mireille" becomes fairly uptempo with busy drums and intricate guitar. The guitar turns powerful 2 1/2 minutes in. It settles back to that earlier sound after 4 minutes. I get a kick out of how busy the drummer is on this track even during the more laid back passages. "Fichelscher Sun" is a short piece with intricate guitar expressions as another guitar is strummed. "Ju-Ju Blues" is my favourite track on here. The guitar and especially the organ sounds are so uplifting to me. A sudden change after 1 1/2 minutes as it all turns powerful including some killer guitar before 3 minutes that lights it up until around 5 1/2 minutes when the song returns to that earlier sound. Nice. "Sota El Cel" is a short atmospheric piece that builds then settles back late. It almost sounds like mellotron here. "Euporie" is my second favourite tune. Spacey sounds echo before it quickly kicks into gear. Love the tone of the guitar here as it also seems to echo. It does settle back but then kicks back in a minute later. Another calm before 5 minutes as this song continues to shift. It turns pretty heavy before 6 minutes and the guitar starts to solo over top at 7 minutes. Another spacey calm a minute later but then it ends heavily. What a ride. "Eternal Flow" is the chilled out finale. A laid back and drifting track with percussion, guitar and keys standing out as it changes slightly along the way. An almost dead calm 8 minutes in to the end.

The album came in like a lion but went out like a lamb. 4 stars for this psychedelic offering from Denmark.

5 stars If you consider yourself a psychedelic/space rock connoisseur, you need some Causa Sui in your music collection. While 2013's Europie Tide is not the band's best album, it is the best place to start. Now, that's not to say it's not great, because it is pure psychedelic greatness. The band's sound ...

4 stars Heavy music from Denmark arrives! Here in Sweden, we had a (kind of) psychedelic rock band called "Träd, gräs och stenar". I like their heavyness and their ambling swing but I find the music too monotonous and amateurish. This record has the same heavyness and the same wandering rocking but a ... (read more)
