Review by Rivertree
4 stars Never ever expected! For quite some years the band's trademark was presented due to the congenial front couple Roderick and Anisa Romero, no doubt ... but then they unfortunately divorced. After that SKY CRIES MARY occasionally appeared live on the stage, a regular studio album though seemed to be far away. Now finally in 2020 the renewed band line up was capable of creating a fantastic rebound, featuring rather extended tracks, yeah! Debra Reese is dedicated to fill the position of the appropriate female singer now. Partially the vocals are departing from the known familiar standard to a way more spaced out expression. And the compositional and instrumental scope is enhanced, strikes more than ever I would say. Concerning that I suspect Ben Ireland (drums, keyboards) has a bigger share than ever, for the good of all.

'A cosmic telepathy of sorts evolved our music into orchestral compositions' he tells us. The band intensively goes progressive psychedelic here at any rate. Spacey synths all over, some hidden treasures given, which solely unveiled after several listening sessions. The Drunken Pilot for example is shifting them into really new wayword dimensions. Curt Eckman on the bass as well as both guitarists Kevin Whitworth and Jack Endino are delivering an excellent job too. Trapeze Dancer comes a bit triphop infected. Finally Born From My Mouth somehow sounds like a fruitful collaboration with Robbi Robb. With more than 50 minutes of playing time this album is a recommended sonic journey. Probably you may meet somebody who will claim that the psychedelic space genre is running out of spirit. Just introduce him/her to this item. 4.5 stars.
