5 stars Essential listening from this classic freak out jazzy rock Danish collective . The central role is given to guitar's explosive groovy leads and psychedelic soundscapes. Each composition is ferocious and perfectly achieved, always delivering a dynamic sense of rhythm and extremely gorgeous synth / atmospheric arrangements. The album starts with "Oysterjungle", an eccentric, tripped out instrumental with dense, hyper active rhythms and solid organ / violin parts. "Mind Movie" is a brilliant, contemplative and epic musical exploration, making a large part to improvised wha wha guitars, reflective piano sequences. The composition is magnificent, absorbing, with always rocking psychedelic accelerations. "Pajamamafia" is an ultra technical, groovy and funkadelic excursion with a non stop dialogue between brass instruments. "Black Myst" is a sympathetic heavy rocking "trip", including eccentric brass lines. "Painforest" delivers spaced out guitars, floating upon a delicate, beautiful atmosphere. Exclusively instrumental, constantly beautiful and exciting. Among the best fusion jazz efforts I've heard. At the same level of the best things written by The Mahavishnu Orchestra in stoner, darker dimensions.
