4 stars TEETH OF THE SEA are a British band who play a Psychedelic/ Electronic style of music with a Sci-Fi flavour. Lots of electronics on this one and the trumpet is a nice feature that you wouldn't normally expect with this kind of music. I would even go as far to say that the music here isn't far from Techno at times. This has been a blast to listen to with the many great ideas that they employ and that often catchy in your face beat along with the many spacey atmospheres. This is very innovative and I don't have a lot of music that I can compare with this.

"Leder" is a short intro track with robotic vocals with a dark atmosphere. It's easy to tell that these guys are into Sci- Fi movies and novels. "Reaper" is one of my favourites. A repetitive beat that sounds like a drum machine starts us off as other sounds come and go. A keyboard melody helps out but there's a lot going on here as this song plays out. It settles into a groove after 3 1/2 minutes with synths, a beat and more. The guitar comes in around 5 1/2 minutes and proceeds to light it up. "The Servant" has these spoken works that are done in a psychedelic manner as a beat and trumpet help out. The spoken words come and go. Such a cool sounding piece. "Black Stategy" has two different beats as inventive sounds come and go including voices. A change after 3 minutes when an electronic melody kicks in over top along with spacey synths. Guitar before 4 1/2 minutes as that beat continues as the flavour changes all around it.

"Pleiades Underground/ Inexorable Master" has a spacey intro as the piano is slowly played. It turns heavy before 3 minutes including some doom-like guitar. "Siren Spectre" is such a spacey track and it has this dark vibe as it drifts in and out. Beautiful. Trumpet before around 6 minutes followed by a heavy beat. "Put Me On Your Shoulders So I Can See The Rats" has this electronic humming and another strange sounds as spoken words come in. Piano and clapping late. Crazy stuff. "All Human Is Error" has a repetitive beat as experimental sounds come and go throughout. Love it! "Responder" is another favourite of mine. We get spacey electronics as the trumpet joins in early along with drums. A calm before 4 1/2 minutes then a catchy beat kicks in. I'm reminded of NEU! for some reason.

It's so good to hear something a little different and it's all done so well. These guys aren't short on ideas and I for one really appreciate the innovation.
