3 stars QUANTUM FANTAY are dancing in limbo right here while playing with track names respectively times en passant. Whereas the limbo bar is lowered during the course, something quite essential in order to keep things in suspense, the track lengths are slightly increasing though - for one second again and again exactly. Well, this smells like a concept. Concerning the line-up there's a minor change to state on guitar, yet Tom Tas is aboard, substituting Dario Frodo, who at least guests on one track though.

QUANTUM FANTAY surely are a flagship when it comes to groovy space rock music, Pete Mush's synthesizer work comes exemplary overall. And, yeah, Ed Wynne is involved here too, which vehemently points to the album's musical essence. Therefore this album is made of spacey stuff as usual, in the vein of Ozric Tentacles, Mantric Muse, Tidal Flood, Hidria Spacefolk and similar. A proper formula indeed, designated band fans will be delighted again, also since Sla (Karel Slabbaert) is one of the party once more with his flute.

Where the last three album songs are more from a decent attitude, the opener Nimbo immediately hit me like a storm. Probably the most inspired song I've heard from them by now. Due to what? ... eh, maybe it's the constantly alternating tempo and mood, or just also taking the dub drenched parts into account, alternatively the magnificent rhythm as well as soloing guitar. A perfect tune they can be proud of. Would be nice to know which band member finally could limbo under the bar at best.
