3 stars Pick a bassist who has likely a funky background, very practical in slapping. Join him with a guitarist capable of creating trippy soundscapes as well as rocking riffs. Now you just have to add a skilled drummer, mix them in a psychedelic pot and you'll have the milk that you shouldn't drink.

The title track of this debut album is likely the only one fully psychedelic, featuring sounds which would fit well in the Ummagumma version of Saucerful of Secrets: a trip of about 9 minutes, very consistent and quite experimental.

All the album, in any case, has a good quality. Good production, even if it was a bandcamp release. It's psychedelic rock, not an ambient album. The sound reminded me to the Dutch band 35007 and their album "Liquid".

Rob Bielen doesn't have, for what I know, other releases or projects out of this Outerspace Milkmen, but Christophoros Triantaphilopoulos aka Chris Silver plays in a band called NOS project and together with Michael Parque on a project called TRILUX which is more Avant/noise oriented.

On this album we can hear influences from OZRIC TENTACLES, and likely because of the Belgian roots of Rob Bielen, also a bit of QUANTUM FANTAY.

A solid 3 stars album, leaning toward the fourth star, very well played and showing a great potential. I haven't listened yet to their second album, released in 2013. Both are available on Bandcamp as "name your price".
