4 stars The title of this album is a clear reference to the Pink Floyd album of almost the same name, except for the last word, which has been replaced by stone. The band describes their music has "post space with stoner music". This is an instrumental album with loud guitar riffs and a huge bass sound. This is their version of that legendary Pink Floyd album adding to some space, psychedelic passages some stoner and doom metal with an intense atmosphere, hypnotic rhythms that will grab you instantly. You will enjoy the drums intro in the song "Silent Window" and in the middle of the song "Metamorph" because of the contrast it offers with the guitar. The drums are showing some inventive patterns and an occasion to gives a little breather in the music. This is a solid album, not really a bad track.
