3 stars It's an honor for me to be the first reviewer of this album because is an interesting psychedelic work.

From the hard and catchy opener "Pitiful Whining" (full of reminiscences of Hawkwind Psych-era) to the last notes of "Take It", that reminds Pink Floyd 70's floating tracks, the album is an enjoyable bunch of songs that keeps the listener with the ears open wide perhaps is not an original album but there's one important reason why this album is simply good: just because is a fine psych/space rock album. That's all.

There's no big suprises: heavy guitar riffs, good lyrics, catchy rhythms, floating sections... But in between there are some highlights:

-Pitiful Whining: As I said, a great opener full of 70's psych influences.

-We Came Too Late: Maybe the top 1 of the album. A slow rhythmical song close to a 70's heavy rock ballad with spacy melodies.

-It All Happens Here: Another song a la Hawkwind. Really proggy and catchy.

-Another Kind Of Vibe: Thrilling. Mixes the classic late 60's psych arrangements with the actual influences in the genre. Heavy but floating.

It deserves some attention. Not a masterpiece but every track has some kind of retro catchy magic... Give it a chance... You wouldn't be dissapointed... 3*
