PSYCHEDELIC/SPACE ROCK

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Psychedelic/Space Rock definition

Psychedelic Progressive Rock

Progressive rock music has its roots in the mid 1960's psychedelic cultural phenomena. During that time the British Invasion and folk-rock bands began to expand the sonic possibilities of their music. These groups slowly started to abandon the concise verse-chorus-verse patterns of rock & roll, and moved towards fluid, free-form oriented song structures. Just as important was the incorporation of elements from Indian and Eastern music. Along them the principles of free-form jazz were included to the psychedelic sound, emphasising spontaneous emotions over calculated and estimated compositional constructions. Experimenting with new studio technology, electronically altering instruments and voices, was a part of this altered approach as well. Acid rock groups like THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and CREAM stand as descriptive and popular examples of the path from psychedelic sunshine pop towards a more aggressive and distinct rock expression, in particular showcased in their improvised live performances.

The boundary dividing the "Experimental" and "Progressive" classification is a thin and at times contested one for this era. The pioneering psychedelic progressive rock bands to be found at www.progarchives.com will in most cases be found in the Proto-Prog section of the site. Amongst these pioneering outfits are acts like THE BEATLES, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE AND VANILLA FUDGE. Artists such as PINK FLOYD will not be found there though, as their career extended well beyond these first, formative years.

Psychedelic progressive rock music may contain the elements previously described in varying combinations, but the artistic perspective of progressive rock is another factor. Some psychedelic rock bands stuck to the mid 1960's beat rock style in purist form, not partaking in the experimental development of the impressionistic possibilities of psychedelic rock music others spearheaded. The evolution of the psychedelic depth within a progressive context could be seen for instance in the 1960's recordings of ARCADIUM and BABY GRANDMOTHERS. One good example of early 70's Continental European progressive psychedelic rock is the album by AHORA MAZDA, and from Britain JADE WARRIOR's early efforts fuse psychedelic rock and ethnic music. Current artists exploring the vintage 60's/70's style and sound are acts like THE SPACIOUS MINDS and ACID MOTHER'S TEMPLE.

The entire Western pop culture scene was influenced by the psychedelic culture to some extent, including other prog genres such as Prog Folk. In Germany, artists influenced by the British psychedelic movement formed their own genre called KRAUTROCK. The pioneering early 70's bands in this genre represent the progressive acid rock sound of Germany, experimenting with long instrumental improvisations, emphasizing the use of psychedelic effects and weird electronic sounds. Some examples are artists like AMON DÜÜL, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, GÄA, NECRONOMICON and YATHA SIDHRA. The PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC style emerged from Krautrock. Some of the most influential artists of this genre, such as TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE, explored a distinct psychedelic musical style at first, which was influential for the development of the "space rock" sound:


Progressive Space Rock

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene also spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation.

Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. HAWKWIND's live album "Space Ritual" is said to be the ultimate space rock album due to the collaboration with sci-fi author Michael Moorcock. His lyrics are performed by a narrator and underlaid with synth elements. PINK FLOYD can be regarded as pioneers of spacey music during the band's early phase, as exemplified by certain tracks from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" or the stirring live performance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene" from "Ummagumma". GROBSCHNITT provides another fine example of classic space rock with their epic effort "Solar Music". Other bands explored the space rock sound for a limited time period only. GONG released groundbreaking albums in the genre at the start of their career, while British hard rock band UFO released the extraordinary album "Flying - One Hour Space Rock" as their sole contribution to the genre in 1971.

A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound. Swedish bands are known for a brisk exchange of musicians among each other. The "Strange Daze" festivals from 1997-2000 showcased the American space rock scene. Japan is an inexhaustible reservoir of artists exploring both psychedelic progressivce rock and progressive space rock. Representative examples of the style are bands such as ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE with their focus on long grooving improvisations, QUARKSPACE and OZRIC TENTACLES with their stronger emphasis on electronic elements and VESPERO and HIDRIA SPACEFOLK with their inclusion of ethnic-originating musical components. Other groups like ESCAPADE and THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS represent an avantgarde approach to the genre, whereas SUBARACHNOID SPACE and KINSKI are examples of artists that provide transitions to the post rock genre.


The boundaries of Psychedelic Progressive Rock connected with Stoner Rock and Acid Folk

The 1960's and 70's were a time of liberation, a time of rebellion against rigid rules and strict moral boundaries. In those "freedom of expression" days, an artist would typically herald their liberal attitudes as a mind-expanding trip on stage together with the audience in two ways. One was to realize audio/visually the visual and auditory hallucination as it was, and another was to play their repertoire spiritually and improvisationally under the trip. As for the latter approach, they devoted themselves solely to slow-to-mid tempo playing with low-tuned guitars in a heavy and expansive manner for playing steadily under this twilight condition. In the same time period, this approach to the musical trip was also taken on by some artists especially in the hard rock and heavy metal scene. This new style, drenched in heavy and downer psychedelia, was called "Stoner Rock". The name originates from the expression "stoned", referring to people in altered states of mind while under the influence of psychedelic substances. The Stoner Rock genre was universalized "as a strict musical style only" by the Industrial Grunge Rock genre that gained worldwide popularity in the early 1990s. The common denominator of all the artists mentioned is the representation of their personal cultural and political backgrounds, whilst playing slow-paced depressive songs with heavy guitars and echoic rumbling drums as the dominating features. Most of current outfits claiming to be the so-called Psychedelic Heavy Progressive Rock ones should be much influenced by the traditional Stoner or Grunge Rock as well as the early Psychedelic Progressive Rock. They can be considered as a borderline case between Psychedelic Progressive, Heavy Progressive, and Progressive Metal.

"Acid Folk" can be mentioned as another musical style with hallucinogenic approach. Psych Folk or Psychedelic Folk are other names for this genre, and is vaguely defined as a rock subgenre due to the mixture of folk rock and psychedelic rock. This is a style lacking in strict definitions, and it is contested whether or not the term was actually used at what is deemed the dawn of the genre. It's an undeniable fact that the Acid Folk scene gained some popularity by the efforts of artists in "The Folk Revivalism", but it's important to remember that there were two distinctly different approaches taken by those who helped shape the genre in the mid 1960's. Some folk singers approached a psychedelic rock structure as was popular at that time, while some psychedelic rock outfits tried to absorb and incorporate techniques and elements from folk rock. Both have great importance in the development of Acid Folk, and this may be the reason that strict definitions of the genre cannot be given. In view of the history, it's no exaggeration to claim that TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SYD BARRETT or THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND in UK rock scene seasoned the "traditional" Acid Folk with a more progressive spice. They, as eccentric or heretical rock outfits, accepted and incorporated Middle-Eastern and Oriental elements or instruments, and the result was the foundation for the current progressive Acid Folk movement. And in the Eastern parts of the world, different acid streams was provided by artists such as TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS or MAGICAL POWER MAKO who exerted a great influence on younger progressive bands. Their amazing achievements resides in the twilight zone between the Prog Folk and Psychedelic Prog subgenres.


A path that never ends

In addition of the styles described, psychedelic elements can be found in many other genres of progressive rock. The psychedelic cultural explosion had an immense influence on the western popular culture, and traces of it can still be heard also outside of progressive rock circles. The collective techno rave parties carry on the legacy of the audiovisual attack from the PINK FLOYD concerts in 1968, to cite one example. As the psychedelic movement was a large cultural phenomenon, it is difficult (and maybe unnecessary) to fence it to a clear category. Psychedelic progressive rock has been developing towards several different directions over time, and the task of classifying them as distinct genres and sub-genres is an ever ongoing process, often loaded with strong opinions. The psychedelic rock artists which are not considered as progressive in style are not listed in the databse of www.Progarchives.com. This in order to maintain the site's scope to be a progressive rock reference.

The aim of this description is to be a tool of reference for potential and existing fans of the genre, and we hope that this will aid those who read it to a better understanding of the genre as well as to enjoy and discuss the subject at hand both in the forums of the Progarchives website as well as in other places online and offline both.

Lizards Exist Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

4 stars Beaming down from Croatia in 2010, the bafflingly named Lizard's Exist made an instant splash on the psychedelic and spacerock scene with their privately released self-titled debut four years later. The four piece band offer a vinyl-length jammy, improvised mix of extended instrumentals loaded with mind-warping keyboard melts, heavy guitar grooves and delirious unhinged drumming full of spontaneity, and even some refreshingly sly little winks of humour! Taking in influences from early Pink Floyd, Nektar, little traces of the Ozric Tentacles and even modern improvised spacerock acts like the Oresund Space Collective, the Lizard's take it one step further by bringing unpredictable driving, gutsier, punchier bursts of power and energy hurtling through the slowly unfolding and drifting expansive cosmic atmospheres...or something like that!

Right from the opener, it's clear that the album perfectly captures a genuine 70's vibe, which is due to the band only using vintage equipment that was available in that era. `Bamija' jumps back and forth between slow-burn mystery and up-tempo runs of frantic eruptions, sounding like a blend of the first tiny cosmic Sixties steps of the Pink Floyd and perhaps even the first Nektar album. Ponderous bass, propulsive drumming and shimmering Fender Rhodes organ pin-pricks and fiery wailing electric guitar simmer slowly one minute and rage in a sucking vacuum-like vortex of distortion the next, and be sure to listen out for the whispering Mellotron veils that grow into a choir in the finale. Mellow guitar blues and disorientating splintering shards cut through `Ljetni Hit', and just as the piece seems to come to a rather clunky abrupt ending, it's all a tease as the band tears straight back into a noisy psychedelic freak-out with funky wah-wah guitars, nimble-fingered infernal Hammond organ runs and the obligatory wild Seventies extended drum solo!

`58' is full of an infectious and frequently playful bouncing energy with rapid-fire interplay between funky guitars, manic drumming, scratchy Hammond organ and pulsating bass, plus some Ozrics- like synth bubbles for good measure - never a bad thing! The band then close on the seventeen minute `Anunnaki Dance' that travels through a wide range of moods and environments. A slow psych build over glistening keys around chiming guitars, perfectly controlled drums slowly building in tempo, murmuring bass snaking along the background, rising and falling synth washes and electric piano fingertips tickling the horizon. The warmest of Hammond organ blankets envelope bluesy smouldering guitar wailing, before the band head for deepest space with echoing freeform sonic Glissando explorations that trickle like raindrops. A howling vacuum of feedback has the band escaping the black hole as confident thick droning Hammond organ and driving guitars swirl to a powerful climax.

If there is one complaint to make, it's that the bass is mixed far too low in some parts of the album. Where it should be upfront and making its presence known, it almost vanishes altogether to become a fairly non-descript barely audible thud in the background. Should the Lizard guys get picked up by a label who plan to re-release the album commercially, get that bass mixed way up and all will be right with the world!

But as it is, this self-titled debut from Lizard's Exist is still an exceptionally well-performed and exciting, lively take on all sounds jammy and psychedelic, and best of all, their music never comes across as aimless, instead always still remaining melodic and focused within the realms of improvisation. The four years the band have spent honing their skills have paid off with an exceptional debut album that already shows so much talent and even more potential to come. It's currently available on CD and download from their Bandcamp page at an absolute bargain price that puts many full-priced and established albums and artists to shame, so there's no excuse for not exploring this wonderful new young band!

Four stars.

Ritual
Nemrud Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by danyboy

5 stars This is a review of delux LP version of Nemrud - Ritual

This album represents for me, this is Nemrud's creative peak. The songs are arresting, the vocals sublime and - like Eloy's "Inside" - it is one of the few concept albums that really works, rather than simply being a collection of vaguely thematically linked songs with a hit single and some below par filler thrown in for good measure.

Ritual is a concept album, about the troubled person who tries to face himself in the dreams for his own salvation. What makes this album one of the best Nemrud offerings, is the way the classic formula of electric guitar, Organ and Smooth vocals comes together so well. I had felt that on their previous album, and indeed on some that followed, that the overall feel of the album was marred by moments of banality. 'Ritual' doesn't seem to suffer for this.

"In My Mind" is a great opener, complete with the sound of a robotic sounds at the beggining. Apparently the band had acquired a tape from various keyboards for this. I'm not convinced about the poetry that sits on top of the music on this track, but the guitar part, and the energy of the song do make for an exhilerating opener.

In "Sorrow by Oneself" Nemrud present their most accomplished and moving songs.

"Light" is a simple beautiful song, opening with gentle keyboard, and setting the scene for a fine perfomance from Mert Gocay. One of the best moments in the album.

For the closure title track "Ritual", the song is really a splendid piece of contemporary music breaking the borders of labels and styles; this work helped - and helped too much to set the guidelines for what we today call prog-rock or simply prog. It has a powerful melody and great guitar part at the opening. It's my favorite Nemrud's track as well. The music flows naturally with ambient vocal at the opening, moving up into an energetic style with drum beats and guitar riffs. I always repeat this track whenever I play this album like what I'm doing now. The combined work of keyboard and electric guitar is really excellent.

This is a really good album with Mert Gocay's best lyrics, compositions, and a great overall effort from the band that really deserves the attention that it gets. It is not quite a masterpiece, however, and Nemrud managed to create those in the forms of future albums that will follow.

If you haven't heard this album, it is highly recommended as an excellent addition to your psychedelic rock collection.

A Tab In The Ocean
Nektar Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by danyboy

4 stars "A Tab In The Ocean" is an absolute Nektar's masterpiece. The songwriting here is more sophisticated that is has been in the past, and the musicianship still reigns supreme, and the compositions are still incredibly complex if not more so. This music is highly psychedelic and jam packed full of instruments from all eras of time. One thing that I've always loved about Nektar is keyboard sounds, usually they are using much more interesting keyboard variations than other bands. Most of the music is full of energy, but is always wildly creative and never boring in th least. Very highly recommended masterly crafted 70's Psychedelic Rock.

Eloy Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Pastmaster

5 stars 'Eloy' is the self-titled debut studio album by hard rock/space rock band Eloy. Eloy is most known for their combination of hard rock/heavy metal and space rock on their 'Inside' and later albums, however with their debut release there isn't any space rock to be found here. This is a bluesy hard rock/heavy metal album not all that dissimilar to what they would make later, except without the space rock sounds.

Like previously stated, this is primarily bluesy hard rock/heavy metal with room for experimentation. The first comparison that comes to mind is Rush's self-titled debut. Both debuts are criticized, because a lot of fans of both bands find them to lack in comparisons to the albums they made during their height. However, when you stop comparing you really see just how great these albums are. The song 'Eloy' has some great heavy riffing, and a very beautiful chorus with the lyrics 'In a land of freedom'. After the beginning is where the experimental instrumentation comes in with an avant-garde drum solo during the bridge. I love how towards the end of the solo, you can hear the bass guitar subtly in the background. The 8-minute 'Something Yellow' has an awesome menacing guitar solo that foreshadows the amazing menacing solos on albums like 'Floating'.

Speaking of menacing, my favorite song from the album, and one of my favorite Eloy songs is 'Song of a Paranoid Soldier'. This song has all I want in early heavy metal, having anti-war lyrics, menacing Black Sabbath-esque diminished chords, and an amazing vocal performance that matches with the music. Another one of my favorites is the Deep Purple-esque stomp of 'Dillus Roady', with the marching stomp of the organ and guitar. Not to mention the great guitar soloing in the song. If you get the remaster with bonus tracks, you get a few short but sweet songs like the driving opening riffs of 'Walk Alone'.

Overall, for anyone wanting some hard rocking proto-metal, you can't go wrong here. Highly recommended for fans of Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and other bands of that ilk.

4.5 rounded up to 5.

Lunar Jetman
Pharaoh Overlord Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars For me the finnish group PHARAOH OVERLORD is quite difficult to get into. Their instrumental and psychedelic stoner rock usually comes in long track forms, which together with a minimal progression within compositions may result as a boring and frustrated listening experience. This far I have listened to only three albums; in my opinion this one's clearly better than the heavier Horn, or the three-tracked Siluurikaudella.

'Rodent' (10:43) is more or less built on one riff, but the intensity grows gradually. The brighter sounding 'Palmyra Cali' reminds me of EKTROVERDE, which - just as Pharaoh Ovelord also (and several other acts, not all included in ProgArchives) - is blood-related to CIRCLE, one of the longest living of Finnish prog-minded bands and a household name in Finland's psychedelic field. Of these P. O. is the least suitable to my personal taste, being rather dryly and monotonously guitar dominated. On this album however there's Hans-Joachim Irmler (from the German legend FAUST) on keyboards, making the sound richer and more... cultivated, if you like.

'Cardinal' (4:09) is atypically not a second too long. It is spacey, dreamy, freely flowing (ie. non-rhythmical) music full of ambience. 'Black Horse' starts with a 4˝-minute intro of hectic drumming and improvisational sound making that doesn't in itself seem to be going anywhere, followed by painfully overstretched slice of riff-based stoner rock. Interestingly the problem of getting bored is less present on the massive, nearly a half an hour closing track 'Cave of Hair'. Like 'Cardinal', it is free flowing, and very meditative. Once it takes the listener into a hypnotic state, the question of length becomes irrelevant. Here Irmler's contribution is at its most valuable while also the electric guitars play long spacey notes with a feeling. This is like vintage Kosmische Musik almost at its finest.

Pharaoh Overlord is not going to enter the long list of my regular listening, but I do believe that this particular album has much better chances to raise some interest among new listeners than P. O. music in general.

Remember The Future
Nektar Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Jeff Carney

3 stars The first half of Side 1 of this album is some of the most brilliant rock music I've ever heard. Beautifully constructed chord progressions transition between a heavy-edged approach and soft, dreamy atmospheres. I could listen to it on repeat and be quite content for a long period.

Unfortunately, the second half of Side 1 begins to decline upon the introduction of the "Remember The Future" vocal section. Something about this just screams "cheese," but I fight through it without much trouble and enjoy the sections that finish the album's first movement. After all, it's easy to sit back over forty years later and pass harsh judgment on ideas that may have still been hanging on to some of the psych-tinged aura of the late 60s.

There is an approach to the arranging on this album that feels like ideas are being bled to death, but some of the ideas are so good that one doesn't mind. And the conclusion of Side 1 is an exhilarating ride with mind-numbing guitar. I must also point out that some of the organ work on Side 1 is sublime. Very much musical and understated to work within the context of what is clearly a musical brand which is best dominated by Albrighton's guitar. Specifically, the "Falling down from heaven" chords are beautifully backed by organ work which is breathtaking in its ability to fall back and make an idea better. Truly remarkable work from Allan Freeman.

But Side 2 of this album is a flat out mess. Misguided, funky lounge music is served up which has not aged well at all, because it has no business on this record. A common problem with trying to do too much can be a loss of musical identity. It sounds like Nektar, but it sounds like Nektar trying to play club music and fit it into the context of a heavy progressive rock album. It doesn't really work because it brings the album's sound into a confusing area where the band sound uncertain of their direction. Add to this what is easily the most anti-climactic ending to a prog "epic" I have ever encountered in "Let It Grow" and you have an album which is one of the most confusing of 1973.

Agusa Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars AGUSA is a new band out of Sweden playing mostly instrumental music and they do like to jam bringing to mind FLASKET BRINNER at times. There is a definite Krautrock flavour in a few places and like others have mentioned this is 70's retro music all the way.

"Uti Var Hage" sounds really good once it kicks in well before a minute as the organ floats in the background. A change before 2 minutes as we get vocal melodies, drums and organ leading the way. Check out the bass before 3 minutes then the guitar after 4 minutes which is such a feel-good section. It settles right down 5 minutes in but then it starts to rebuild and it sounds fantastic with some ripping guitar. Pulsating organ after 6 1/2 minutes then we get another calm around 8 minutes in as the organ floats. It kicks back in after 9 1/2 minutes. "Melodi Fran St Knut" is a bright and upbeat tune with organ and drums standing out. The guitar joins in around the 3 minute mark then back to that earlier sound after 4 minutes. A calm follows with guitar then it starts to build again. Love the guitar after 6 minutes.

"Ostan Om Sol, Vastan Om Mane" opens with vocal melodies and atmosphere with picked guitar. This is very Krautrock-like. It kicks into a full sound after 4 minutes. The guitar starts to solo around 7 minutes as we also get some cool drum work. It all slows down with guitar 9 1/2 minutes in before it starts to build once again. "Stigen Genom Skogen" opens with growly organ and determined drums that remind me of Krautrock. Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes then the guitar proceeds to light it up before we get a change a minute later as the tempo picks up. Man the drumming is so good and the organ is really prominant. The guitar is back 5 minutes in and it's just killing it. Back to the earlier soundscape before 6 minutes to end it. "Karlek Fran Agusa" is the short 3 minute closer that reminds me of CAMEL.

This is a pretty cool organ driven project that should impress all you fans of seventies Prog out there.

Oceansize Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by TCat
Prog Reviewer

5 stars Oceansize's 3rd full length album is another amazing journey into some of the best new progressive rock and they continue to be a band that proves that progressive rock is alive and well and still has a lot of territory to explore. Even though it is considered psychedelic/space rock here in the Archives, this album leans more towards the post rock/heavy prog sound. This one is a bit heavier than "Everyone Into Position" was. Oceansize wanted to make an album that didn't have any radio friendly songs on it whatsoever, and that is what they have accomplished. There is less melody than the previous album and a lot more exploration, even though that album was still a masterpiece. But this one is amazing also. Borrowing more from post rock, this takes that genre beyond it's own borders and mostly ignores any rules.

There is definitely a good enough variety here to keep things interesting, but the album is also more structured to a specific sound. Full of complexity, the meters are very difficult technically, yet there is so much emotion in their music as there always is. They definitely accomplish the goals of so many post-rock bands that try to achieve an orchestral sound with rock instruments, especially with dense guitars and long crescendos. Oceansize doesn't always follow that formula here keeping things surprising and fresh throughout. The closest thing to post-rock formulation is "Trial of Fire" which builds into an amazing climax that puts many of those bands to shame. And that orchestral sound is accomplished so well as you get in that symphonic like ending. "Savant" is probably the least interesting track, at least at the start, but it develops as it goes and finally floats into a lush 2nd half that approaches a psychedelic leaning, albeit vaguely as strings enter and give this song a beautiful way to cap itself off.

"Only Twin" is a definite stand out. Extremely complex, yet a softer sound that still holds a lot of tension building, but not in the form of dynamics as much as in atmosphere. I love this track and think it is one of the most original tracks in new progressive rock. Stunningly beautiful, yet not in the way you would expect it to be. When I say it's a softer sound, that is only in comparison with the rest of the tracks that come before it. No, it's not mellow at all, just softer.

The excellent complexity of the album continues through each track. There is only one instrumental on the album which is "An Old Friend of the Christy's" which holds a lot of mood changes and character as any other song on the album. "Sleeping Dogs and Dead Lions" is the shortest track here and it clocks in at over 6 minutes, but it packs a solid punch as it is also the heaviest and loudest song here, with vocals approaching screaming, but never in an obnoxious way, more in an emotional way. The last track "Frames" slacks off in the noise factor a bit, but still carries it's weight. Even though it ends the album in a satisfying way, you need to search out the special edition of this album that has the bonus track "Vorhees" which in itself is over 11 minutes (a bonus track over 11 minutes you say?). There are many that compare Oceansize to Tool, which I don't agree with because they have their own sound, but if there is a track that sound the most similar to Tool, it would be this bonus track, even the crazy dissonant guitar solo that also uses keyboards to push it forward to even more of an extreme. Definitely as great as any of the regular tracks on the album and worth searching for.

It is so hard for me at this point in Oceansize's discography to find an album that is not a masterpiece. Everything they have released up until now has been some of the best progressive rock that I have heard and each album has been amazing. There is never a lack of complexity, excellent dynamism, originality, challenging and genre stretching progressive rock in their music and I continue to recommend this band highly. Consistently excellent and once again, another masterpiece of progressive rock music. 5 solid stars.

Review by Progfan97402

4 stars A tad underrated, I guess that's because Lemmy is gone, but I really think this album is killer! I really don't see what's wrong with this album. Not metallic enough? Robert Calvert rejoined the group, which I thought was a great asset to the band, so long as he didn't get all mental on them. First you start off with "Reefer Madness", an obvious reference to the black and white movie. It's a great opening piece, and I love those synth solos. Then you have "Steppenwolf", which just simply blows me away! This song first appeared, in a much more synth-dominated form on Adrian Wagner's The Distances Between Us (1974) (Calvert wrote the song, Wagner had also appeared on Calvert's solo album Captain Lockheed & the Starfighters). Hawkwind's version is much longer, and the whole song is absolutely killer! "City of Lagoons" is an instrumental piece, with spacy synths and what sounds like a phased Mellotron (since Simon House did use Mellotron on their previous two albums, Warrior on the Edge of Time and Hall of the Mountain Grill). "The Aubergine that Ate Rangoon" is an instrumental synth-dominated number. The only song I thought was mediocre was "Kerb Crawler", it sounded more like a generic rock and roller with female backup vocals. It sounded like Hawkwind going commercial here. But they redeem themselves big time with "Kadu Flyer". It stars off rocking, but towards the end it gets all Eastern with the use of sitar. The last is a moody instrumental "Chronoglide Skyway", which sounds to my ears dominated by phased Mellotron (amongst the phasing, it really sounds like I can detect it's a Mellotron).

Really, this is another wonderful album from Hawkwind, and even "Kerb Crawler" doesn't weaken my opinion of this album. To me, it's just another must-have album from Hawkwind!

Magical Power Mako Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

4 stars The music of Magical Power Mako never crossed my radar until I stumbled across his 1995 album "Lo Pop Diamonds" in my local library (in suburban Buffalo, of all places) and later discovered he was a featured artist in these Archives. That first encounter proved a less than ideal entry into the alternate universe of MPM, elsewhere known as Makoto Kurita when he isn't hiding in his bedroom studio, conjuring his Magical Power.

Thankfully this 1975 effort is something else entirely. And by "something else" I mean an almost uncanny funhouse-mirror reflection of his Western role models: something not uncommon in post- war Japan but elevated here to its creative zenith, where simple translation becomes original mutation. A blind headphone test would leave me convinced I was hearing a long-lost, early '70s Krautrock LP, instead of a home recording by a reclusive Japanese teenager with a tacky fringe haircut and a near-visionary understanding of his own interior cosmos.

The album was recorded over a period of several years, and the music is (literally) all over the map, from backwoods Azerbaijan to rural Switzerland to beyond the Andromeda Galaxy...everywhere, apparently, except his native Japan. But Mako's controls were set mainly for the heart of counterculture Germany. The album opener "Andromeda" reveals a kinship with Manuel Göttsching and ASH RA TEMPEL; the musical caravan of "Silk Road" carries echoes of Michael Karoli and CAN (in its strummed baglama and laser-beam electric guitars); and in "Pink Butch (LaLaLa)" the subtitle conveniently spells out the song's entire lyrical content, breathlessly sung in the style of a narcoleptic Klaus Dinger.

The latter half of the album alternates even more eclectic detours - medieval Normandy in "Majorica Resistance Song"; a child's nursery in "Rock Baby in Meadow" - with pieces of a split interlude titled "Sound 3", divided into five parts but totaling under four-minutes in combined length. Separating the tracks this way only increases the album's overall sense of stylistic dislocation, appropriate for an artist described by psychedelic fanboy and "Japrocksampler" author Julian Cope as a "musical hermit".

After first hearing the skewed tinker-toy electropop of "Lo Pop Diamonds" (worth at least one spin, for the unexpected novelty) I was relieved, and more than a little thrilled, to be reminded that there are still magicians among us, weaving their powerful spells.
