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.

Painted Mantra
Mushroom Giant Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Finnforest
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
4 stars An epic instrumental journey

From the land of our own dear Aussie Byrd comes Melbourne's amazing Mushroom Giant. Their roots go back to about 2002 and this is their third full-length release. Their live shows are very well received as they attempt to marry aural with the visual presentations that enhances the themes of their music.

Mushroom Giant are an entirely (currently) instrumental rock experience and what a journey this album is. My best description might be to start with Djam Karet level jamming, but with a bit more post-rock/metal feel than just space-psych. There are also similarities to popular favorites. If you are one of those prog fans who are always looking for that mystical missing link band that is a cross of Floydian landscapes with Rush-like power, this might be just the band you've been searching for. A dual-guitar attack joins keyboards and a powerful rhythm section, balancing technical virtuosity with emotion, and sending both to the edge of instrumental rock imagination without crossing into avant or dissonant realms. It is imaginative but it maintains accessibility as well. They move effortlessly from the serene and subtle to the heavy and epic allowing one to be absorbed, listening can become something more than just song, song, song. This is one of those albums that can be like a prog-rock fan's version of a rave, except rather than dance beats you have something much more winding and not repetitive, but still with a trance-like effect. Generally the sound is a powerful rock but they also employ Hammond and Rhodes as great contrasting sounds, as well as some ambient sounds. The 14 minute "Scars of the Interior" is a good starting track to get a summary taste of what Mushroom Giant does.

"They've always been a band with a talent for creating epic, cinematic soundscapes, but with "Painted Mantra" Mushroom Giant have taken it a step further. The sheer scope of the album is incredible. This isn't a record you can just drop in and out of at random. It's an experience, an hour-long voyage through a spectral brew of prog, post-rock, metal and Eastern-influenced rock. And they manage to do it all without vocals..." -WAYNE MARSHALL - Beat Magazine

You can sample or buy "Painted Mantra" on Bandcamp by clicking the band page link on their front PA artist page. It will definitely make my end of year list.

Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Second Life Syndrome
Collaborator Post/Math Rock and Crossover Teams

4 stars Hm...Pink Floyd released a new album? That sounds like a dream I had. In fact, I did have a dream like that a few months before they announced the new album called "The Endless River". Floyd, needing no introduction, is the epitome of classic rock and even prog, for some of us. They have a sound that never gets old, truly. How does their first album in 20 years fare, however? Can these old geezers pull one more trick out of their bag?

Yes. Yes, they can. With Richard Wright's death a few years ago, one would have expected nothing further from the great Floyd. Yet, Gilmour and Mason gave it a go. Maybe they were paid a bunch of cash by a desperate label. Maybe they truly wanted to make a bookend to their legendary career. Or, just maybe, they wanted to pay tribute to their dear friend. After hearing "The Endless River", I have to go with the latter. This swan song for Pink Floyd is also a beautiful, ethereal tribute to Wright, possibly the most important part of the band, really.

And it's instrumental, save the final track. To me, that takes balls. If Floyd really wanted to cash in, they would have written songs close to "Money" or, perhaps, "Another Brick in the Wall". But they didn't. They pieced together keyboards written and played by Wright, and wrote some great pieces to make a giant puzzle that fits together very well. It flows so well, and emotes so well, too. The feelings of hope and unity for humanity are no mistake here.

Indeed, "The Endless River" is a beautiful, ambient album that I am so glad was released. It isn't "Wish You Were Here". It isn't even "A Momentary Lapse of Reason". It is, however, a fitting end to a great legend. Do I miss the vocals? Sure. Do I think it will be a legendary album? Not really. Is it worth hearing, sharing, and even owning? Absolutely.

Be Good To Yourself At Least Once A Day
Man Psychedelic/Space Rock

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

4 stars Heavy Welsh jam band Man have always been difficult to categorise, playing a mix of country rock and blues with psychedelic and adventurous rock passages, with slight spacerock and even Krautrock flavours worked in as well. By the time of this LP, "Be Good to Yourself At Least Once A Day", their fifth studio album in 1972, the band were really starting to fire on all cylinders. Honing their skills over their numerous live shows and four previous albums saw them find a better balance of all the above mentioned different styles here, and it's one of their most consistent releases from their vintage Seventies recordings.

"C'Mon" is a punchy call-to-arms opener, with plenty of positive and sunny vibes throughout. The relentless rocker is bookended with slippery bass, warm harmonies and singing slide guitar, but the real highlight is the a slow-build, impossibly beautiful shimmering low-key spacey rumination in the middle. Glistening Hammond organ ripples and electric piano float in space, chiming guitars and wavering electronics drift over sighing wordless harmonies in the manner of Nektar, before ending on a light driving guitar jam and a brief punchy symphonic prog burst. `Keep on Criting' is a sprightly upbeat and instantly likeable instrumental. Drowsy and toasty warm bubbling Moog, electric piano fingertips and whirring Hammond remind of the upbeat Greenslade instrumentals, with a fuzz organ solo in the middle instantly calling to mind Caravan. The guitar is gentle country licks to begin, then thick and snarling in the middle, and heavy psychedelic twin guitars duel on either side of the speakers trying to snake their way to the heavens in the finale.

The flipside holds the colourful and playful groover "Bananas." A total psychedelic rocker, at first it's warped with nonsense lyrics such as "I like to eats bananas, 'cos they have no bones, I like marijuana, 'cos it gets me stoned", which certainly raises a smile! The piece quickly diverts into dreamy levitating preciousness, as chiming guitars dazzle, whizzing spacy Hammond glides all around and an optimistic dreamy vocal wafts by. The electric guitar soloing that races through the final minutes is constantly joyous, lifted into the air by electric piano and fluid bass to end on positive vibes. Closer `Life on the Road' is an Americana-infused shuffling boogie, driven by nimble piano and slow-burn electric guitar fire. It may be more straight-forward than the rest of the disc, but it's easy to wind down to, exceptionally well-played and ample proof of the skills of the band.

Some Man albums can be a bit hit and miss, but `Be Good..' is one of their strongest works from their initial run of Seventies albums. There's no shortage of varied rock elements and psychedelic touches delivered here, and they've also offered plenty of blues/country elements as well, so many types of listeners should find something to appeal to them. Well played with high-quality material, "Be Good to Yourself At Least Once A Day" is one of Man's defining releases, and it makes for the ideal introduction for newcomers to the band to explore.

Four stars.

Review by Xenodimensional

4 stars Pink Floyd. Where to start? Without Pink Floyd I probably would not be here for starters. Having grown up in a household that loved Pink Floyd I have been familiar with them for my entire life. I took them on as a band that I 'liked' at age 14 which coincided with the release of their last studio album 'The Division Bell' (TDB). At that time I liked TDB for what it was however I have a tendency towards liking their earlier experimental output and consigned TDB to the back of the CD rack relatively quickly and considered that PF were probably done and dusted.

Fast forward 20 years and while I was initially very intrigued about the prospect of a new Floyd album two decades after their last studio release I became somewhat more apprehensive when I heard that it would be a mostly instrumental affair. I am an avid listener of instrumental music however PF seemed to me to be a good example of a band that added value to their music through their vocals and (at times) thought provoking lyrics.

Within minutes of The Endless River's (TER) debut listening however my fears were cast aside as I realised that while Floyd had explored a number of instrumental songs throughout their career they had never released an album of primarily instrumental music and that in their own unique way had found an avenue for retaining their trademark of producing albums that often had little in common with their predecessors.

Musically the album is rich with textural diversity and instrumental interplay and features many sections remniscent of songs from their own catalogue (Set the Controls, Shine On, Us and Them, Learning to Fly etc.) which rather than sounding like a rehashed medley or lessening their own legacy adds a mature perspective to the nuanced performances they were capable of at the time of the recording. Rick Wright's performances are as expected beautifully poignant and the album serves as a great testimony to all that he achieved. Special mention goes to Nick Mason who delivers some great dynamics through his playing which help push some of the pieces to greater heights than they otherwise would have reached.

Admittedly TER does in some ways resemble a series of musical 'sketches' although considering the circumstances that this album arose under one can but only appreciate the quality of the recording and the performances within it. As far as posthumous musical releases are concerned TER is almost peerless. As lovely as it would have been for these songs to have been worked into more cohesive and longer compositions I am still exceedingly grateful that they (well David Gilmour) have chosen to let the material see the light of day and secretly hope that there might be another disc or two of similar material.

Rating this album is a reasonably straightforward process. TER doesn't reach the heights of albums such as Atom Heart Mother, Meddle, WYWH, DSOTM or Animals which for me are solid five star albums. I also feel that TER has more to offer than two and three star albums such as The Final Cut, Momentary Lapse and the Division Bell so I feel that it is due four stars; it truly is an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.

4 stars A new Pink Floyd album, hmmm go figure! So what can possibly motivate legendary millionaire golden-agers to record and publish a new work which will undoubtedly span the entire spectrum of comments from both prog fans as well as the entire music universe? Millions will love it, million others will hate it and all the Oreo cream commentary in between will be well documented online. Well, it ain't "Money" (sic!) , that is for sure, as the PF gents probably own Fort Knox by now. Do they need to prove some point, like the fine wine aging thingy? Nope. What motivates them is much more typically Floyd, both complex and simple, lubed with ongoing triple decade-old rivalry between Waters and the rest, as well as the passing of the silent genius Rick Wright. Truth is Waters is an insufferable, miserable, bigoted and egotistical megalomaniac, a genuinely inventive artist who prefers to rub people the wrong way, just for the fun of it. Because he can! Not my kind of idol (sorry Roger fans!). The ongoing epic epee dueling between him and the others is farcical and solidly deliberate, the typical Hollywood style barbs just to stay in the press and be spoken of. Gilmour and Mason always seemed to get along with the quiet and modest Wright, and maintained their 40 year-old legacy of remembering with fond affection former band mates. Needless to say, they kept the name Syd Barrett alive not only in direct words but also in songs that we all know and love.

So instead of a useless blow by blow (hi Jeff!) account, surely better exemplified by the more creative Floyd fanatics who actually know how to write (Wright?), I prefer to look at all the below radar snipping that encompasses this innuendo-laden work. I suspect that among the numerous targets of dissension between Dave and Roger, one could not help noticing the 'I sing better than you' equation, so by being a mostly all- instrumental album, with a finale-only vocal, it seems to me to be a pretty very overt FY, proven by one title named "Unsung". Secondly, the song designations also hint at a difference of opinion, with titles like "It's What We Do". "Things Left Unsaid", "Lost Art of Conversation", "Louder than Words", need I continue, no, you get the message, just Breathe! In 2005, Waters pushes out a three part opera record with a French title called "Ca Ira" (It will go okay) , so the 'enemy' records a subtle two-part piece called "Allons-y" (Let's go!). C'mon, ???. It's hilarious, snide, mischievous sniping of the very highest order! There are also winks at the very early years ,in 1968 ("Autumn '68") they recorded a tune called "Let There be More Light" , so why not write (wright) a 2014 piece called "Night Light"? Sorry but as Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau would say "There is euh stinky fiche in my rhume" and there are no "Pros and cons of Hitchhiking" here, the facts are plain to see.

Gilmour's ongoing solid friendship with Roxy Music legend Phil Manzanera has resulted in a relationship polar opposite to Waters, two master guitarists who appreciate their different styles to the point of total respect and have nothing to prove other than make music that they enjoy. Phil's influence remains firmly grounded in the swooning instrumental stylistics, especially on the incredible 2 part "Allons-y" suite, sandwiched between a Wakeman-esque church organ piece (Autumn 68). This is sublime music that needs to be applauded for its courage of convictions, their dedication to both Barrett and Wright. I just wonder what kind of tribute they will create for Waters when he settles below his 6 foot deep WALL. I hope it's like Lou Reed's nasty "Metal Machine Music", an hour's worth of middle finger proudly raised industrial noise. By enlisting Israeli sax player Gilad Atzmon, there is surely no correlation with Waters' recent venom spewing at Israel (urging cancellation of concerts there, how dumb is that?). Nah, all this is coincidence, purely luck, happenstance and roll of the dice. Yeah, Wright!!!!!!

I suspect the boys would have enjoyed calling this "The Endless River of BS" but censors everywhere would have objected, subjected as they are to Godoogle. Gilmour and Mason are sitting in their armchairs, warming their bones beside the fire, while Wright is up in heaven doing the Great Gig in the Sky and playing "Us and Him". You might think I have gone fishing in some desert oasis and speculate on libelous likelihoods but my instincts tell me (being a divorcee, you sense stuff like this) that the bitterness is way deeper than anyone thinks, it's not just artistic, it's a character thing that goes back to the very early days and elevated to breaking point with Waters' 1983 masterpiece 'The Final Cut". Not only is there no love lost but even the hate is gone! It's become an epidermis (that skin deep in Latin) hatred that will never be overcome.

I can do that innuendo thingy allegedly but Pink Floyd can add a soundtrack to it, something I am very envious of.

Expected brilliant artwork, packaging (i got the CD/DVD package) and impossible sound!

Review by Einwahn

5 stars I recently reviewed Opeth's Pale Communion, and mentioned that it had achieved the unusual feat, for a prog album, of a top 20 chart position in my country. Well, of course, here we have an exceptional band whose (very) prog album has gone to #1 in 20 countries. Will its consumers feel rewarded? I hope so, overall, though reaction in the band's heartland on Prog Archives seems to be mixed. Pink Floyd have been a multifaceted band, and to enjoy this album you specifically need to be appreciative of the lush and drifting psychedelic textures of 'Echoes' or 'Shine On...'. Personally, I LOVE it!! For years, I have felt that an album of instrumental improvisation by Gilmour and Wright would be an absolute dream, and here it has come true. Gilmour's solo 'On An Island' was quite a disappointment to me, filled with short and rather uninteresting attempts at melody. On the other hand, I thought the rich and powerful 'The Division Bell' was a great album - but if 'The Endless River' is really founded on outtakes from that album then I see a missed opportunity. If only they had created longer tracks with this kind of material, TDB could have been incredible. But that's just me. What an enigmatic title for this album, by the way, because its context is just the opposite - the end for a band after the passing away of a wonderful member.

Verdict: heaven.

La Chambre Nuptiale
Michel Madore Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Progfan97402

4 stars I am really glad to discover Michel Madore. Just like Dionne-Brégent, Madore released two drastically different albums that if you like one album, you might not like the other. In the case of Dionne-Brégent, if you like the avant garde leaning Et le Troisičme Jour, you might not like the more conventional, proggy sounding Deux, or the other way around. Same goes for Michel Madore, if you like his proggy Le Komuso ŕ Cordes, you might not like his rather experimental electronic La Chambre Nuptiale. I have to say Le Komuso ŕ Cordes just simply blew me away. Quebec isn't exactly a bastion of Gong-styled prog, but he does, actually, the music is more in the Clearlight or Carpe Diem vein, given it has a much more serious tone, no Pot Head Pixies.

In 1978 his followup La Chambre Nuptiale appeared on the Kebec-Disc label in Canada (1979 was the year it was released in France, on the EGG label). This album was recorded between June 1975 and March 1978, meaning parts of this album was recorded during the same period as Le Komuso ŕ Cordes. In 1976 a lady named Francine Larivée premiered an exhibit called La Chambre Nuptiale at the opening of the Complexe Desjardins (mixed use shopping mall and office buildings) in Montreal. Michel Madore recorded this album as an inspiration by that exhibit (as far as I can tell), and in fact she provides liner notes on the LP (the Canadian pressing is inside the gatefold, the French pressing is on the back as the French pressing never came with a gatefold). The music has a drastically different approach. In fact, this is firmly in the progressive electronic vein. Unlike Le Komuso ŕ Cordes, there is no outside help, all instruments are performed by Michel Madore, so out goes the prog rock approach, for a more forbidding progressive electronic approach (this kind of music was perfect for the EGG label, no wonder it was released there). The music is nowhere as accessible, and the music is frequently dark and sinister. Check out that droning Elka Rhapsody that opens up "Le Couloir des Anges qui Passant", not to mention the crying baby that also starts this piece. Later on are ladies laughing, although it sounds like a bunch of suburban housewives laughing, this laughing takes on a much more ominous feel amongst the music. Lots of spacy synth effects are to be found. It's like Klaus Schulze trying on Tangerine Dream's Zeit. Check out "Dialogue". It's all played on pipe organ, but played in a manner you expect from progressive electronic. It has a sinister vibe going on, and played in a way you swear it was a synth, but I give it a close listen and no synths are used. Then you have "La Chambre, Une Vision...", taking Felix Mendelssohn's "The Wedding March" and giving it an electronic treatment. Many people seriously dislike this part, and it's understandable, given how overplayed to death this song is used during weddings. It doesn't bother me, given how Madore give it a more galactic vibe, and the fact "La Chambre Nuptial" translates as "The Wedding Chamber". Here I keep thinking it should have been used during a wedding scene on Battlestar Galactica (I mean the original 1978-1979 series, not the recent one). But after the wedding bells chime, it gets back to Michel Madore's original works, more spacy droning synths, although there's a short acoustic guitar passage that give you a small glimpse what his previous album was like. This album is not for the faint of heart. If your prefer your electronic music on the mainstream end of things like Jean Michel Jarre (although even Jarre has his ominous moments, plenty of Oxygene and Equinox has that ominous feel) this might scare you off. I thought Dionne-Brégent's Et le Troisičme Jour was scary, La Chambre Nuptiale rivals it!

So, like the two Dionne-Brégent albums, this comes down to a matter a taste. I personally love both of Michel Madore's works, just like I do both of Dionne-Brégent's work. Fans of progressive electronic, especially the kind that don't play it safe, would sure enjoy this, despite the presence of Mendelsson that briefly starts up side two. Too bad none of Michel Madore's albums have ever been reissued, they're certainly begging for reissues. I'm also glad I own a turntable.

Make Believe It Real
Spirits Burning Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

— First review of this album —
3 stars 'Make Believe It Real' is another SPIRITS BURNING co-production where Bridget Wishart plays an important role according to lyrics and music - a singer/songwriter artist working in partnership with Don Falcone since 2003. Yet again just about a million freelance collaborators or so are involved in the recordings. Many familiar names are deriving from the widespread Hawkwind family hereby. To bring such an amount of musicians together for the recordings would mean to achieve the impossible, hence cultivating this sort of approach in developing music - which is Don's job most likely - requires another strategy of course.

CD1 features eleven new compositions, where the second disc comprises remixes and songs that were previously available on compilations only. Generally speaken this is more dedicated to spend a relaxed one and a half hour. Apart from the synths maybe, a space rock component decreases here to the benefit of ambient, folk, jazz and lounge associated moments. Accordingly Bridget is not acting like a standard rock singer, her voice is rather charming, more ethereal, restrained, not pushing at all. Also, well-known for being in control of a EWI synthesizer she's contributing a lot here while generating diverse wind instruments. On top of it the cover artwork is developed by her too.

Technically seen this is flawless, as everything what is worked out by Don's hands music-wise, no doubt. A lot of details are to recognize again. And the album is far from being overproduced, regarding such a bunch of different contributors. However the compostions can't seduce me all the way through. The extended fok/chamber drenched Reflections suite for example can't touch my soul, probably designated as the album's centerpiece and certainly produced with heart and mind. A matter of taste of course. On the other hand, featuring Alan Davey's (bass) and Jay Tausig's (guitar) ambitious share, I like the powerful Eternal Energy that much.

Luckily the bonus tracks on CD2 are considerably improving the whole production, starting with the space rock genre typical Always. Or just following the wonderful triphop flavoured Iceflow which comes Lunar Dunes reminiscent. And finally Chain Of Thought evolves to another captivating exemplar. This album may find some fans, especially those who are oriented at Bridget's appeal of course. Anway, I would prefer other SPIRITS BURNING productions though. Apart from that - and this will round up my rating in the end.- for me it's still awe-inspiring to observe how this collective is realizing the process of developing music.

The Endless River
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by poslednijat_colobar
Prog Reviewer

5 stars The missing album

What a breath-taking Pink Floyd album! In fact, I've been waiting for that album all the time. It's true example of the missing link in Pink Floyd's creativity. The mighty englishmen's electronic and instrumental reputation is highly renowned, but intended or not, they have not produced exactly that kind of album so far. And the time for final goodbye has come... David Gilmour and Nick Mason, with recordings from Richard Wright, have approved their electronic and instrumental reputation once more, but this time focused on the whole record CD. The incredible Pink Floyd sound makes the record much more typical Pinkfloydish, than quite many other albums of their. Typical space rock sound from 1971-1975 returns for good. The Endless River is a balanced album of non-leader shape, in terms of songwriting and musicianship, what we haven't seen since 1975's Wish You Were Here. The music is what some fans dreamed of so long - instrumental electronic space progressive rock! Great epilogue of Pink Floyd's career and mightest release since Wish You Were Here!

Deep Space Destructors Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Lear'sFool

5 stars Deep Space Destructors are a Finnish space rock band with a few good tunes to share. This second outing is a wonderful trip through a take on space indebted to 35007 and some of the mores of classic rock, with singing reminiscent of Alice in Chains, only often leaning towards sounding like the vocals of a doom metal band. "Beneath The Black Star" starts off by nicely showing off their unique take on this group of influences, with a willingness to go from mellow and even atmospheric to somewhat darker and harder riffs. Each track hence then mixes up the style at least a bit, with "Spacy Phantasy" eschewing their mellow side, and the concluding track, "Sykli", leaving behind their usual English lyrics to break out their native Finnish. All in all an excellent album, with the band putting out great work early in their career. Recommended.
