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.

The Story of Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

3 stars A good documentary video (an official one, it seems) done with interviews with David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, Roger Waters, recording engineer Brian Humphries, album cover designer Storm Thorgerson, cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, musician Roy Harper, and other people related with the history of the band and particularly with the making of the "Wish You Were Here" album. It relates the story that I also have read in two books written about the band (one by Miles, and the other by William Ruhlmann) about how hard was for the band to record a new album after the great success of their "The Dark Side of the Moon" album from 1973. They really had hard times trying to top that album or at least to produce an album with the same quality as "The Dark Side...". And while I still think that "The Dark Side..." is a better album, their "Wish You Were Here" album is still a good album . By the time the band was planning to record a new album in 1974 they had some problems to reach an agreement about how to do it. So, with the help of a few musical ideas and with Waters mostly acting like the "main director" the band developed ideas for a new album, which became the "Wish You Were Here" album from 1975. In this video, they said that there were two main themes for the album: one theme was former member of the band Syd Barrett, and the other theme was their growing dislike of the music business and record companies. So, they recorded a tribute song for Barrett, called "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", dividing this musical piece in several different sections which were divided in two main parts (one which started the album and another which closed the album), and putting some other songs between these two main sections of "Shine On...". The songs related to their growing dislike of the music business ("Welcome to the Machine" and "Have a Cigar") were put in the record between those two manin sections of "Shine On...", also including another song, the title song, which was in part also dedicated to Syd but as they said, "it also relates to many other things". They also relate the story about how Syd appeared in the studio (in the video there is a photo about this moment) while they were mixing "Shine On..." and how they could not at first recognize him but when finally they did it it was a shock to them to see Syd when they were working on a song about him.

Well...you have to watch the video to learn about other related stories about this album and about some technical information about how it was recorded. I have to say that it is a good video documentary, but some of the information has been written before in some books about the band and also told in some interviews with some of the members of the band.

Not Now John/The Hero's Return (Part 2)
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Guillermo
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Two songs from the album "The Final Cut", but with some differences in comparison to the album versions, to be released in this single.

The "clean" version of "Not Now John" replaces the use of that "terrible" four letters word which stars with "F" in the phrase "F*** all that " with a more "simple" "Stuff all that" phrase to allow the song to be played without censorship in the radio. I don`t know if this song was played in the radio even with that change, but I can`t remember if it was played in the radio stations in my city. "The Final Cut" album is maybe the only album which was released under the PINK FLOYD`s name which is one of the most forgotten albums by some fans, being really more a solo album from Roger Waters than anything else, But in this song, the heaviest from that album, at least one could listen to David Gilmour sharing lead vocals with Roger Waters, and to some very good guitars by Gilmour plus some very good drums by Nick Mason. The rest of the album songs were sung by Waters alone and despite having some good playing from Gilmour and Mason still sounded more like songs from a Roger Waters`solo album. So, maybe the main reasons to release this song in the "A" side of this single was to give the impression that the band still was a "real" band and that it was the srongest song from that album. Maybe the female backing singers who only appeared in this song from that album were no credited in the back cover of that album to avoid their "shame" of being listened repeating that "terrible word which stars with F" several times during this song. But in this single version they sing along with Gilmour and Waters "Stuff all that" instead. Obviously all the vocals in this single version were edited a bit, or maybe all were re-recorded to change that part of the lyrics to "Stuff all that", and maybe I`m wrong but I also could listen to some mixing differences in comparison to the album`s version.

"The Hero`s Return (Parts 1 and 2)" in this single has an additional final verse which extends the lenght of the song for one more minute. This song is also a good song but again it sounds more like a song from a Roger Waters`s solo album. In this extended version the song sounds very well too.

For collectors and fans only.

Food Brain Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by maryes

2 stars My review to FOOD BRAIN, isn't positive and I go "thicken" the "row" from only 2 stars rate. The reason is simple, in spite of be writing about an early 70's record I don't find none reason for a comparison in relation the great records from that year, as for instance YES "Time and a Word", KING CRIMSOM "Lizard", GENESIS "Trespass", E,L & PALMER "Same", both already masterpieces in the beginning of career from these bands. On the contrary was enough for me listen the first track "That Will Do" a 9 min. 12 sec.for a very simple rock'nroll music with a constant beat and endless and boring keyboard and guitar solo ! The third track "Waltz For M.P.B." is really a jazz-waltz and the only difference between this one and the first is the boring solo is only from the keyboard, but keep the same repetitive rhythm during all the track ! "Crowning" this scenery the last track "The Hole in a Sausage" a long ( 15 min ) track full of noisy passages whose the climax of the "doubtful taste" starts about 8 min 24 sec which a FREDERICH CHOPIN "Funeral March" passage !!! I only don't give for this album the worst classification (Poor. Only for completionists - 1 star ) in respect for the musicians effort ! My rate is ( as I mentioned above) 2 stars !!!

August 1974
Taj-Mahal Travellers Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars TAJ-MAHAL TRAVELLERS formed in Tokyo, Japan back in 1969, while this particular double album was recorded in 1974 but released in 1975. They were a seven piece band with lots of percussion along with harmonica, violin, timpani, synths, double bass, electronics, mandolin, tuba, vocal expressions and trumpet. Despite all the instruments this is a sparse sounding recording with lots of space for the sounds to breathe for the most part. Sounds drone continually yet they somehow keep this interesting. It's hard for me to explain how they keep my attention throughout, but all I know is that I loved this right from the first listen. A big thankyou to Guldbamsen for his review of their debut which caused me to check these guys out. We get four side long tracks all clocking in around the 20 minute mark.

Side A drones in and out with different sounds coming and going throughout. Again I can't really explain the appeal for me other than it is relaxing and it makes me feel good. I do think this band had a gift when it comes to Psychedelic music. You would think the start of Side B was a continuation of Side A until it becomes fuller after a couple of minutes. Check out the vocal expressions around 6 1/2 minutes and 8 minutes in as the mandolin and so much more continues. A calm before 9 minutes that really continues to the end as it becomes dark and at times haunting.

The second album begins with Side C and we get percussion-like sounds to start and it's not long before spacey synths drift in floating over top along with other sounds. The synths stop as it becomes quite sparse with not a lot going on until before 7 minutes when the sound seems to build slowly. Some interesting sounds that we haven't heard yet after 8 minutes that continue to change and evolve the rest of the way. Side D starts slowly with percussion before we get some electric violin and electronics. Sounds eventually echo and without question the violin is featured here more than on any other song. It just doesn't sound like a normal violin and that's pretty cool. Check out the sound before 16 minutes. Nice. This continues for some time then it calms down some with vocal expressions late.

Transcendent is a word that is associated with the music of this band a lot and I have to agree. A lot of German bands like CLUSTER and the like from the early seventies certainly come to mind when I listen to this recording.

Erpsongs
Ozric Tentacles Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by siLLy puPPy

3 stars This band was founded by band leader Ed Wynne, who with his brother Roly Wynne met the other band members of the first line-up of OZRIC TENTACLES at a campfire during the Stonehenge Free Festival in 1983. The band immediately hit it off and performed a jam session on the spot. The members took the hippie vibe of the Grateful Dead and married it with the space rock of Hawkwind and Steve Hillage era Gong and added other influences such as the electronic music of the day. Two years later after becoming a huge hit playing live gigs, the demand for their music meant they needed to have their music available for the hungry fans. Unfortunately by this time a decade after the space rock sound reached its pinnacle, no record label was willing to take on this type of music, thus OZRIC TENTACLES took matters into their own hands and produced their own music and distributed six of their first albums on cassettes only. ERPSONGS is the first of these albums and shows how the band had a clear vision of what they wanted to sound like from the beginning.

As a fan of the 90s albums, it is very interesting to go back and check out these earlier ones. This debut album has that organic homemade feel to it and offers upbeat guitar riffs with spaced out trippy synths and a nice groovy bass. There is dub and lots of sound effects and is actually pretty impressive for a do-it-yourself project in the early 80s. I find this a decent listen but at this stage the band's more progressive tendencies hadn't quite blossomed yet. Their sound is very much in its infancy and it lacks the strange time signature and heaps of extra instruments that they would become famous for. The psytrtrance and ambient features are here but not as sophisticated as the albums beginning with their first fully developed album "Pungent Effulgent." However, despite not being the most intricate or developed of their releases, this is a fun little album that has a nice feel to it. ERPSONGS and the other five cassette-only albums have been released on CD and remastered and can all be found together in the recently re-issued box set "Vitamin Enhanced." 3.5 rounded down

Nimbus Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars The CD release of this Finnish prog rarity finally came out last year, very deservedly. After reading the few lines written here about NIMBUS, I had no big expectations of it musically, but it wasn't bad at all. Clearly better than I expected. The CD leaflet also gives a lot of information of the band and its history, but in Finnish only... Nimbus, originally called Mafia, caught the interest of TASAVALLAN PRESIDENTTI bassist and Love Records producer Måns Groundstroem in 1972, and they made a 10-hour studio session in March 1973, but the session more or less failed. Later Love Records had no time for this minor band from Salo. Demos were succesfully sent to the small, non-prog-oriented label Satsanga Records (the one that later released also HAIKARA's controversial Iso Lintu album). The Finnish-language album Obus was recorded in just three days - and had no much marketing.

Nimbus' music is pure vintage-sounding Finnish prog/psychedelia of the early seventies, though surely not in the high level of TP or Wigwam, and featuring less of jazziness or eclectism. The circumstances weren't very favourable, and despite some warm reception among critics and especially the home area, Nimbus were destined to stay in the margin and to wither away within two years. I believe with the support of Love Records they would have reached much further.

'Ennustus' (= Omen) is a deeply atmospheric and psychedelic song with speech-approaching vocals. On this and some other tracks the keyboard player Pekka Rautio's brother Matti adds his violin to a great effect. The complex melodies and time signatures are even more fascinating in the next song. The band's warm sound with plenty of organ and electric guitar is really nice, and the vocals of Pasi Saarelma are pleasant, comparable to the sentimental vocals of British SPRING (or a cross between Finnish singers Kirka and Petri Pettersson).

Unfortunately the album is only about 33 minutes, and the six songs are quite similar on the long run. They all sound pretty good, but the song-writing - which lacks strong melodies and really memorable highlights - starts to lose its power during the album. The composer is the guitarist Harri Suilamo except for the final song 'Yksinäinen purjehtija' (= Solitary yachtsman) which is written by Pekka Rautio. It's perhaps slightly brighter and livelier in mood.

The CD features two bonus tracks originating from a TV broadcast in January 1974, both written by Suilamo. 'Myrskyjen välillä' (= Between storms) is an average song in the same style, but 'Aamumaa' (= Morning land) is among the best ones. It's a small mystery why it was decided to be left out of the album. The sound quality is a bit poorer on these bonuses, but they are a valuable addition. 3½ stars for the well-done, informative CD edition! On a national scale it could be rounded to four, but internationally three will do.

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars 3½ stars really.

The lastest album by the Finnish masters of instrumental Space Rock is bursting with energy, and the cover art indeed suits the music very well. The opener 'Ad Astra' starts with a massive- sounding intro riff and continues in the familiar OZRIC TENTACLES -reminding trippy heights. Their sound is however harder rocking than Ozrics, with a stronger rhythm section and louder guitars. The momentarily calmer part somewhere around the sixth minute comes very handy in order to make the music feel less monotonous speeding ahead in one determined direction.

'Cycloops' is similarily mostly in high tempo with some brief slow-downs. As if the intergalactic bus is changing its passengers along the way. I continue this image of mine for the final minutes: "This is your captain speaking. There's an asteroid rain ahead and we have to use an extra protection shield." Or maybe that's not so fitting image after all, since there's no majestic arrival in the end.

It's quite strange to see a Space Rock piece titled as 'Badding', which is the nickname of a bygone popular singer (mainly of the seventies, but his certain worn-out hits are still heavily played in the radio... You guess it, I really don't like Rauli "Badding" Somerjoki!). I fail to see a logical connection in the music. Anyway, this longest track (12:20) starts promisingly with jazzy flavours of electric piano and vibes / xylosynth. Also the bright guitar sound can be spotted at first, but later on the soundwall gets thicker. The vibes - or whatever - remain there nicely. In the halfway there's again a calmer moment, this time slightly longer and with delicate New Age -synths, but the return to the HAWKWIND-reminding normal (fast) speed nearly becomes monotonous by now.

Equally fast piece 'Endymion' (5:55 - the shortest one) has bitingly riffing guitars and the hectic, bubbling trippiness in the OZRIC style. 'Seirenes' (11:15) continues the album's overall mood without notable changes, that is, hectic, trippy and rather thick soundwall, with those familiar slower moments along the way.

I haven't yet listened to the whole HIDRIA output in order to evaluate Astronautica against it, but I have a feeling that in the earlier years there were more fresh and jazzy details in the playing. For example the flute is sadly missing here altogether. This album offers A class Space Rock on an international scale and is technically very solid, but maybe the sidesteps away from the usual formula are too scarce on the long run. Wider differences between tracks would give the album that final big enjoyment. I believe this won't become my favourite album by this band, but it's worth recommending nevertheless.

Carré.Ladich.Marchal Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Rare Prog album with a strong political background, issued in Italy.Singer/lyricist Olivier Carre and multi-instrumentalist Jack Marchal were both attached to the right-wing parties of France and they always had the idea of writing down some music, as they had known each other for quite some time.They asked the help of Janus's drummer Mario Ladich, working for a band with clear right-wing tendencies.Ladich had also his own rehearsing studio and the album was recorded in just two days during September 79' in Rome, released independently by the trio.

Even if this one was issued in Italy, ''Science & violence'' is totally sung in French by Carre and recalls the early roots of PINK FLOYD as well as some of the best French Prog bands of the 70's.The material is pretty original, combining the psychedelic influences with theatrical lyrics, rockin' grooves and some soaring keyboards in a charming package.Some of its parts resemble to PULSAR with spacey synthesizers, crying guitars and French narration, others are more raw and outdated with scratching electric riffs meeting lyrical acoustic textures.But there are also some evident ANGE hints in the album, the material of the flipside sounds like if pre-72' ANGE existed, characterized by soft electric moves and over-the-top singing lines, surrounded by mellow keyboard themes, building a slight psychedelic atmosphere, which will eventually explode into lovely, melodic soloing with a discreet symphonic base.There are also sporadic, harder runs with the guitars in evidence and an electrified atmosphere.

Marchal apparently prepared himself for a sophomore release, which was never issued, but a couple of tracks made it to the album's 97' reissue on Cosmorecord with irritating titles like ''Les Nazis font des betises''.The style has nothing to do with the sound on ''Science & violence'', this is Synth/New Wave music with synthetic beats and colorless vocals, extremerly monotonous and boring.

Ladich continued his career as a member of Janus, but Carre died prematurely in a motorcycle accident in 1994, in which Marchal was also involved.

Genuine Progressive Rock, mainly composed by the talented man named Jack Marchal.Quite close to a more energetic PULSAR with strong psychedelic and light symphonic underlines.Pretty rare yet warmly recommended stuff.

See Emily Play
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by memowakeman
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

2 stars A representative single album.

It is not a secret that I love Pink Floyd, that since I knew the progressive rock genre, I adopted them as my favourite band, and I've loved them ever since I discovered them. But my experience with the Barrett era came at least one year after I first listened to The Wall or Darkside, so it was a new concept to me, a psychedelic, crazier and more acid sound, which I will not lie, is not my favourite Pink Floyd phase, though I also like it a lot.

"See Emily Play" is a wonderful composition that remains in everyone's mind, this is like a hymn, like a precious piece of art for the devoted fans, and thought some might say its quality is way lower than songs such as "Echoes" or "Dogs", this piece has its own charm. A 3-minute psychedelic track with excellent keyboards working as background, while Syd's voice appears like a punch following the fast drums rhythm and the excellent interaction between guitar and bass. What a great song they did.

And to complete a pair, "Scarecrow" was included in this single album. This is a 2-minute song which is nice but not the best. Totally Barrett-esque of course, it is like a fairy tale with acid inside, so go figure.

This single is truly appreciated by fans and critics, so if for some strange reason you find a copy of it, do not hesitate and buy it.

I like it, mostly for Emily... but you know me, I rate singles or albums with less than 20 minutes length with 1 or 2 stars. This time I'll go for the latter.

Enjoy it!

The Spacious Mind Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Guldbamsen
Forum & Site Admin Group Site and Forum Admin

3 stars The Navajo Soundtrack Of Sweden

Continuing their sombre and, at times, sinister vibe of their previous album 'Rotvälta', Swedish space rockers The Spacious Mind seem to dive even deeper into the black pool with 'Tonen'. Released a year later, the album consists of two long installations simply called part one and two. Listened to in their entirety on cd, the audience will have a hard time pinpointing the exact moment the waters shift as the music comes across as one brooding piece.

The very start of the album tips it's hat to the preceding release with those same Navajo rhythms, sounding like dry rattlesnake scales being shaken up inside a wasp's nest. It adds a raw and caveman feel to the proceedings, and when coupled together with the sluggish tempo of the guitars, the overall sonic impression is that of deep hypnotic atmospheres with the touch of an old Indian's heart.

Whereas 'Rotvälta' slowly but surely moved towards a rocking catharsis, that at the very end of the record seemed to cleanse the mystic and enigmatic irresolution of faux Navajo rhythms and howling guitar effects, on 'Tonen' something else stands in it's place. The catharsis is still there albeit in the form of a heartfelt and shimmering organ that suddenly injects itself a little over halfway into the second piece. Prior to this monumental moment of release, the music trots around in a hazy existence with wind-like guitar effects and a build up effect akin to a psychedelic take on Godspeed You! Black Emperor. This organ driven moment of release is just about as beautiful as a waterfall of sapphires, and the way it wraps it's lips around the somewhat unfriendly nature of it's surroundings is damn near a stroke of genius.

The downside to this album is that it can feel very long. 46 minutes of slowly unravelling music that only once in a while shows signs of progression. During the first side though maxing out somewhere over the stratosphere with a lightning bolt of cacophony, where drums and guitars run amok and create a blistering unmelodic jolt of noise and racket......yet that's about all you get from the rock palette. Everything else feels like a brooding gel of experimental bits that I personally get a kick out of, but I have to be in the mood for it. It's not an album you can throw on the stereo any time of the day and be bewildered in that oh so magical way. I can't imagine cooking dinner with it playing in the back - likewise do I sense a distinct difficulty in spinning this during some adult gymnastics - that is unless you've bagged one of those urban witches that spend most of their time barefooted at raves dancing like an ecstatic medicine man.

It worked just now though. I was engulfed by sunlight out on the patio with a clear view of dozens of bumblebees flying around like the drunk teddybears they really are. The music was deeply engaging and made me sweat even more than the white stinging rays, and after surrendering myself completely to the warm haze of the Indian ways - the lingering guitar winds and rattlesnake jitters - suddenly the organ jumped in and literally threw me thousands of feet in the air, with goosebumps ablazing and an orgasmic look on my face. 3.5 stars.
