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.

Astronautica
Hidria Spacefolk Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars 3˝ 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.

Parapsykosis
Dasputnik Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars Turku, the former capital of Finland, has its own scene of marginal / alternative rock scene, or prog scene, if you like, with bands such as Kosmos, Viima and the newcomer Sisare. When it comes to the Finnish Psychedelic / Space Rock, Helsinki and Pori are the leading towns, but cleverly named DASPUTNIK comes from Turku. The quintet plays guitars, saxophones, keyboards, bass and drums. Parapsykosis is the first one of the two albums this far.

'Hzz' (10:31) is HAWKWIND-reminding, riff-based space rock that speeds forward like asteam train. Before the halfway there's a bit slower section with sinister distorted mumble, and later comes further occasional changes in the scenery (ie. tempo and atmosphere), at times rather jazzy. The second track is as hectic. Guitars operate mostly in the low ground with the attacking rhythm section, while flowing, impravisational melodies are primarily played by (soprano) sax. Synths hover in between, often with a Theremin-like sound.

'Tigerbalm', which starts with an acoustic guitar, is in slightly calmer tempo but the tension is there nevertheless. I like this atmospheric track where all instruments are equally audible, but the reappearance of the distorted mumble is only a nuisance for my ears. The next two tracks are the shortest - approximately three minutes each - and they don't bring any new ingredients to the soup. On the home sofa this music perhaps gets too monotonic, but I'm sure seeing this energetic band live would be a deeply impressive experience.

'Space of India' (11:22) is aptly named as it has some Oriental nuances. Occasionally it sounds as if there was a sitar and other Indian instruments, but at least they are not listed. All in all, Dasputnik are pretty good at what they do, which may be a bit narrow-minded on the long run. Cover art by Laura Andersson is cool! And by the way female is also the band member who would be my choice of their trade mark factor: Sini the saxophonist.

After Syd Barrett was asked to leave during the process of recording 'A Saucerful Of Secrets' the band was left in an awkward position of losing one of its key members of their psychedelic phase in the early years. They opted to carry on without him but had a bit of a transitional process along the way before they would get to the new era that blossomed in the 70s. This soundtrack is one of those quirky outings on their way to super-stardom. This album has always been a mystery as to why I like it so much. When you take any single track on here and isolate it the impression is lessened than when the album is played in full. There are plenty of psychedelic references to the previous album's title track, some simple rockers, blues and even a short Spanish guitar piece. For me the magic lies in the flow from one track to another and the mood the whole thing strings together as it progresses.

I have never seen the movie but there are two songs that can be heard in the film that were not included on the album: "Seabirds" and "Hollywood.' For this reason alone I might have to take the plunge and check this flick out no matter how bad it is. I've seen some pretty horrific films in my days and haven't been scarred for life by any (well.... Bride Of Chucky might be the exception). One of the strangest things about this album is that you will hear the FLOYD rock out like they never had and never would again on tracks like 'Nile Song.' Overall I find myself enjoying this every time I drop in and press play. I guess I like the avant feel to the whole thing and the transitional uncertainties that come out in it. However despite liking this album I don't listen to it often. I really should listen to it MORE.

Papir Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by EMLonergan

4 stars This is what I expect from good space rock jams. Papir has been developing a style throughout their last albums, and while having discovered a winning formula in 'Stundum', they have polished their sound by perfecting their tightness; the musicians are very in tune with each other and have found a beautiful consilience. The jams are very atmospheric, extended, and develops slowly, in contrast to the highly concretely delineated song structure that is found in most progressive rock. This album is packed full of psychedelic color and has some great moments that are highly reminiscent of CAUSA SUI and to some extent MY BROTHER THE WIND. This is perfect music to just put on, sit back, relax and let your consciousness float up peacefully into the cosmos.

Atom Heart Mother
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by PanOfPans

3 stars Atom Heart Mother is the 5th studio album of the progressive rock band, Pink Floyd. Written about a woman being fitted with a nuclear-powered pacemaker, Pink Floyd did not gain real relevance until this album hit the charts around the world. Shifting out of their Psychedelic/Space Rock era of musical expertise, Waters and Gilmour took their band to new heights with this album. Is it a perfect comeback by one of the most highly regarded prog-rock bands of all time? No, but it certainly does have it's jaw dropping wows. ---------------------------------------------------- 1. Atom Heart Mother (Suite) ------------------ The longest Pink Floyd to date, this 24 minute suite got the band on to new experimental heights. It is hard to juxtapose this with the other tracks on the album, due to it's musical nature to be much different then a normal track or an epic like "Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast". Starting with the signature fading-in hum that starts many of Pink Floyd's great hits, the listener is greeted with fanfare, which is unusual for a Pink Floyd song. Gilmour, Waters, Mason, and Wright however come in to save the day with their extraordinary work of instrumentals. The suite stretches on, and starts hitting very psychedelic and odd bumps, which really throws off the suite's rhythm. Some better parts are fitted into the suite, however are slightly spoiled by the less appealing aspects of their predecessors. Admittedly, the suite was a masterpiece and a fine work of art until "Echoes" on Meddle came to claim the spot as one of the greatest rock suites of all time, and "Atom Heart Mother" was left to linger in it's over-looming shadow. ----------------------------- 2. If ------------------------- The first and unavoidable first primarily Waters-written track on the album, "If" takes the mic after the preceding suite has faded into silence. The song starts out relatively slow, and gives you the feeling that the song will turn to something great. It doesn't. The song retains the same chord progression and doesn't change musically until it picks up slightly with the lamely soft drum work of Mason. The lyrical work retains it's major heading all throughout the track, usually starting with Waters saying along the lines of: "If I were a ____, I'd ______". Then, after four and a half minutes of looping music, the song ends with no visible sign of stopping or musical climax to warn you of the song's sudden drop into silence. If I were the writer of this song, I'd really need to step up my game. ---------------------- 3. Summer '68 ------------------------ One of the only 16 Pink Floyd songs to have Wright singing, one of the 6 Pink Floyd songs to have Wright be the only singer, and one of the 8 songs to be written solely by Wright himself. Opening with a soothing piano piece coupled with Wright himself singing, the song gets you in the mood of a slow song. This is broken very soon by a barrage of guitar and drums coupling with the keyboard (which has become much more bouncy and jazzy) and the Abbey Road Session Pops Orchestra coming in with the brass. Wright's voice is very beautiful, and it gives me sadness that he didn't sing in many other songs after this one by himself. This is definitely one of the greater tracks on Atom Heart Mother. ----------------------- 4. Fat Old Sun ------------------------------ The only solely Gilmour written and sung song on the album, "Fat Old Sun" brings a god damn smile to my face every time I hear it. Starting with Gilmour's extraordinary guitar work, coupled with Mason's superb percussion mastery, this song rises to the stop on my list of best songs from the album. The song start's with the sound of distant ringing bells that thrusts you into the extraordinary work of Gilmour and his fellow band members. While the sweet song takes it's time, you are suddenly put into the astonishing rock solo that closes the song. As the rocking guitar solo ends, the opening bells come back to finish the job and close the doors on this masterpiece. This is DEFINITELY my favourite song from the album. ------------------------------- 5. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast ---------------------------------- Meant to be an ode to the past founder of the band, Syd Barret, this take the place as my least favourite of the tracks of the album. The title and composition was supposed to be a reference to the Floyd's mainly psychedelic influenced music from when they first started their first studio album. The song is obviously supposed to maintain their old school psychedelic feeling, and I think they did a pretty good job. The thing is, their trippy origins weren't favorable in my opinion either. So, by making this song, they successfully made the song just as good as their origins, so not very good at all. The song is obviously trying way to hard at being super-psychedelic with it's goofy over-the-top sound effects, and which therefore makes the song very unappealing in my opinion. The song can have some very moving pieces during it, however, which makes it at least standable. When I'm trying to enjoy a nice acoustic guitar piece, however, I would rather not having the noises of a man shoveling food down his throat with unbelievable gusto, and then just choking on it and taking me away from the atmosphere of the track. My least favorite on the album, but it does hold it's strong suits and it's special place in my heart.

The Death Of Billy Jensen
Spiral Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

2 stars rom the homecity of the mighty Heisenberg, Albuquerque in New Mexico, started this extremely prolific duo of Chris Boat and Aaron Frale in late-00's.While Frale provides vocals and guitars, Boat appears to handle all the rest of the instrumental armour: keyboards, bass and guitars, while he also sings in Spiral's works.They made their debut via bandcamp in July 2010 with the album ''The death of Billy Jensen'', a weird concept album talking about the Jensens, living in a house in the desert and having a unique ability to bring to life exact genetic copies of of themselves, after the youngest of the family members kills all the rest and regiving birth to them.

Spiral displayed all the elements that more or less followed them in their career.The duo played a modern Psychedelic Rock, often led by heavier guitar tunes, featuring plenty of vocal distortions, always led by the raw electric guitars with some supporting keyboards and sinister, ambiental soundscapes.This might appear to be some great musc on paper, but the mass of sampled voices and the constant mania for producing downtempo textures and minimalistic images definitely do not belong among the album's peaks.The concept seems to lead the music here, the deep lyrics are supported by the appropriate soundscapes and, depending on these, Spiral deliver angry riffs, slow-paced lead guitars, spacey underlines and even orchestral atmospheres.The cohesion between the different climates is among the most efficient elements of the album, what really hurts Spiral's debut is the rather one-dimensional electric patterns and the lack of instrumentally richer moments.Lots of spoken parts, effects and the aforementioned ambiental ideas are closer to a film score and not a proper album to listen at home.The more energetic passages though allow the duo's talent to be unleashed and the potential is certainly there.

I can see this as the perfect soundtrack for a related movie, but for a regular album ''The death of Billy Jensen'' has some obvious flaws.Free bandcamp release, modern Prog maniacs should propably have a listen to Spiral's debut...2.5 stars.

Ummagumma
Pink Floyd Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Anon-E-Mouse

4 stars A classic album that few - if anyone - listens to anymore. Both Pink Floyd and music in general have come a long way since 1969. Back then it was considered as groundbreaking effort that, in turn, paved the way to and inspired countless psychedelic releases. 45 years later, such works are still coming thick and fast. On the side of understandable nostalgia, "Ummagumma" still commands due respect - even if it doesn't get much play these days.

Rating this work represents quite a challenge because the two discs are very different. Disc 1 is a pure psychedelic trip. With headphones on, one could go on astral travel into outer space. It would deserve a rating of 4, or 5, even by today's standards.

Disc 2 however is an overly indulgent recording that was typical of that era. The excesses of that time today wouldn't be tolerated, let alone lead to a record contract. The individual members largely just fooling around, perhaps exploring the (then) new stereo effects. It may have been somewhat amusing then, but in musical terms it only contains fragments of engaging bits. It is seen as "Collectors/Fans only" to a rating of 2.

So, which way do I lean? Do I knock the whole work over disk 2? No, I won't, I'll just give that one a miss. But disc 1 remains a worthy addition, deserving due attention, so I can't rate it as "good, but non-essential". And this one wins the contest to a weak 4.
