4 stars Another incredible release from DJAM KARET.This one reminds me of the "Reflections From The Firepool" record, in that it blends beautifully the spacey, psychedelic sounds with the guitar driven passages.

"No Man's Land" is such a great song ! I really like the drum and bass melody with the guitars firing off some blistering solos throughout. "Eclipse of Faith" is a short song of samlings and spacey sounds. "Web of Medea" is another highlight. It sounds like the start of a PINK FLOYD song from "The Wall", before bringing to mind PORCUPINE TREE. The spacey sounds with organ are great. We then hear the wind blowing half way through. It blends into the next song "Demon Train" which has some weird, spacey noises as percussion comes in and never leaves. "All Clear" is led by a drum and organ melody before guitars make their presence felt after 2 minutes, that include some scorching guitar solos followed by some soaring melodies. Fat bass lines too.

"Raising Orpheus" opens with waves of synths as it sounds like the guitars are starting up. Drums 2 minutes in as we get more of a melody. Guitars are soaring beautifully, as the song ends with synth washes. "Kali's Indifference" sounds like we are lost in space and I hope nobody finds us. "Alone With The River Man" opens with guitar as percussion comes in. It all stops before 3 minutes as some ripping guitar arrives with percussion. Synths take over for the guitar, and it's a fantastic sound. "Going Home" is probably my favourite song on this album. It has this laid back,relaxing melody of synths,guitar and drums that is very uplifting at times. This is disrupted 3 minutes in by some aggresive guitar for about 2 minutes. Nice. Mellotron flows as well in this song. "Eulogy" is the shortest song with processed vocals, percussion and a spacey background. Cool song.
