4 stars Once again I have to thank Avestin for bringing another great band to my attention. The title of the record is "Liquid" and on the front cover is a person diving into the water,and when you open it up you will see this amazing picture of these towering waves on both sides and you feel like your in this swell at the mercy of the ocean. I am reminded of the title of THE SPACIOUS MIND album called "Sailing Of The Seagoat". This for me is a ride on the sea that sometimes is at night where it's dark and calm when suddenly the waves start to build and your hanging on tight.Then a crushing wave will send you on an exhilarating ride. Next it's sunny and everything is perfect you would rather be nowhere else until the seas start to get rough and it continues to get worse as the clouds have covered the sun and your hanging on for dear life again.Yeah this is a trip.

It opens with "Tsunami" and as you might imagine from the title this one has some crushing soundscapes. It starts with spacey synths that are joined by gentle guitar melodies 2 1/2 minutes in. It's all starting to build as drums are added. We get a full sound 5 minutes in with BLACK SABBATH-like heaviness, almost doom-like. It all calms back down before things start to get heavy again 9 minutes in as crushing waves crash upon us.

"Crystalline" has a pastoral intro as the sound starts to build. The melody 3 minutes in sounds so good ! This is perfect weather folks and you wish it would just go on like this forever. But 7 minutes in we are flattened by a wall of sound as the song ends. "Evaporate" has a good contrast between the heavy outbreaks and the beautiful soundscapes throughout this song. It has a spacey ending. "Voyage Automatique" has a good beat and a really nice sound with spacey synths, and it's heavy. The beat then stops as spacey synths continue until the song is over. This is the exact same melody that opened the album.

I highly recommend this album to all you space cadets out there.This sounds so good loud.
