4 stars It was since Barret's Interstellar Overdrive that I didn't here anything like this. I remember that I was used to describe early PF music as "liquid". Lie in the dark, take your headphones and you will have a tsunami in your ears. The first track starts quiet, as the calm before the storm. It's pure space/psychedelic. It's not Barret because the sounds are newer, and not so acid. When you'll reach the first explosion, you'll understand the reason of the title. You can see in your mind what the music tries to transmit. It's a sonic trip. The following tracks don't have the same impact, but there is a continuity that makes it similar to a concept album, even if instrumental only. Liquid is an excellent title for the kind of music that it contains. Unlike some post-60 psychedelic albums like those of Bevis Frond or the most recent Jennifer Gentle, what matters is not how acid are the sounds that they can obtain, but the fluidity that they reach. One time I have forgot the "loop" function of my stereo on, and I've listened to the whole album 2 times realizing it only when the first explosion of tsunami arrived for the second time. I left it on, however.

4 stars.
