Prog Reviewer
4 stars Like all Taj Mahal Travellers albums, this is a superb recording. Particularly if you're into 'Kluster'. With dark creepy happenings from the outset, It reminds me very much of Cosi Fanni Tutti's Coronet horn from 'Throbbing Gristle' on the album 'Heathen Earth'

I could name many bands from the 80's who must surely have taken this album as an inspiration for their own sound. In particular 'Zoviet France', 'Coil' 'Lustmord' and early 'Current 93'.

The 'Taj Mahal Travellers' decided mainly to perform their music outdoors, often on beaches and hilltops, creating spontaneously improvised drones, delayed and reverbed violin wailings and a large number of highly unusual instruments. Very unorthodox even today, using all sorts of strange gadgets, devices and electronic filters. If you're at the extreme end of prog - this could be right up your alley.

Timeless and creepy.
