5 stars This is hilarious ! Gong doing Carmina Burana?! I advise you this review is going to be as demented as nonsensical...but how do you convey in any image how this music feels like?... Well i would try warning has been done..... Firstly i want to be clear, this is just aesthetical concepts, no social or political, this is just imagination like a Comic Strip....Imagine the contraculture had happen in a Teutonic hiperboric land. Imagine that in some German valhalla scaped from the nuttiest Pangermanist imagination, a tribe of viking demi-gods have found some vinyls of Coltrane, they made them sound by chance in a stereo found near, ant took it as a present from the Asses, or as a magical item, aoutrageously they find some strange mushrooms and some weird weed, took it as a sacrament and start doing a ritual....a war ritual to conquer other world! Thats exactly how it sounds like X) Imagine Gong enrapted in time by a spell made in an old German court, and then imagine they start partying, glidding, and goofing with incredible conviction together while the Pot head pixies and Odin are descending from another plane to make them testify!! The musical result is asthonising..... it relays in repetition with such willpower and maestry, that is just doesnt stop like a monstrous machinery, on and on, climax after climax, non stop. Is indeed quite sexy long as you dont identifie musical sexyness with funk or something akin. Is sexy in a incredible bizarre way, because the martial aspect is absolutely blended with the sexy aspect, nuty and impossible i know but hear and see it by not sleazy, not bluesy macho style, is like an orgy of valkirias and opera singers X). Extatic, when it grabs you is simply extatic, you sing you yell you cry of pure joy you laugh to death...demented. Is one of the most particular and special things that i heard, literaly incomparable as you see by my crazy efforts. You have to ask it? Five stars!!!!! I will not comment any song because they are a gigantic symphonie and as repetition is the main ingredient you just dont know were one ends and the other begins. Unless you see the mp3 of course X) A must have for any freak with humour, not disgusted by willpower over-the-topness.
