4 stars Dzyan represents an awesome combination of Eastern inspired motifs and ultimate "acid" jazz improvisations. Considered to be the best Dzyan effort "Time Machine" is much more progressive than the others and largely neglect the dreamy / trance-like vibrations of "electric silence". "Kabisrain" opens this freak out jazz rock collection with an atmospheric sound full of acoustic guitars, eastern harmonies and cymbals. A weird, avant-folk ambience prevails. "Magika" is a wonderful, colourful psychedelic jazz excursion with many complex rhythmical variations. The musical level is similar to Return to Forever at their submit. After four minutes the tempo goes slower with a magnificent chromatic guitar work. The drum and bass guitar accompaniment is as precise as consistent. A few amazing, groovy effects come into the "trip". "Light shining out of darkness" is a mixture of speed acoustic guitar sequences (exploring McLaughlin's guitar playing) with a world and jazzy feel. The last track is deserved to fusion jazz, including nice instrumental demonstrations and some melodic guitar parts. A progressive, propulsive, "delirious" jazz rock. Very good.
