Review by SaltyJon
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars This album is my first (and so far, only) release by Altered States. It's a great, 50 minute long session of nothing but improvised rock by this amazing trio. A lot of the music doesn't even sound like improvisation to me, the band members are really good together. The album is three tracks, two of which pass the 20 minute mark and one of which is just under 6. The longer tracks see the band stretching out a bit more and showing off their incredible skills, and the shorter track is a bit more focused around some shorter themes and quirkiness. The band has a bit of a jazzy sound, but not overly so; it more blends in with their other influences. This album is a good choice for anyone who's interested in some of Yoshida Tatsuya's less crazy projects, like Korekyojinn. Actually, the bassist from this band is the bassist for Korekyojinn as well, a smart move by Yoshida Tatsuya while starting that band.

I give this album a strong 4 star rating, almost 5 but not quite there yet.
