2 stars Entheogenesis is the state of mystical hallucinations inducted by psychothrope drugs. In South America the indigenous were used to grow a plant known as Devil's Bells for its properties. Seeking for information about the album title, I doscvered that in the garden inside my condominium there one big Devil's Bells tree. It has very nice flowers and contains scopolamine. One of the effects of scopolamine is that makes you sleepless.

Exactly the opposite effect caused by this album. I'm used to long electronic drones, and this isn't as boring as some Phrozenlight can be, but one hour of a major chord where the first change happes after 28 minutes is not exactly what you need if you want to stay awaken.

It's relaxing, newagey. It reminds to Mark Isham's Tibet, but without any trumpet. One can even enjoy it if in the right mindset, but it's nothing else than a major chord with its harmonics and some other notes coming and going.

I don't knw whether the artist was actually experiencing the entheogenesis, but honestly this album failed to bring me any particular sensation. Wrong password, probably.

Stefano Musso aka Alio Die, has a lot of good releases, so please do't think that he makes boring stuff only. Just this is not the case. An extra chord adding harmonies every 10 minutes is not enough and the sequence of 6 notes that's constantly repeated below the major chord is nothing special.

There are better things in Alio Die's huge discography.
