4 stars This fine hardcore psychedelic album contains two long tracks, which provide an interesting forty-seven minutes long surreal experience for willing listeners. The presence of the music is revealed cautiously, bringing front a shimmering wall of crystalline echoing voices. This avant-garde vision leads to a narcotic and hypnotic groovy and bluesy tribal section. The rhythmic acoustic guitar later starts to play a pretty and calm folky tune, joined by windy rollings and melancholic lone synthesizer melodies. Later the song morphs as ethnic tribal chant for voices, primitive flute and drumming. The second song starts quite Dadaistically, resembling Syd Barrett's mad visions and simple joyful folk rock madness. Distant sounds of rolling winds and another scene of primitive, hypnotic acoustic guitar playing with percussion slides in, later followed by oppressing lullaby theme and in the end concluding the intensive trip to a dramatic closing number for screaming acid guitar, lunatic sounding singing and reprisal of presented musical elements. The layers of the music blend slowly and sometimes run together for longer, creating interesting and pleasant collages of sounds. If you like tribal trance elements, madness of the surrealism, and hardcore psychedelic rock music, this record is warmly recommended (ps. vinyl reissues are on the move).
