5 stars This first full CD of DaSputnik offers the listeners a pleasant voyage to the worlds inihibited by jazzy melodic textures and realexed hippierock passages. In these valleys lay firm stoner guitar walls and vivid twists of rhythm section, all illuminated by starlit of myriad space rock elements. Simple progressions gain depth from multi-instrument arrangements and rhythmic alterations, which create strong emotional tensioans, and similarly increase the level of musical information, which charms to return listen the record eagerly again. Main themes are assembled trough controlled changes, and longer free spaces work as a basis for mutual melody innovations (I would really recommend to see these musicians on stage). Synthesis of menacing cosmic synth drones and classic sounding tenor saxophone create a personal sound, and compositional elements maximize the dramatic potential of this instrumental abstract music. Songs contain mood changes which are conducted in logical manner, escaping the most harcore avantgardistic solutions and keeping the stuff quite accessible. In addition of celestial space travelling there are also more mellow symphatetic casual sequences included, reflecting the human element among the divine and grandious motives. Songs apply the different approach possibilities exessively, and create a rich selection of different tracks forming a solid and good quality album, convingly not containing any evident filler material. Thus I proclaim this as a very recommendable album worth of attention to psychedelic music fans fond of jazzy, heavy and positive cosmic music..
