4 stars After interesting (but not better than that) debut, Dzyan's second album is real improvement! In fact, it's just totally different band - only same musician on both albums is bassist Reinhard Karwatky, and second album recorded by psychedelic trio.

Album's opener is down tempo Spanish/Arabic music influenced psychedelic jazz rock composition with plenty of acoustic guitar soloing. Fantastic atmosphere, and you're really waiting what happens next.

No disappointment - second composition " Magika" is real complex jazz-rock jam, again - with strong dose of psychedelia. Musicians show their excellence there!

"Light shining out of darkness" is about acoustic jazzy guitar, melancholic melody and fantastic rhythms! Last album's composition "Time machine" is longest one (17+ minutes) and demonstrates all band's best abilities - from fast power fusion in the beginning to melodic and psychedelic melancholia, heavy electric guitar attack and acoustic aerial down tempo sound again...

Too short for masterpiece, this a4 compositions album is really great one! Recommended for all early krautrock and jazz-rock lovers!

My rating is 4+!
