3 stars On their second album Dzyan go beyond the fusion flirtations of their debut and step wholeheartedly into the fusion genre, with songs like Magika sounding at points like a cross between the Mahavishnu Orchestra and Frank Zappa's Hot Rats material. At the same time, the band are already moving beyond fusion into even stranger experimental waters; for example, the title track closes off with a long section in which the rhythm section plays a repeating, angular riff which sounds an awful lot like something Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band might have tried out on Lick My Decals Off Baby or Trout Mask Replica, whilst Eddy Maron's guitar and sax soloing keeps the track from getting too boring. Another album proving that Dzyan were much more unique and original than many second-tier bands on the Krautrock scene, though by dint of this they are something of an acquired taste and they can tend to latch into ideas and keep pecking at them until they become unbearable.
Warthur | 3/5 |
