Album Review
Reviewed 2003-10-22
Heavy psychedelic music from this UK band. This is their first record in 7 years. There is lots of repetitiveness that really turns into a drone which drifts and jams away. No vocals. This is not a stoner rock band as they never really get that heavy and it’s more based early 70s hard psychedelic music.

**1. This first track really sets the tone for the album. The main idea is a repeating somewhat heavy rock riff and this riff is repeated during not just this track but is the basis for the first 4 tracks. When I say repetitive I mean REPETITIVE! You have this rock riff, repetitive simple drums and bass, and a noodling psych guitar in the background for a little over 12 minutes. And you know what? It’s pretty good.

**2. I laughed out loud when track two began with the same riff as track one. The 2nd guitar is a bit more like Spacemen 3 than the noodling in the first track.

**3. Guess what riff they start track 3 with? The First half of this track is very similar to track 2. But then the riff goes to the background the swirling, shimmering guitar comes to the front (that could also be some keyboards). Eventually the drums and bass disappear and we just have this beautiful shimmering sound.

4. A different sound. What sounds like a mix of loops, keyboards, and some guitar noodling. I like it, but almost 10 minutes of it?

5. Some bass noodling, loops and even background electronic beats.

6. Like track 5 but a bit noisier and slightly more guitar.
