But perhaps that's not the idea here; this album is more like an electronic ritual with a single main theme.
It does successfully set that perfect space prog mood and sounds both vintage and modern at the same time. On side two 'Psych Recap' has some avant-prog appeal, but the song is again filled with remixed vocals and musical themes from the opening song. This record is good, but in no ways essential to my ears. If the main contributers Brian Dougans and Garry Cobain were to attract a serious song-writing talent they could easily create one of the best retro-space-folk-prog albums ever made.
This record sounds great, it just lacks substance in my opinion. Review by stefro Prog Reviewer. Review by admireArt Prog Reviewer. An excellent display of straight forward music in mostly short timed songs no long "overtures" or stuff like that , in a variety of musical expressions or "orientations", not unlike their previous efforts , that are daring, yet unpretentious, in both song-writing and genre styling.
