I just recently found this Sula Bassana fellow, whom I believe to be a bassist primarily. He has released many more albums than I originally thought, with various lineups. The first album I heard was The Night, which was a really interesting space rock kind of band that I was ecstatic about adding to my collection. I found that he was also behind the album/band Interkosmos. And now I'm spinning this one over and over.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The album starts with Slowner, which still seems to be my favorite. You can hear for yourself.


The second track, Terrascrew, continues the jam forward while letting off the gas a little, so to speak. This prepares you for Ridin' and Go which make up the meat of the middle of the album. The drummer's jazzy style and the space rock ambience of the guitars drag me into this psychedelic world. This is upbeat.


The Night After brings you to almost a complete halt, as it winds it's way forward backed with haunting, fiercely whispered vocals. As this long interlude, which is what I made of it, comes to an end, the band brings us right back out of it and down a completely different sound and path with Pay For Freedom which unfortunately is not uploaded to youtube.
I would have posted a link to this one, so make sure to find a way to hear Pay For Freedom everyone. That's where the experimental part of their name came from. And it was done quite well.

We're back to normality so to speak with Daydreams. This is the most relaxing track on the album. We're taken on a nice surreal journey with soft sung lyrics. Then, as if being dosed, we're dropped off in the very vivid Emmerting Spring. Haunting instruments back the sounds of nature at it's purest. Chanting against a simple guitar and bass 'riff'. Experimental atmospheric relaxation. Lots going on. Beautiful and dark. This one clocks in at 9:24. It's worth visiting this 'place' again. It seems to be my personal happy place at the moment.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
87/100. The Night After seems to be the only thing I can find that I'm not perfectly satisfied with, but it might grow on me. Daydreams is a special track, but I could have had just a little more out of this track, as well. Beyond that, I am extremely happy.

Hope you liked it. This is the first album review I've ever written anywhere, so pointers are welcome. Thanks for reading. ~Mrd00d
