Yikes, this guitar is lethal. How can an album contain such incendiary shredding, and yet be so mellow? Seems improbable, but these guys hit on the right formula. You get hand drum propelled (almost afro-beat) jams, flamenco improvs, mellow guitar meditations, and a bunch of other weird shit. You know that episode of the Mighty Boosh when they are looking for "the new sound?" That's what this sounds like. There must have been a book of acid ingested when this was recorded. I refuse to believe otherwise. Grade A psych goodness if I've ever heard it.
