Acid Mothers Temple is one of those bands that I can't help but loving just for the self-indulgence alone. I find it extremely awesome (and fun) that they create music at the rate they do however the heck they want and it's that type of freedom that flows through many of their records, many that I love.
But this album is a different thing entirely from their psychedelic albums that recall the sixties themself, this album is dark and pulsating electronic drone music that is ominous and sort of an obscurity in the Acid Mothers Temple catalog.
This album is a beauty, the sound the band achieves (there's even polished production!) is stunning and leaves the listener breathless. With each second that passes in this album, the more your mind is pulled into the spaced out void of drone that is prominent on this record. It's more literally "space-out" than the bands earlier space rock releases!
For some it may not be easy on the ears, but it's the easiest on the ears I've heard from this band and they really created a beautiful record here, not just a self-indulgent psych record.
