muschiosauro First track: insistent motorik rhythm drenched in an ocean of synth sounds flown over by catchy yet hypnotic female vocals. And you think you have it pinpointed. But no. Second song: motorik becomes polyrhythms, while catchiness becomes a gloomy dronescape. And after that you have ambient with numinous chanting that morph into mysterious ethnic colors scorched by wailing guitars which go on to inform the epic, zoned out, heavy psych rocker that closes this fantastically mesmerizing album. Favorite track: The Current.

jasonk Wasn't as into this one when it 1st came out, but it's grown on me like like a glowing alien fungus that whispers secrets & promises as it spreads. Maybe I should see a doctor about that.

a halo of light reflects around the perimeter round and around shine through a broken prism on the water cut off from the sun that's powered all that you've done (it echoes) the current keeps pulling along like a serpent knowingly coiled around and around the perimeter a speck of dust on the mirror's surface casts a shadow that grows with every glance like a wordless whisper in a hall of glass potentiality reflecting all that you see as we move through the dream purify my mind till I have no use for mind purify my heart till I have no use for purity

remember child: you are a universe within yourself the sun and moon and stars above all have their parallels inside each microcosmic vessel of your human cell you are the alpha the omega, heaven and hell

we looked for you among the people we looked for you among the gods we looked for you in the cathedrals we looked for you among the stars we looked for you in silent waters we looked for you in desert sun we looked for you in love me harder we looked for you in turn me on we looked for you in el dorado we looked for you in babylon we looked for you in aeronautics we looked for you in america without and within illusion arrives the moment we begin reflecting a light mistaking itself for a pattern from outside go along with the scene and reinscribe the logic of the dream or roll along to the sea where even the gods die of temporality

as long as the animal lives he is running as long as the animal lives he is running as long as the man lives he is running as long as the man lives he is running in comes the great cold of the night she is coming in comes the great cold of the night she is coming in comes the great cold of the night she is coming in comes the great cold of the night she is darkness (repeat 2x) the prisoner is free the prisoner is free the shadow here has disappeared and your prisoner is free
