Karl This release seems to be a bit overlooked in the catalogue of the Lamp's recordings. I like my music mostly instrumental, so I prefer this to Craig's other works. In parts this reminds me of another multi-instrumental musician, Deuter, and his meditation works for Osho. One long suite we have here, developping slowly from silent sitar-sounds to the climax of a furioso kraut-jamming finale. Recommended !

John Cratchley Deep drones,building incrementally and adding layers of sound as the series of parts unfolds...designed,perhaps,for meditation or deep listening,or,at least,heightened concentration...there are some spacey electronics in the mix that either help or hinder your listening experience depending on your level of out-there-ness...a nice vibe though and well sustained for a solo project.
I like the way the sitar builds in part 3...
(kind of has an Incredible String Band feel to it) and then as the sections progress we move into full-blown space rock jam (and the electronics begin to sound like the Tardis in a time warp - best left to Delia Derbyshire and the BBC radiophonic workshop,I reckon).
