Well, the repeated riffs and the vocal tag--burning in snow, is sounds like to me--make this a pleasure to hear. It's not as thickly recorded a sound as their other releases as the Cosmic Inferno, and I was happily surprised to hear how well it works as an extended musical effort. It ebbs and flows as you'd expect, but never settles into one groove for too long. Pre-75 Hawkwind comparisons are in order, but also the hints of Eastern music that chime in the more rarified hints behind the giant hooks--as in the closing seconds of this album. I don't bestow five stars very often for even my favorite music, but I must bow to these Japanese incarnations of mantra madness and admit their mastery of making one song flow so eloquently, so powerfully, and so enjoyably. Don't let their appearance, their comparative obscurity (they deserve far greater exposure and acclaim) or their relentless devotion to towering sonic constructions dissuade you: at their core, as shown with affection here, AMT + CI remember the sheer rush that good music grants us lucky all.
