Cult of Dom Keller's most jammy, murky and drone-ish offering to date. It's really hard to distinguish particular songs, as they all merge together into one long kraut suite. The songwriting, unfortunately, is lacking and I really miss the vocals. Not the ascend I was looking for, but definitely not a huge descend either.
Really love their lysegic noise of previous albums but this album sounds like they really wanted to create an organic fuck you and they succeed . Exhilarating , sexy and cosmic to fuck . Intense psych post punk rock space noise that made me feel like I was l listening to the stooges for the first time or Amon duul 2. Will be a psych classic one day that people won’t understand until time passes .
