CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Perfect listening for solitude, Ookii Gekkou discovers strange beauty within the mundane -- and once again demonstrates that Vanishing Twin's imagination is boundless, even when the world only extends as far as the walls around them.

Loud and Quiet

Over nine tracks the group tell stories from a lockdown-inspired world “where it’s always night”, reaching for a broad array of musical traditions – from afro-funk to cosmic jazz – to bolster their familiar grooves.

Vanishing Twin continues to delight with their mad, psychedelic jazz rock fusion (everything from krautrock to afrobeat to space jazz), an eerie noirish world bathed in twilight theme strings it all together

Standouts: Big Moonlight (Ookii Gekkou), In Cucina, Phase One Million, Zuum, The Organism

This albums is much weaker than the debut, but still contains nice neo-psychedelic songs.
