CD Reviews

M. Harris | BRIGHTON, EAST SUSSEX United Kingdom | 12/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Quintessance as a live force were i'm told interminably boring. Like the German band Sweet Smoke they were deeply into religous chants, mantra's and spacy improvisations. Whereas Sweet Smoke made a half decent live album( now issued with extra tracks) and the excellant 'just a poke' Quintessance just couldn't get it right in the studio. There is always something worthwhile on the three albums but God, you have to plunder through some drivel. This is probably the best album, but it's faults far out weigh the plus's. On the good side there is some nice spacy early Hawkwind like excursions and the flute gives it an edge, on the minus side there is a lengthy sitar excursion that goes on forever and the singer is a bit overbearing and lyrically well..cringe worthy os maybe a bit to polite. Now i'm not against praising your God in music and i'm not an athiest but sometimes its just a bit to over the top and preachy. The cover though is excellant and the extra's show that when they could three minutes can do more than eleven. I believe after they split the flautist Raja Ram (bet that's not his real moniker) got heavily into dance music. Monotony in the 200's same as monotony in 69!"
