CD Reviews

Mind-blowing psychedelic mayhem
Maria H. R. Souza | Rio de Janeiro, Rio de Janeiro Brazil | 11/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This record is really a very fierce and hypnotic hyperspace-rock journey. Echoes of Ash Ra Tempel, Syd Barret's Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, Amon Düül II and Agitation Free could be find here, but Subarachnoid Space manages to melt all those influences with 'take-no-prisoners' firepower,boldness and originality. The combined attack of the cerebellum gnawing spaced-out acid guitars and the thunderous rhythm section is positivelly astounding. This is REAL stuff, mind-blowing psychedelic mayhem for the 90's, very good."
Fluid and dreamy...

"When I picked up this disk I really had no idea what to expect. I was really blown away. Imagine Hawkwind without vocals, jamming with Ozric Tentacles in a chilled out mood. This cd consists of live material that all flows together in an audio-aural mix. It's great background music for any occasion. If you like what you hear here, the band offers tons of MP3s, but nothing off of this album so you'll just have to take my word and pick it up."

"Their albums DON'T all sound the same. THIS one is a particular fave. Mileage may vary. Some people call this sort of music "Drone." Not because it all sounds alike. You figure it out. Here's a clue--East Indian music uses what is referred to as a "drone" chord. This also appears in Scottish and other Celtic musics.

This is one of my favorite groups. I like their lyrics. Seriously, tho, the work has less to do with pop structures than with avante garde or jazz or classical forms. Far more like a sonata-form than an ABA popsong. Sometimes it is as simple and compelling as gamelan, other times as layered and contrapunctal as Mozart. Ah, dis de stuff fo me...

Mason, former band member who got sick of touring and now mainly does studio work (if I got the story right) put together a few collections of space rock that are howling good. Sound like Hawkwind and Pink Fairies...without all the bad takes. VERY tasty. Seek it out. I can NOT find it and do NOT remember the name...sorry.
