CD Reviews

Cosmo Sun Connects! | Galesburg, IL United States | 11/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a stunning late period Ra album. Beautiful space-chants and atonal keyboard freakouts plus a mix of Ellingtonian Ra-jazz as only the Arkestra could do it. Maybe not the album to _start_ with if you are unfamiliar with Ra's music, but if you are already a fan and haven't heard this, then you need it."

"I'd like to be able to say that this is a great record, but it's not. It's some live recordings from 1984-85, most of which veer towards anarchic keyboard-based noise. The one particularly impressive track here is the opener, an updated version of "Fate in a Pleasant Mood" which was first recorded by the Arkestra back in 1960; here's it's long and leisurely. The rest is a bit chaotic and a bit unfocused, to my ears."
