Musically the band bring the usual tasty blend of psych-kraut-space rock grooves. The propulsive chug of ‘Maalimanlopun Ateriana’ is spattered by outburts of acid yellow 80’s synth that pop up now and then across the record. It’s light on its feet and the quicker, restlessly motorik numbers alternate with a couple of more laid back, wide eyed dreamers. The atmospheric ‘Meanwhile’ finds us orbiting serenely while Boman reports back from the planet below. It doesn’t sound like he has great news. On the chilled out, nocturnal ‘Satavuotiaden Salaisuus’ he contents himself with a series of low growls and groans. Either side of it the wonderfully titled ‘Lalibela Cannot Spell Zero’ and ‘I Drove All Night by My Solar Stomp’ seem cut from the same cloth of expanding, driving, kraut metal, heading for the horizon flattening all in their path.
