Review by Lewian Prog Reviewer. On the positive side, this is a very fresh, creative, and original album. Much of it is improvised. The last track is probably a fully free improvisation whereas the first three have some composition but are performed in a very free way. This is not nostalgic in the least, it has its very own character that uses some modern elements and sounds while at the same time pointing to the free and somewhat naive nature of the earliest material of the band; it is also dominated by traditional electric guitar, bass and drums, if with some electronic additions. My two favourite tracks are the second and third one.
