4 stars I certainly will point out to "Psychedelic/Space Rock" followers, that in able to get the most of this "instrumental" project (released in 3 parts), you should have some "knack" for RIO/AG and Jazz/Fusion. It, in fact sounds like this mixture and also of course the "electronic" touch of "The Future Sound of London" (which is the band that led me to "Androginous Amorphous" in the first place). I will not bore you with all the speculations about Noel Gallagher's participation or the return of some old time guest, nor the involvement of a member of Syd Arthur. To me, really, if the song writing is bad, you could play alongside Jesus and Budha and still don't make it happen. Anyway, if I had to choose between the also very good "Cartel Vol. 1", I will stick to this one, this flawless jewel, Vol.2., but will not miss the first, (it will be senseless), of this two parts of the same "3 part project" .

An excellent display of straight forward music in mostly short timed songs (no long "overtures" or stuff like that), in a variety of musical expressions or "orientations", (not unlike their previous efforts), that are daring, yet unpretentious, in both song-writing and genre styling. It sounds fresh and refreshing, bold and original, perfectly manufactured, edited and concieved. Both records (I haven't heard the 3th.),sum up 5 stars together, this the second part of this "trilogy", for me, ****4.5 PA stars, and my 2013's probable best and my RIO/AG favorite record of the year, although it does not figure in that genre.
