3 stars Sounds like another addictive, abusive, bluesy, black comfort. I have no idea where in line this album "Starless And Bible Black Sabbath" was created because ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE are one of the most prolific artists all over the world even currently, but I'm sure this album should have been produced with their energetic, proactive, and improvisational sound experiments just like their previous works. The first (and the longest, great majority) track, that was titled after a renowned album by a renowned progressive rock pioneer and a renowned heavy metal artist themselves with much mischief and playfulness, is flooded with Hiroshi's spacey synthesizer wandering around the studio, massive and excessive rhythm compounds, and heavy guitar-oriented shoegaze sounds. Launching this track with mega-volume is exactly as addictive as abusive agents (the smoke by another audience has given serious headache to me). They would give earache to me definitely, but at the same time, this attack is of another comfort for me.

On the contrary, the last short one "Woman From A Hell" is a pop, catchy pleasure. Needless to say this song is filled with spaceship travelling sounds too and, drenched in danceable and enjoyable guitar machine gun and vocal explosion. AMTers and the audience can get excited and confused with joy. Why not addicted after such a black sabbath-y starshine?
