1 stars Space Hymns are a very repetitive type of hymn, almost like a mantra. Space Hymns are a very repetitive type of hymn, almost like a mantra. Space Hymns are a very repetitive type of hymn, almost like a mantra. Space Hymns are. Oh, I'm sorry, I fell into a kind of bored trance from listening to this album. This Ramases guy really repeats himself a lot. Most of the lyrics consist of one line being sung over and over and over and over, almost like a mantra. It is almost never offensive, only very boring. And, did I mention, repetitive?

The instruments involved are mainly acoustic guitars. But occasional drums, sitar and discrete Moog and flutes can be heard. The vocals are both male and female, and repetitive to extremes. Repetitive to extremes. Repetitive to extremes.

Ramases must be character hard to have any social interaction with, unless you have a lot of spare time and don't get bored easily. Maybe he lives by the philosophy that repetition is the mother of all knowledge? Well, despite all the repetition, I don't really remember anything about the music. And I most certainly did not learn anything from it! All the songs sound quite similar, so if you have heard one of them, you have heard them all basically.

I guess Ramases was on something when he created his Space Hymns, and I guess that the listener will have to be on the same thing in order to enjoy them.

Do yourself a favour and don't bother with these Space Hymns. Sorry Ramases!
