3 stars Oh my pasta! ... They play with enjoying, indeed.

Eerie atmosphere and dark shadow they have ... certainly most of listeners can say so. However trust me, can you feel at first that they should play free and improvised jam session with ENJOYING? At least for me, the answer is "YES". This album cannot sound pizza-pasta-ish exactly - weirdly heavy, dark, depressive, and stoned psychedelia here is. The launcher named 'Orange Shading Starlight' can shoot something impressively painful. As if we are shot a hot, dry and peppery pizza on our face. ...Joking aside, such a great peppery but sweet heraldic style from Italy amazes us deeply. This attitude momentarily was exploded upon the third track (namely the last of side A) Shades Of Evil ... a completely great free jazzy jam session they can shoot, and as a result they can make this side of the album darker and heavier. Cannot help saying "beyond expression". Their improvised plays can be well unified together ... what a surprising attack, with their certain pleasure. Contrary to that, on Side B they hold the air so depressive that we cannot feel so delightful in their play, but can call absolutely this as Stoner Progressive Rock. Yep, we can feel them "stoned" upon the last two songs The Orange Masquerade and Fallen Starlight. Not exaggerated expression I feel that they should want to play such a suite like this. Free but steady, scattered but united ... what happened, I'm sure you should say so with listening to this album.

To such a great stoner session I give cheers!
