3 stars The following work of MUSICA TRANSONIC - А Πιλγριμδ Σολαχε (1996) - is a bit more polished.

Just like the previous 'exploded' confession by three loudspeakers, MUSICA TRANSONIC has come back to us with a bulky mass of improvised loudness. Needless to say, neither pretensions nor modesty in them and their second work А Πιλγριμδ Σολαχε, but uniquely we can find some more 'refinement' in it than their debut one. Exactly there was some improvement on their recording quality (not intentionally?), but I guess, one of more important point is that they could have something united or arranged well upon this work.

Listen to the first track, and this can remind us the middle part of 21st Century Schizoid Man - some battles among Fripp's guitar and Greg & Micheal's rhythm section - you know? Basically they played impromptu and freely, but we can feel some stability in them, despite of a certain crazy loudness in their debut. Without any suspicion, Makoto's guitar can be very loud and aggressive, with such noises like peep-peep-shoot-shoot, and Tatsuya's drumming can also be flexible and intentionally scattered, like some arrhythmia in a dancing heart. Let me insist upon this - Asahito's bass solo has very steady potential energy, supporting the other instruments and players entirely exploded on their own way.

Not only massive attacks, but something folksy and relaxing in such as sixth tracks. Of course, a completely improvised aggression should be in the last one. Japanese loud psychedelia, with colourful variation ... very fascinating album.
