3 stars Planets, stars, nebulas?a spacey tale!

Another feast of space progressive rock can be found in this album which was released last year (2011) though recorded in 2010. Its name is "Entering into the Space Country" and since the title one can imagine what the band offer here, well, if you already know them, then you will already know in which country are you entering. This time they share a three-song album that makes a total time of 44 minutes.

It opens with "Born between the Stars" whose 22 minutes give us a journey to their peculiar and particular galaxy. It starts softly and gets more intense while the seconds run. The atmosphere and spacey synthesizers are always there, sharing nuances and colors, while the guitars can offer not so trippy notes, or interesting vivid riffs, if required. I like the changes in this track, the first minutes are soft, but after five it changes and becomes faster; later it slows down again and at minute nine its intensity increases once again, expressing the activities that one can have while being born between the stars, well, let your imagination fly. The jam continues for some minutes, creating those different inner passages that together complete the puzzle.

""Red Earth Calling" is the shortest composition with "only" seven minutes. The funny thing here is that OSC has made us used to their long 10+ minutes jams, so in a shortie like this everything passes fast, so when you less imagine it, the song has already finished. This track is calm and atmospheric, with nice guitars on it and a soft rhythm, though there is a moment when it seems to become a bit heavier or chaotic, but that does not actually happen.

The last track is "Rising Tides and Floating Nebulas". The first couple of minutes are not that attractive with an uncertain sound that fortunately morphs later; when it changes, the rhythm is now attractive and even addictive after three minutes, with fast drums, cool guitar notes and very good synth and keyboard effects. When it becomes more intense is when I enjoy it the most, because it transmits that vertigo and pressured feeling that makes me want to run, haha funny. But well, later it slows down considerably and that emotion is lost in me. The last three minutes are nice, trying to recover from the lower moment, but it does not reach its peak again.

As usual, this is a very nice album from this collective whose music are guarantee of good time and quality, however, I did not feel that motivated or caught by what they offered here, that is why my grade will be three stars.

Enjoy it!
