4 stars Not sure if the Guru's spiritual / religious commune (named Source Family) can give us comfort or fantasy or anything, but his musical stuffs should shoot magical mystery tour to us. Via this creation "I'm Gonna Take You Home", released in 1974, Father Yod might have showed us his tendency to appreciate natural love affair and sensual spiritualization.

Regardless of indecent vibes, Guru's serious, sincere intention for sexadelic, sexaholic academy, can be heard enough, along with their rumpled (sometimes tight) play drenched in mind-altering psychic smoke and agents. Easily guess this eccentric psychedelia can be created with unpolished guitar sounds based upon floating but deep riffs by their rhythm section. We should get amazed because such an unstable play support Guru's self-assertive, self-complacent voices filled with orgasmic temptation (especially in the Part 3 ... his sexadelic ascension moment can be heard).

On the other hand, like in the Part 4, we can feel something mellow and meditative completed in his private room via their quiet, down-tempo, bluesy music mist. Contrary to Father Yod's crazy, consistent philosophical voices, other four musicians in his background could play sometimes funkily, sometimes loosely, sometimes deeply, and sometimes powerfully and enthusiastically. Their experimentalism flooded with such a kaleidoscopic sound-strategy should encourage the solid spirit of YA HO WHA 13, I do consider.

Listen and feel their spirit, and you can realize what they'd meant to do, really.
