Review by admireArt
3 stars Enjoyable but not that unique!

Justin Wright a.k.a. EXPO 70, accompanies himself in this "live" recording with drummer and percussionist Mike Vera and bass player also percussionist Aaron Osborne. This album as such has different releases and re-releases. This review is according to the 2012 release published here in PA.

"Virtually From The Unknown" 2012, is rich in its rootings which go way back from Krautrock, to Hard/Metal Rock (Black Sabbath like), to Ozric Tentacles' kind of "massive twistings", to more contemporary electronic "industrial/atmospherics" (like Robert Fripp's "Frippertronics"). All enhanced of course, with Wright's electric guitar and synths.

Most of this recording charms rely on how well they conjure a slowly developing and permanent hypnotic atmosphere, that certainly should have been a thrill to testify "live". But as an "outsider" after, I feel lots of "gentle reminders" of their surely admired musical influences. Krautrock's Ash Ra Tempel psychedelic-like tone will be covering most of the "deep, fuzz, blues" concert highlights. And more than once is hard to remember who you are listening to.

I do not mind the " flashbacks", but as far as recommending this album, I will certainly use the underrated ***3 PA stars motto: "Good but not essential".
