Apparently, this CD is of a soundtrack for some porno film but it's said to be 'the lost album' between the time the band released 'Troubadour...Another' and 'Pataphisical Freak Out MU!!' (see my reviews of both). Starts off with "Reverse Of The Universe" - a six-minute (most-annoying) single note keyboard drone I think I've ever heard and the almost too out-there "Space Bambino". Rest assure, this CD gets better. "Sweet Juicy Lucy" is more like the tyipcal Acid Mothers track that is (in fact) trippy as well as a bit stagnating - but still good. "Mammary Intercourse" sounds sort of like someone playing a Hawkwind vinyl lp backwards and "Hare Hare Hallelujah / Blow Out" is part experimental and part spaced out bliss - has a nice ethnic vibe to it. Then there's the eighteen-minute "Stone Blind Blue Heaven" which is more of that hard-to-resist spaced out bliss and the CD finale - which is a part two "Reverse Of The Universe". Only here, the single-note drone isn't as long. Whew! A strange, yet pleasant disc to put in the stereo after you've had an off day.
