The last album of Ixthuluh leaves a mixed impression. Near some krautrock pearls like "Camel Trophy" or "Gefudel For The End" is also found average. Unfortunately, some absolutely strong pieces also suffer from the bad recording quality, like "Sailor's Dream" or "Velvet".
The album, nevertheless, is altogether certainly worth listening, with pieces which one has never heared before. The band shear yourself a mud (again) around hearing habits and with "Hornet In A Bee's Basket" the listener on a bad test is put.
The quiet "Desert Nights" with Adi Nimmerfalls flutes or Werner Katzmair with "Gefudel For The End" show the strenght of the guest's musicians with whom Ixthuluh has appeared gladly and often.
I individually like the nonorthodox and self-willed "Camel Trophy Through Seven Dirty Puddels" in the best. This is Ixthuluh offroad-sound real how it has aroused enthusiasm live mostly.
And "Start Our Fuzzy Dreams", the real opener of the album ("In The Bushes" is, actually, more a percussions gag than a number) - a journey is worth, too. The group there plays off their strengths with plainest stylistic devices.
Nothing for sound purists, but nice for adventurer.
