The 1st song is mellow, trippy, reminiscent of a 60's Grateful Dead jam. 2nd song is grating, harsh fuzz. 3rd starts with a trippy intro, then 4 mins in moves into a Black Sabbath-esque stunner with great vocals. 4th is a slow burner, good. 5th is a folk acoustic style, complete with thunder, rain, and breaking waves. Last song - the first half builds to all consuming psychadelic riffage and guitars, but the second half does lose its way. Overall, this LP has a lot to offer, you will like. Master of Alchemy
