Got my CD from twisted today !
This album is fantastic !
Energetic and uplifting psychedelic heavy grooves of PsyDub / AmbiDub with some Space Rock flavours. These guys exploded on stage, shooting intense psychedelic and emotional beauty.
The new arrangements are excellent and well performed, and the new tracks are great as well and also well executed. It’s impossible not to groove along when listening to these fat delightful bass lines which Youth plays beautifully and to David Nock’s very energetic and dynamic drumming ( an excellent performance by this drummer ! electricity is one way to describe his performance, Nock and Youth are a strong and solid rhythm section ) and of course also to these warm sticky, fat and liquid synth textures and lead sounds which are manipulated in a masterful way by Posford and Ott alongside with the other electronic wonders by them as well, and beautiful luminous guitar work by Jackson and Posford that fits together with everything, in that twisted swirly way.
The production is top quality as always from twisted. Excellent mixing and mastering.
It’s always a pleasure to hear a well performed and produced Live album.
I don’t know how this performance really sounded to the people who were actually there, but the album sounds Great !
I have only one complaint and it’s not about the music.
The graphic design on the cover and back side is very nice and provides the basic info ( who did what and so on ) but the whole CD package in general is quite minimalistic ( and not in a good way ).
This is the first time a Live CD is coming out from twisted and it’s a recording from a very big event, so I think it was nice if a booklet was included with photos from the show and stuff, you know.. like photos of each band member in a cool groovy position from the show and in the bottom of the photo the info - Ott - Beats/Synths/Fx and so on..
and maybe a picture of all of them together performing on stage and a picture of the crowd.
Anyway, the music is wonderful !
Man, I wrote all that the day I got it, and still feel the exact same way about this album today. It’s simply so full of good vibes and groove !
