Vibravoid is a dedicated group of Cosmonauts from Dusseldorf, Germany, and this is their second full-length voyage into a cool psychedelic world in which you may well indeed want to live full time. If you fiend for the hallucinogenic good stuff as much as these guys do, that is.
This go ‘round, Vibravoid sets down a more rockin’ vibe than past efforts, while incorporating the 60s-ish smooth edge that they do so well. ‘Black and White’ is a good sample of things to come, with its clean vocals, mid-eastern modalities, and organ reminiscent of Rick Wright on Floyd’s ‘Saucerful of Secrets.’ ‘Creepy People’ has an understated spy movie groove, clothing its social critique in a smooth, creamy vibe that lulls you into a trance until the guitars and theramin (!) come crashing in mid-song. This could easily fit on an early Porcupine Tree LP. ‘Adjustment’ has a Spiritualized, shoe-gazing feel shared by the last song on side one, ‘Echovoid.’ ‘Vivid Vision’ is the most hard rocking song on the LP, and is most reminiscent of Hawkwind or early Bob Calvert, say about the time of 1974’s ‘Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters.’ ‘Void Vibration’ finishes you off with an ever-building tremolo trance filled out with lots of synth washes. - Kevin McHugh (Hellridemusic.com)
