Thus some tracks bear unexpected turns and they are covering the complete space rock spectrum here featuring diverse guitar style variations. In place of the heavier parts the album starts reminiscent of Hawkwind, compact, provided with straightforward garage rock appeal. The following Decode The Glow is more kinda groovy and mellow though. Diverse keyboard stuff comes to the fore time after time. Let me point out the restless Tr?n where one can detect the melancholic mellotron, preferably used by nordic bands. And later typical synths also provide some Ozric Tentacles feeling. Moreover I want to remark the lively drumming - Viktor Martin perfectly fits.
The powerful Fire It Up! stands for the band's dynamic as no other, ?ly?k Kok Friebib by way of change showcases a long weird outro dominated by somewhat quirky/spooky synths. Later they are keen on praying the Space Rock Dogma including a nicely floating electric piano and mellotron duet. SEID save a really magnifique song until last - I mean the title track. The arrangement reflects the album's essence. It starts with powerful straight rock featuring sing along qualitities - will move the crowd during their gigs for sure - and then turns to a groovier behaviour which even shows some improv appeal. Something for everyone who's familiar with the space rock genre. Supported by a bunch of friends on vocals and wind instruments SEID offer an interesting new album in 2012 - 3.5 stars.
