This excellent band from Norway are reviving the late 60´ psychedelic/ spacerock with a twist!! To this old proghead that is pure joy !! Back to the roots is never a bad thing in my book, especially in the hands of Professor Tiptop !! As I never have heard of them before, I had to check out the cover for release date, since I really felt like I was back in the late 60 while listening. Sure and surprisingly enough these four musicians are very much in the present and delivering beautiful music were it from the past !! It is brilliant and often wonderful, any old school proghead (like yours truly) will love this album.
You know what they say: " The only time machine in our universe is music" and this great outing proves just that, from the present to the past and back !! What more do you want?!
Just dont expect thundering drums, hysteric vocals and screaming guitars !! This is music designed to soothe you, created to make you smile with joy, delivered with such finesse and talent, that you..as I did...really wanna go back in time, to that particular period of music and style...and presto ..at the push of the replay button..you can !!
One of the biggest surprises of this year, for me !! Certain passages reminded me of Pink Floyd in their "MORE" period !! Highly recommended to anyone who nodded happily during this review !! The Professor really are TIPTOP !!
