Format: Audio CD
After giving this release a few listens, I have to say it is one of the most interesting new things I have heard in a while. With so much currently released music just a retread of something I'm old enough to have experienced 20-30 years ago, it's refreshing to find a group that are trying to push a few boundaries.

I can't really think of much to compare this to. It seems closest in spirit to the mad collage of 'The Faust Tapes' or the experimental sides of 'Tago Mago', or in TV terms something like 'Children of the Stones'. The overall experience is like entering the state between being awake and asleep where real things acquire a dreamlike haze.

Certainly anyone wanting a CD of tunes is going to be disappointed, but if you have a mild obsession with '60s and '70s childrens' TV, horror film soundtracks and electronica, this could be up your street.

It's true that apart from a couple of sections, nothing in this winds up into anything you could call a song as such, but there is a strangely evocative feel to the piece. It sounds like nothing less than someone's (slightly spooky) subconscious, which to me is the essence of psychedelia (as opposed to blues played through a wah-wah). I hope to hear more like this.

An LSD-fueled seance conducted by telepathic witches who use sex to contact the dead... ...looping ghost patterns shifting about in the whisper-haunted branches of an ancient gallows tree... ...a hypnotic village chant, evoking strange memories of things that never happened... ...night-time visions of colours that don't yet exist...

These are some of the images evoked by this album. It's a message from beyond the grave, an occult vibration freak-out, a patchouli-scented whisper in the dark. Just turn the lights down low, switch off your mind and dive into this wonderful slice of beautiful psychedelic witchcraft.

Broadcast & the Focus Group

WOW! What can be said - this is amazing! I admit to being new to Broadcast's sounds, let alone in collaboration with The Focus Group, and it seems to have stirred some negative reaction with one reviewer here (I've just acquired the whole set of Broadcast albums from a friend, so will listen to them & review them also), but I must say that this has been (on first listen) a total audiological treat. Though there are indeed 23 tracks (see below for listing), these merge seamlessly into several greater parts, leaving us with between 3 to 5 bigger pictures (albeit a plethora of strange dreamy images fused together, rather than songs in a more conventional or commercial sense). As with any dream, however, the storyline (by the very nature of its `unreality') can change seemingly without concord or reason; that works perfectly here, leaving the viewer (it feels like I'm `watching' the music unfold in a trippy, dreamy, psychedelic way). This reminds me of the KLF's `Chill Out' album or Trance Tripping (nothing to do with `trance' music per-se, rather a long session at the hypnotherapists or a lie-down on the psychiatrist's couch or, as the piece intends, the closest thing to actually taking acid without actually doing so) - both available at Amazon. To quote A.P. Wheway: "It sounds like nothing less than someone's (slightly spooky) subconscious, which to me is the essence of psychedelia"... precisely. Not wanting to overly repeat what has already been said by other reviewers, let me just add that the female vocals are beautifully ethereal, like most of the set, and there isn't a single dud track! Speaking of which, here's that list:
1 Intro/magnetic tales 0.39
2 The be colony 4.32
3 How do you get along sir? 1.11
4 Will you read me 1.
