Dr Crookall is a sell out. He is clearly rehashing the same stuff now in this, his 18th studio album. Each one has got progressively more self-indulgent and with 201 tracks, the 48 minidiscs it takes to fit it all on in is, quite frankly, too many. I know we had to wait over two years since his previous release but when Astral Projection 649 is clearly just AP:284 with the lyrics altered slightly, you know that your creativity is not what it once was.
That said, their live shows are still a joy to behold. Their recent show playing Case Book of Astral Projection 340 to 408 was one of the best weekends of my life.
