Format: Audio CD
It's been a whole three years since The Isness, and everyone's now used to the fact that Dougans and Cobain are indulging their interest in psychedelia, prog rock, funk and folk, so Alice In Ultraland is a far less surprising album than its predecessor. The group have even signed onto the classic Harvest label (Floyd, Deep Purple and so on) and seem keen on letting you know by whacking the label logo on the front and designing the CD as one of Harvest's old vinyl labels. Perhaps they're hoping the album will fit seemlessly next to Atom Heart Mother in everyone's record collection.
Atom Heart Mother is actually not a bad comparison point to half of the tracks here, which are neither truly progressive rock, but far less wacky than true psychedelia. They've also infused far more obvious blues and funk influences. The most successful is The Prophet (which may be familiar to those who heard one of the many incorrect versions of The Isness, as Yes My Brother), which is a Miles Davis infused jazz funk piece, complete with wah guitar, bubbling organs and liquid bass. The name Yes My Brother returns here, in the form of a bluesy acoustic track complete with crazy lalala vocals.
Elsewhere on the album, things resemble The Isness a little more. Whilst Indian Swing is the only piece reminiscent of that record's endless sitar textures, the album does feature more traditional songs: In The Summertime Of Consciousness mixes Syd Barrett-like lyrics and vocals with Indian flute and jazz sax in a short burst of choas that deserves to be heard; first single , the Led Zeppelin-like The Witchfinder features Dave Sanderson on vocals; High & Dry is the nearest thing to a traditional pop song the group have written.

I think the title of the review says it all. Haters beware: you are not going to like this...
It took around 8 years for the previous AA album to go from concept to reality. The painstaking process that they went through to create that masterpiece was well worth the effort because it is one of the finest records to ever have been made. This one, however, has a slightly different agenda. 4 years in the making make this record seems 'rushed' in comparison.
On receipt of this record is where the dissapointment begins, and i haven't even opened it yet. As ever, the artwork is stunningly beautiful. It is a joy to behold, but there is something missing. Where the previous album was packaged in a remarkable engineered box, corners seem to have been cut with this one. There is no engineering and there is a frustrating green record company label in the lower right hand side that does no justice to the artwork. Why on earth did the FSOL boys allow this? And that's not the half of it. When you lift the CD out of its case, underneath it is a message about how to acquire ringtones. BLOODY RINGTONES! After the incredibly high standards set by the previous record, you would think this one would come close or better it, but it dissapoints in that respect. Why am i getting so worked up about this? It is only a box after all. But this is half the fun of the record. It enhances the listening experience. First impressions last and it has already tainted the listening experience for me.
Anyway, the music.
Musically, the album is not disimilar to the prior AA outing. It is a remarkable world they have created, which is what the FSOL always aim to do with every record they have ever made.

This is a superb album providing rich, mind expanding harmonies with some great tracks. 'Billy The Onion' and 'In the Summertime..' are masterful with Floyd esq harmonic structures. The bassline in 'Billy the Onion' could cut through on a dance floor with a beefy rising scalic idea. Lovely flutes and acoustics blended well with electronic soundscapes.

Personally prefered there previous techno/ambient instrumental albums: Accelerator, Lifeforms, Tales Of Ephidrina, Isdn, Dead Cities; before going all prog-rock experimental from The Isness album onwards...It now seems Fsol have decided to stay with this 'prog-rock/experimental' again! Pity!

This has got to be one of the best musical albums in the world for me, my fave songs are The Witchfinder, in fact there are about 10 songs on that are my favourites so shan't list them all lol, very psychedelic, chill out, and mystical, it's beautiful

Sometimes you just don't "get" an album at first. I was rating this as 1 star compared to earlier releases. But you know what ? after the occasional listen over the years I've come to spot the genius in this album !! It just passed me by in 2005.
