What Cloudland Canyon excel at is preparing the listener with swirling ambience filtered through an all-out psychedelic freak-out backdrop a la Acid Mothers Temple, at their more slower, calmer moments. Like their brethren, the equally magnificent Titan, it's cheekily borrowing the best of krautrock; Amon Duul II et al. What with the German song titles. What if the psychedelic music of Spaceman 3 were sped up, then slowed down?
