8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 28 April 2011

Never really sure what approach to take to MMOB. This multi-headed, multi-faceted beast of a psych rock orchestra dabble in or sorts of mythical and ethnic business whilst maintaining a reliably cult underground status. 'Totem Three' is the final installment of the Totem trilogy and sees the group taking what they need from Satyajit Ray, Tuareg music of the Sahara, Early Music, John Carpenter and the writings of french philosopher René Guénon, forging them into their own unique modern psychedelic rock vision. Definitely the most coherent of the three installations, 'Totem Three' features some truly awesome compositions. The arid, eastern drone meditations I'm sure you'll be familiar with by now ('Bardo Sidpa', 'Illuminating The Ten Directions') but it's the upbeat flavours like the ecstatic Kali Yuga inspired rock out ('In The Twilight Of Kali Yuga') and the Carpenter inspired 'Failed Future' that instantly stand out in the crowd. Reminiscent of the material recorded for Latitudes earlier this year, 'Failed Future' incorporates synths in an classic electronic soundtrack style (Goblin, Jan Hammer, Vangelis, Carpenter etc.) and suggests a possible new direction for the group. Kinda sounds like Mahavishnu Orchestra too, which is mint. 'Totem Three' features all sorts of bizarre instruments and guest appearances but you can read about that in the press release. All you need to know from me is that this is a cracking LP, possibly their best so far.
