9/10 Phil Staff review, 05 May 2011
In case you didn't know (and you more than likely didn't) Jack Allett is Spoono, who you may have heard of after previous releases on GPS and Blackest Rainbow. He's one of those man and guitar types who makes really intense ragas for you to get wasted to. I'm not sure why he's no longer Spoono and now Jack Allett but I guess that's not too important right now. if you were a fan of Spoono then you'll like this. It's great! Lots of whooshy psychedelic noises in the background over some really intense guitar plucking. 'Place, Memory And forgetting' is the really intense 21 minute track which will leave you mentally and physically exhausted afterwards. A couple of the tracks seem to borrow from the Towering Breaker project he did with Ben Knight from Helhesten. They're a bit more spacey and weird. The album ends with the jaunty upbeat 'Keep Crossing That Bridge And Never Tire' which is about as upbeat and positive as this kind of music gets. It's a really strong album which I think will get better on subsequent listens 'n all. Excellent!
