Much-anticipated fourth studio album from Australian psychedelic rock merchants Dreamtime. Inspired by the sounds of late Sixties/early Seventies jams and Kosmiche Musik, on Tidal Mind the Brisbane four-piece focuses on maritime themes. Consequently, this latest effort sounds much more fluid and peaceful than previous outings.

Dreamtime are yet another psych rock band from Australia. Where are they all coming from? There's a few things that set Dreamtime apart though. They ain't all that new as this is their forth album and they have a more proggy, dreamy sound that pranksters like King Gizzard and Porn Crumpet. They are mining a particularly dreamy (correct choice of name then) form of drawn out progressive rock that brings to mind the lines of Sun Dial and Porcupine Tree.
Initially these tracks aren't dissimilar to the Church with their jangling guitars and vocals which sound uncannily like Steve Kilbey but there is a heavy use of wibbly synth drones and even more wibbly guitar exploration which brings to mind the space rock of early the Verve. The lyrics when you can hear them are ridiculous especially on Emerald Sea..sample lyric "gardens of neptune suspended timelessly in warm sapphire"
They plod mid-paced throughout the record with their heavy, churning sound. On tracks like Tidal Mind they come across like post Barrett Pink Floyd - the vocals now strangely like Dave Gilmour which leads to the sort of grandiose wig out that they spend the first half of the record avoiding. Drifting sci fi influenced space rock then - not my scene particularly but I enjoyed taking a trip with them.
