Mos Eisley Spaceport - Further

This band learned and benchmarked well. And after some line-up changes within the band, this band come over with a new sound and style.

In a psycho-progressive manual environment, 'Ashes to Ashes' gravitates in a vintage orbit where hints of blues emerge amid its proposal of classic rock. Executed smoothly, the track slowly moves towards a more impactful setting. With elaborate progressive developments, the German band reminds us of those enticing seventies vibrations. Functioning as a whole, the passages featuring retro organ particularly stand out, evoking moments akin to bands like DEEP PURPLE without sounding similar overall. Constant meandering enriches a lengthy but highly appealing song.


'Drop Out' contrasts with the previous track due to the dynamism of riffs and melodies that unabashedly dive into the waters of 70s retro rock. Maintaining that spirit intact, the song is guided by the effective sound of the organ, accompanied by good vocal melodies and a solid rhythm. The vintage sound party unleashes itself unabashedly once again.


Returning to the ten-minute songs, 'Space Shift,' despite having more experimental elements, presents a bacchanal of retro vibrations. The power of that diabolical organ blows my mind once more. With a touch of Purplelian essence, the vibrant track seems to lean towards more contemporary sounds in an always pleasant and successful combination. In the second half, the song descends into a fascinating psycho-progressive environment where the guitar sound perfectly complements the organ passages, the true engine of the band.


In a darker and heavier tone, 'Raised by a Lioness' flirts with blues and boogie rock with an attractive and captivating proposal that quickly invites the listener to revel and dance. Away from conventionality, these guys have their own formula to captivate us without falling into the conventions of retro bands.


'Cocaine Blues' holds its ground with punchy riffs and a fun rhythm where blues-rock merges with 70s progressive hard rock. Its catchy melody and robust instrumentation do the rest in another naturally vintage character track.


Almost like a continuation of the previous song, 'Laika' maintains the hard-prog essence of the Germans with stoner touches and constant nods to vintage vibes of the last century. A fun track executed with a stunning frenzy. The interplay of choruses makes the track smooth in its journey through this psycho-prog scenario, where each song gradually plunges.


Without substantially changing the script, 'Scattle Cat' seems to let the band be carried away by fuzz and vibrant proto-stoner sounds. Murky dynamics and with enough hook to buzz to its feet, the song somehow stands out from the rest of the tracks with a more contemporary sound. Nevertheless, its core contains that magical elixir that makes MOS EISLEY AIRPORT songs sound like they were composed decades ago. Here, cosmic elements emerge more vividly until plunging us into a stunning sonic chaos.


If most of the album consists of lengthy songs, 'Laika II' serves as the counterpoint with its three minutes. A breath of almost devotional sounds that contrast with the majority of the songs. Celestial choirs and atmospheric instrumentation are the arguments this time in a track that, in some way, leans towards symphony.


'I'm a Robot Dancer' brings calm to a vibrant and fun album with more colorful and floral tones. A gentle tempo and a vocal melody that increases the tone construct another vintage song that provides a breath of fresh air to a remarkable album.
