Eternal Tapestry - A World Out Of Time
The first few songs on "A World Out of Time" sound like a bunch of instruments talking at, rather than to, each other, or like one long coda to songs rather than the beginnings and middles. But don't be fooled. In the maelstrom, Eternal Tapestry carve out majestic, soaring slabs of sound. These are songs that begin on a peak and reach higher.
The key song is the six minute plus "Alone Against Tomorrow," which features that frenzied electric din with a killer groove hidden within. A true psychedelic classic if there ever was one. This is followed by the more mellow, but no less powerful "The Weird Stone,' which owes more than a little of its muted propulsion to the Velvet's first record.
There is a sort of mini trilogy feel to "When Gravity Fails," "The Currents of Space" and "Sand into rain," if only for the rain sound effects and wandering-in-wonder feel. "Sand," the closer, is the only track with vocals, and has a great acoustic Blind Faith/Airplane vibe.
The additional amplification to the usual brooding grandeur of Eternal Tapestry's signature sound works wonders here. "A World Out of Time" bristles with power as much as it further deepens the voyager wisdom at the heart of all their songs. There are a few tracks here that are among the best they have recorded, making this an absolute must have, and gives further evidence that we are in good hands by holding on to the band for their duration of their exploration.
