The Review:

Croatian instrumental band Seven That Spells returns with their second album for the Russian label RAIG, It Came From The Planet of Love This time around the band focuses on two long pieces. Just like the debut, the music is based in a psychedelic jam rock format, which pays homage to the late 60's-early 70's psych/prog scene. There is some slight differences in the approach to the music this time around where the instrumentation has a more laid back feel, still similar in many ways to Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd and the more recent band, Ozric Tentacles and The First Band From Outer Space to name a few.

The first track clocks in at 30 minutes where as the second is just over 20 minutes. Some parts of these songs captivate me while others seem to drag on way too long. As I said in my review of My Mommy Wants To Kiss Your Momma , Id like to hear the band scale down their music to more concise compositions. I fell this band can use the improv meandering for their live shows (if any). If you enjoyed the previous release as well as modern jam based psych/prog, then you have to add It Came From The Planet of Love to your music collection today!
