some of the most satisfying acoustic drone ever made. albeit this belongs in the category of spaced out hippie free collective improvisation, but its sophistication and superior craft tower over thousands of imitators. it is not lazy like so many others in this vein, but rather full of ideas and invention. yes tantric buddhist chant and avant classical and rock'n'roll (in the loosest of loose definitions) CAN fuse into an incredible cosmic consciousness "thing". and yes it can be exhilarating and wonderful and soul nourishing. this is the stuff of legends.
there are other recordings by this sprawling commune of an outfit, and many solo outings by prominent violinist Takehisa Kosugi worth seeking out.
