Prepare to enter the most mindblowing mystical experience. Two side length tracks into the inner sanctum, guided by the unrivalled spiritual genius of Kosmische Musik--Florian Fricke. The first track is an esoteric and ancient mystery cult initiation into the shamanic secrets of the cradles of civilization, floating down an endless river with African and Turkish percussion and the serene and crystalline sounds of a Fender Rhodes. The second track is the most powerful recording of all time: deafening percussion and church organ echo off of the vaults of the cosmic cathedral. Words simply fail me. Awe-inspiring.
