Vibravoid – The Politics of Ecstasy (2012) review

Review of Vibravoid`s “The Politics of
Ecstasy” re-mastered 2 CD edition (Stoned Karma Records)
“The Politics Of Ecstasy” is a music
masterpiece recorded by German psychedelic rock trio Vibravoid and released in
2008. After five years, band releases re-mastered 2CD version of it. On the
first CD, there is the full version of this album, enriched with some live and
demo tracks, previously unreleased. Very rare album “Phasenvoid” found it`s
place on CD2. With these albums, band from Dusseldorf takes the listener to
those places, where only good music can take to.
Journey starts with album-named title track
“The Politics of Ecstasy” which slowly introduces the album atmosphere provided
by modern sound inspired by classic, psychedelic rock music. “Doris Delay”
gives a boost of energy and confidence, that represents band`s innovativeness
and modern approach to genre. However, retro sounding album and live versions
of “Incense And Peppermints” brings the band back to the roots of psychedelic
rock, making their music timeless. Dedicated to Joseph Beuys, famous German
artist from their hometown Dusseldorf, song “Playing with Beuys” shows the
band`s contemporary views to their creativity. Demo and live versions are also
available on this CD. Relaxing “Late As A Morning” which initially was released
as the B-side of “Doris Delay” single, got its place as the bonus track on this
re-issue. Album also contains of remarkable “Your Mind Is At Ease” that really
acts as a remedy, encircling the atmosphere of ecstasy and proves that
Vibravoid is one of the top European psychedelic rock bands of 21st century.
Second CD takes us back in time to 2003
when band released their ultra-rare album “Phasenvoid”. Starting with “Void
vibrato” and following with “Minddecision”, “Bellflight” and “Microvoid”, band
rocks the minds off with these modern sounding, retro psychedelic tracks.
Unique and phenomenal “Journey To the Center Of The Sun” – will definitely take
you there! CD also contains two rare songs – “Meditation Endstation” and
“Phasenvoid”, as well as live versions of “Ballspeaker” and “Vivid Vision” from
their first two albums – “2001” and “Void Vibration”. Story ends with 30
minutes live version of previously unreleased, mind-blowing “Mother Sky” from
Burg Herzberg Festival 2011.
This double CD release, reflects
Vibravoid`s musical creativity and brings back memories from good old days of
sixties and seventies, when artists mixed their studio, demo and live tracks on
the same edition in order to get the audience closer to the diversity of sound
and manner of expression.
Two great albums with previously unreleased
demo and live versions of their songs, all together mixed and mastered on
analogue vintage equipment from the seventies, guarantee full pleasure to any
psychedelic rock mind hungry for fantastic music journey.
