Product Notes

Sun-baked hombres Black Sun Ensemble, secluded in the desert scrub of Tucson, Ariz., celebrate their 20th anniversary and 11th album with a brain-numbing, nearly all-instrumental effort that effectively amalgamates the group's patented acid-raga excursions with influences ranging from ambient and world beat to British Invasion and progressive rock. Led by the fret wizardry of eccentric founder Jesus Acedo, the vastly underappreciated BSE resurrects patented hallucinogenic explosiveness on the hypnotically gyrating opener "The Shining One," where Acedo's distortion-ravaged, six-string manipulation rivals Hendrix and Eddie Hazel, the tune's Middle Eastern vibe capturing the hip-swerving sensuality of a Turkish belly dancer. On the peyote-fueled "Long Days Journey Into Tonight" Acedo's voracious axe-wrangling devours like a famished hyena tearing into a mortally wounded gazelle. Beyond the aural metaphors, synthesis of styles, exotic instruments and chemically damaged storytelling, though, BSE proves eternally cosmic-oblivious to complacency by relentlessly evolving it's spiritually infinite, ethnic-rock universe. - Ron Bally, Harp Magazine.
