    Burning Mountains plays like a kind of indignant opus, composed within proximity to the epicenter of a psychotropic maelstrom.

    A band that started with Can's hypnotic propulsion has ended up floating in Tangerine Dream's weightless free formity, but it's gorgeous stuff.

    The A List of Burning Mountains performance is a stand-out LP, which shows a pleasing growth of confidence to expand beyond the confines of hyphen-rock.

    As big and bold as it can sound, there's little here that's especially flashy or blatantly attention-seeking.

    A frequently harmless, occasionally dangerous, and mostly curious album of oscillating noise drones and arryhytmic, spasmodic drumming.

    It's an immersive, oddly soothing pit stop of a record for these stubborn stalwarts of experimental rock, perhaps just a quick rest after their delightfully unchecked ambitions spawned triple records and 12-hour improvisational sets.

    The whole record is all skittering drums never finding their place, and shivering synths that drift in search of a landing pad. [No. 94, p.58]
