    There's some fine playing on this set, as on the exuberant 15-minute work-out Djanfa Moja, but the bass lines on Nightwalk or the bluesy Waide Nayde make the band sound unexpectedly predictable, despite Camara's remarkable solos; two of the best tracks are taken from the bass-free Trance Sessions

    This is a brilliantly ambitious, exploratory recording that captures the pure, powerful vibe of a great ensemble.

    Three of the tracks pass the 13-minute mark, but not a second is wasted. [Aug. 2011, p. 100]

    The result is furiously syncopated, no-holds-barred rock made marvellously strange by Camara's squawking fiddle and invocatory singing.

    They now sound more like a band that has really found its own voice. Recording live in the studio in as few takes as possible also seems to have given them a new edge.

    The essence of the music might be simple but the band squeezes remarkable emotions from it. The new world order of psychedelia is here.

    It's an intense, at times crazed live-in-studio session. [Aug 2011, p.104]
