    Lovingly named after Rod Serling's cult post-Twilight Zone program and, in all intents and purposes, is just as thrilling.

    Though it is one long cut, Night Gallery is free of noodling or self indulgence; it proves that acid jam is alive and well in the hands of the right musicians.

    Night Gallery honors nicely the propulsive sound so cherished by Krautrock dedicatees, who dominate the noise scene now: the sound of motoring down the freeway, knowing you've crossed that limit point, even though missed the actual crossing.

    There are bum notes, and rhythms that wander. But Eternal Tapestry and Sun Araw mesh well. When they hit a groove, they're a match made in a UV lamp-lit and sage-scented stoner-rock heaven.

    As I said, there is nothing really to fault, at least superficially, with Night Gallery, but it just never builds on the decent ingredients at play. It's simply far too easy to forget once you've heard it.

    There are plenty of moments where everything clicks, with Sun Araw's dayglo-acid guitar skirling over motorik rhythms and hubble-bubble analogica. But these don't on their own justify its existence, alas. [Oct 2011, p.84]
