I had to pay $30 for an import copy of this, but is was worth every cent. Don't expect another "Dead Cities." FSOL don't live there anymore. This logically follows "Isness," but whereas the latter was more song-oriented, this is organized more along the lines of "Lifeforms" with ideas evolving into new ideas at a bewildering pace. Unbelievably spontaneous, yet crafted with meticulous, loving care throughout, "Alice" is almost impossible to describe: I heard Jerry Garcia, Axis-era Hendrix, Prokofiev, Curtis Mayfield, Bob Dylan (to name a few) and far more guitar and harmonica(!) than I ever expected to hear on an FSOL album. A lot of people are going to hate this album, I expect: every psychedelic and progressive rock device you can imagine, and some you can't, is thrown into the mix. Bear in mind that I've only listened to it once, but I found myself repeatedly looking at the "time remaining" and wishing it would never end, and I found it impossible to enjoy listening to anything else after it was over. This is a true tour-de-force in unbelievably eclectic psychedelia that you'll either love or hate. I suspect those who will love it will be those who are able to love the funky and the beautiful in music without making endless internal references to the ironical twists that "must" be buried somewhere deep within the music's "subtext." This is, I think, a playful, and at the same time extremely heartfelt homage to what, for many of us, (let's be truthful) was a fantastic time, and a gentle hint that such times can be again. It's humorous, serious, has uncountable moment's of incredible, unexpected beauty, and couldn't have been done by anyone other than FSOL.Read more ›

I love the CD, great music... better than the Otherness.

BUT, the CD has some very nasty, intrusive copy protection that causes 2 of 3 players I own not to play the disc correctly - The "Copy Control" website warns some car CD players may have trouble playing the disc, in my case it's the only player that will play the disc correctly. Also, if you attempt to listen on your PC the disc requires you to update your operating system! I couldn't get the disc out of my computer fast enough... No Way some company is updating my system files to play a CD.

I believe Sony had some issues with similar copy protection technology and ended up pulling the discs.

Lest anyone think this CD really sucks because of the one star of the previous reviewer, I thought I had better speak up for it. It is the best of the 3 A.A. CDs, full of wildly creative music on all, and beautiful vocals on a few, of the 14 tracks.

Personal faves are "the emptiness of nothingness", "the witchfinder", and "indian swing". The only track I find a bit grating at times is "the summertime of consciousness", with its rather stoned Sid Barrett-like sound, which I'm sure was intentional.

I highly recommend this CD, certainly one of the most interesting discs of 2005. Check it out!

Judging from the little media coverage and low number of Amazon reviews, one cannot but feel this is a gem covered in dust. I guess it's because this album doesn't cause instant amazement like previous FSOL albums do, but its consistent quality of organic psychedelia and playful silliness does reward repeated listeners like nothing else. Just tune in the non-stop cosmic flow in ultraland and enjoy.

well the second album of the new millenium from the FSOL boys falls right in line with 2002's masterpiece THE ISNESS. this time around theres a more straightfoward acid attack on the senses- starting with the dark side of the moon influenced piano piece- the emptiness of nothingness! Once again the mixing and production are incredible- so much going on without any sound clashes- how do they do it? This album differs only slightly from the prior record-still plenty of sitars and morphing organic electronics- more guitars and flutes- better vocals from both guests and the band.(high and dry almost sounds like a mick jagger vocal though thru a distortion box!) There seems to be more instrumental songs as well- so when theres singing the songs are more accessible but in that late sixties pyschedelic way. nothing as farout as the mello hippo disco show but track 13 is another floyd inspired stunner. And the albums closer the wicker doll mixes ominous analog scifi synth with trippy nature sounds flutes and other electronic wizardry. other highlights include all is harvest( a slow sixties styled triphop psychedlic guitar jam) indian swing and yes my brother which revisits the song from the last album. Its nearly as good as the isness but perhaps it seems more like part two than another leap foward. Still the sounds and production are amazing- the mix of live and cut performances rival what any band are doing now- never has the past been rewritten so creatively as the fsol duo have been doing over the last few years. Will hold the test of time and is highly recommended!! Ps- play loud and at night for maximum effect!!
