5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album August 3, 2009
By Dave
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I've been listening to this album A LOT over the past month and can't believe there are no reviews yet. This album is a big improvement over their older stuff, the songwriting is better and the overall sound rocks out more. The harmonies are obviously heavily influenced by The Byrds but its the guitar playing that really makes this album. Reminds me quite a bit of Ride's "Nowhere" and The Morning After Girls are going for a similar sound. On songs like She's All I Need, All Fall Down and Let It Go they are really letting it rip, other songs feature are more melodic and acoustic. They're all great and the album hangs together very well. This is psychedelic rock done right.

5.0 out of 5 stars These Flowers ... by Jenell Kesler September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Asteroid No. 4 tripped me back to the mid 60's and the psychedelically mind bending release by The Chocolate Watch Band, where they not only delivered some spectacular music, but packaged the record with wrapped liner notes, written as a journal, of recording in a smokey drugged haze of thick Afghani Finger Hash, and assorted pills late into the night ... late into the recording session ... all while waiting on a mystical magical box ... a box that would not only release the music, set it all in order, but free the lads from their mortal coil, and allow them to roam the galaxies free and unbounded.

This idea of delivering a special package, one that evokes and blurs a hazy relationship between fact and fiction is difficult to do, the Stones did it with the 3D cover of Their Satanic Majesty's Request, and the Beatles certainly did it with Sgt. Pepper, leaving me wishing for more. I'm more then sure that Asteroid has never heard of The Chocolate Watch Band, but they do tie the album together with a great double gated package, trippy cover art, and fantastic liner notes that make it all the more worthwhile.

Legend: 2008 A.D. ... Across the marsh, it was hard to believe that civilization had ever existed at all, much less come and gone and was about to come again. And where the lake met the woods, a group of genteel woodsmen had dropped out completely, I mean, really dropped out and constructed for themselves a bucolic yet no less man made realm. Great white moonfruits grew outside of their laboratory ... You'll have to get the album to finish the rest, me [?], I was hooked.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Witchcraft Or Deviltry Here March 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sounding a bit reminiscent of their first CD ("Introducing..."), the heavily-fuzzed, delayed, whammied, and reverbed guitar lines on "My Love" the opening cut from this release, are joined by an acoustic passage that not only gives the track its universally wistful quality, but more deeply establishes Asteroid #4's roots in late 60's folkish psychedelia, which the band continues to mine for the entirety of "These Flowers Of Ours". Even when the guitarists lean heavily on their distortion pedals, the tone seems belong in that level bubble outside of contemporary technology, and within the confines of production techniques available to groups playing heavily amplified folk-rock during that decade.

And "These Flowers Of Ours" is a recording much less heavily modulated than "Introducing...", which, while cultivating a retro-psychedlic vibe, tended to embed it within more of a contemporary space-rock texture, channeling the sound through effects pedals that produced a sound-of-the-universe-expanding type of atmosphere. Maraccas, flute, harmonica,sleigh bells, haunting strings, and organ are all deployed on this recording, but the band seems more content to use them as flourishes rather than fully integrating them into the overall texture. "Hei Nah La" is the track that has the most direct connection to their debut, not only due its heavily processed guitar work, but also manner in which some the aforementioned exotic instrumentation is folded into the song, along with the sampled dialogue that closes it out. You're going to hear a lot of reverbed guitar and soaring vocal harmonies on this recording, with percussion that alternates between a dreamily atmospheric vibe and grooves that build toward grandiosity in a series of explosive crescendos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't recommend this enough! March 22, 2011
By Caleb
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across the song "She's All I Need" some time ago on a streaming radio station and fell in love with it. This was the album that got me started into the world of psych rock. Lush melodies, incredible sound textures, and great instrument playing make this album a stand-out record in my collection.

Every bit as good (if not better) than their previous effort - 'An Amazing Dream', see my review. It's been noted before that the last couple of Asteroid No. 4 discs sound a lot like songs from the late Syd Barrett archive. Every track here left me wanting more. For example "My Love" features some beautiful acoustic guitar playing, "Let It Go" resembles an undiscovered Syd Barrett composition (so much) featuring some killer harmonica playing, that you'll swear up and down it's a Barrett cover and the same goes with "She's All I Needed". Couple of other great songs this CD has to offer include "Hei Nau Lah", the shoegazing "She Touched The Sky" and the well-written "All Fall Down". Personnel: Scott Vitt-guitar & vocals, Eric Harms-guitar & bass, Aislim Van Kried-keyboards & vocals, Damine C. Taylor-bass and Adam Weaver-drums & vocals. Essential 21st century psychedelia. Very addictive.
