Format: Audio CD
I have to admit that Acid Mothers Temple and all the varying names they come up with might not be the most consistent psychedelic space rock group out there, because they release so much stuff (not to mention members coming and going) and not afraid to show both their weak and strong points. I felt at their worst, they can drone on for 40 minutes and can get tedious (making you wish Kawabata Makoto would put some restraint on his guitar playing) (although I heard some of their 40 minute plus jams and drones that do work), at their best, they can deliver some of the wildest and finest psychedelia ever. Do you think psychedelic bands from the 1960s would feature a guitarist like Kawabata Makoto? Of course not! Just remember if you thought the guitar playing of Ed Wynne of Ozric Tentacles was wild, Kawabata Makoto's guitar playing gives Ed a run for his money, plus he loves to experiment with feedback and distortion, while Ed's guitar playing is more like Steve Hillage on speed (and as any Ozric fan knows, Ed doesn't experiment with feedback and distortion). This group is all over the place, releases I've heard had been heavily influenced by the Krautrock scene (like Ash Ra Tempel, Amon Duul I and II, etc.), other releases that were in the Gong and Ozric Tentacles vein (most particularly Iao Chant, which is an hour long take on Gong's "Master Builder"), others like Hawkwind, others not reminding me of any particular group. Occasionally the band's Japanese roots show in, so don't be surprised if on an occasional release you hear shakuhachi (bamboo flute) or koto, or Buddhist chanting. Minimalism is also an influence, does help when they have their own version of Terry Riley's In C.Read more ›

First two tracks here "E.S.P." and "40000000000 Love Hotel" are quite painful (and annoying) ti sit through. Rest assure, this CD does get better. Main reason I'm giving it a four-star rating is because I believe the good songs on this CD manage to out-weigh the bad songs, by far. As it turns out 'Are We Experimental?' has several cuts that I liked very much. For example, the solid Hendrix-like rocker "Weird Stink P***y Lover", the quite experimental "Close Encounters Of The Electric C Spirits", the jazzy "Goodbye Big ***hole Emmanuelle" and the all-too short two-minute "Hallelujah Music Garden". Plus, I got something good out of the eight-minute Hendrix tribute "Ultimate Unhip Blues". Must say that this CD takes the experimental genre to the point of no return. Imagine, if you can - Frank Zappa fronting the JImi Hendrix Experience. Yeah, I know - strange - but great to trip out on.

I love AMT, but I tend to prefer their epically long tracks over these types of collections of shorter ones. That said, AMT makes albums, not singles, so this still is a fairly fun and cohesive experience.
