It seems that FSOL have been inspired by Space Time Continuum to make Cascade.

Spacetime Continuum teamed up with psychedelic guru Terence McKenna for ALIEN DREAMTIME, and at first, it seems like a amalgamation of early-90s ambient: didgeridoo, slow acid lines, a meandering and nasal spoken word, subdued beats. It's important to remember, though, that this was a live event, and McKenna uses it as a lecture (or for "Speaking in Tongues," which is just as strange as it sounds). Of course, this somewhat diminishes the importance of the music, so when McKenna takes a break, such as on "Transient Generator," Spacetime Continuum lets his own psychedelic experience come to the fore. "Aerobatic," similarly, has the Detroitian warmth and sparkle that Sharp would develop further on his later albums. "Timewave Zero" goes on a bit too long, but eventually washes over the listener. The album needs more dreamtime, less alien.

Timewave Zero is awesome! Impatient listeners will probably be disheartened when the music comes to a halt in the middle, but it ends like a novel. McKenna's speech borders on knowledgable to bull honky, but very uniquely nasal and characteristic of him. Sharp uses his trademark sounds that are a precursor to Sea Biscuit. I still would never smoke DMT if it made me talk like McKenna, though. The album is of course meant to be listened from beginning to end, but the journey is rather enjoyable throughout.
