This is one of those rare records that’s impossible to clearly categorise, such is its uniqueness. The quality of the sound production and musicianship is astonishing. This is a masterpiece.

Absolutely magnificent album. I can't say that I'm deeply into Free Jazz, so I don't have a lot of experience with other releases in this genre, but Universal Consciousness grabs a hold of me every time I put it on. A friend of mine once described the music on this gem as "played by a band of which the musicians collectively forgot how to play a note and simply decided to make as much damn noise as possible". I understand what he means, but still: there's a profound, slightly mysterious, urgent and fascinating atmosphere hidden in the -seemingly- uncontrolled hammering away of complex compositions. For me, it also "sounds" incredibly seventies, even though the release is from 1971 and the decade still had to unfold. Let me just say that, once you decide to submerge yourself in the music of Universal Consciousness, you'll experience an endless slideshow of unexpected landscapes in your mind; one that begins with track one and ends with the last title. This is one to take in one sitting. You'll feel refreshed afterwards.
