darwin One can never go wrong with Re-Stoned, even though this is a pretty much a re-hash of "Return to the Reptiles", it's nice to have them back. Favorite track: Flying Clouds.

Peter Jones With Sleeping World this release has a continuity joining the old to new. The wider sonic palette being used is interesting and I'm looking forward to what comes next..!

The (re-recorded?) Return is a wonderful opener and Flying Clouds - with heavy compression on the pounding drums and with screeching guitars - nearly got the top spot...

Sharp Fire On The Hill is a wonderful dyed in the blood The Re-Stoned jam. Favorite track: Sleeping World.

Jonathan The Russian group, The Re-Stoned, plays top shelf psychedelic rock. And their latest offering, "Reptiles Return," pulls no psychedelic punches. Reverb, fuzz, and killer grooves and guitar riffs combine to melt the brain. This is the very best Acid Rock, up there with Earthless, and deserves the widest possible tripped-out audience.5 out of 5 Peyote buttons. Highly recommended for all fans of psych/stoner Rock. Favorite track: Return.

"Reptiles Return"- vinyl release of 8 tracks LP (Clostridium Records - CR 022) and 10 tracks on limited edition CD-R with "Reptiles" BOX Set (Rushus records - RR 03). This time the Grandmaster of this Moscow psychedelic fuzz orchestra Ilya Lipkin and associates made an attempt to rethink the legacy of the primal days of the band - the very first EP "Return to the Reptiles" with one track remixed, two - re-recorded a new and two more - remastered. The new album also includes new songs (4 in vinyl version and 6 in digital) covering more broad sonic space - acoustic pieces and psychedelic soundscapes which have been composed and recorded over the period of the last three years. "Reptiles Return" is a good appetizer for those fans tired of waiting for the brand new double LP due to release in the nearest future.
