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.
Return 07:17
Run 03:14

"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.
