Charlie Hodgson Such a relaxing listen, I dare say vol. 2 is even better than the previous one. A few extra instruments in there with one track having a flute. Love the guitar sound throughout, the perfect album for late night listening to unwind after the stresses of the day. Also one thing I quite liked was the wallpapers included in the download of the real Astral Lizard. Favorite track: Where Does This Road Go.

Peter Jones Similarly to the original Astral Lizard album, this is far more chilled than, say, Orange Session or Thunders Of The Deep. Just relax and enjoy.

Nicolas M Stories of the Astral Lizard Vol. 1 was my favourite relaxing psychedelic album to listen to, until this one came out today! It is a bit heavier, the production is stellar and I love the folk elements. Favorite track: The Fourth Astral Projection.

Tbesla Sublime, just the perfect follow up, chill vibe just keeps flowing. If you're new to this band, pat yourself on the back you found one of the best bands this world has.
Be smiley.
Tbesla. Favorite track: Where Does This Road Go.

don_krouskop The only joy greater than waking up to discover this album had been released this morning is listening to it & losing myself in its serene brilliance. Favorite track: Astral Realm.

sunblood Comparing this one to Vol.1 it's maaaybe not as strong, but it's a great trip nonetheless.
May -some day- the lizard visit again. Favorite track: A Legend of Transparent Flowers.

After almost 6 years passed we start feeling the same vibrations like saying ‘isn’t it the right time to do such kind of jam again to see how much progress we made since then?’ In February 2020 Evgeniy Tkachev finally made it to Moscow from distant Siberia with his good old djembe drum and we were lucky enough to record a lot of new material in 4 days. By the way it’s worth mentioning that the song “Rusty Shuffle” was initially recorded for the album ‘Stories of the Astral Lizard vol.2’ but later was re-recorded with the full drum set and made it to the “Thunders of the Deep” album. All guitar parts, mandolin, effects and even some bass parts I recorded myself, more complicated bass parts were recorded by our incredible bassist Vladimir Kislyakov. The unique flute and clarinet player Maxim Dobromyslov participated as a guest as well. I’m curious what would you say discovering a clarinet sound in The Re-Stoned? Anyway it was a great feeling of magic in the studio. Of course, our new album transmits different feelings and vibrations comparing to the Part 1.
