Like Halley’s Comet, after 30+ years spent traveling to other worlds, Brainticket’s Joel Vandroogenbroek is again lighting up the night sky. The year 2000 marked Brainticket’s return with Alchemic Universe, their first full-length LP in decades.
Fans expecting a replica of Brainticket’s early-’70s sound be warned however as Joel has not spent the past thirty years in a bubble.
The band has happily evolved to keep pace with the new millennium, while still managing to keep its kosmiche roots intact. While Joel performs musical duties (keyboards, synth, guitar, flute), a nice surprise is Carol Muriel (fans may remember her from Celestial Ocean) on vocals on several tracks.
Bonus CD features the full version of “Transformation Of A Stream,” as well as the originally intended track order.
