I don't really want to be too hard on this because the band responsible for it are clearly in the throes of a fifteen year psychological meltdown.

I don't really want to be too hard on this because in 2002 the band responsible for it released an album called “41st Century Splendid Man.”

I don't really want to be too hard on this because in 2004, the band responsible for it released an album called “Does the Cosmic Shepherd Dream of Electric Tapirs?”

I don't really want to be too hard on this because in 2007, the band responsible for it released an album called “41st Century Man Splendid Man Returns.”

I don't really want to be too hard on this because any band with the stones to steal from the back catalogues of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Doors quite as blatantly as this one has, is going to need all the friends it can muster when Bonham, Grant, Barrett and Morrison rise from the grave and come a knockin' one cold and misty night.

If you like weird, spazzed out psychedelic space rock, seek out the self-titled Cosmic Dead album I reviewed a few weeks ago, because, alongside the myriad of other reasons to recommend it, it's significantly less likely to incur the wrath of a reanimated John Bindon.
