Hoffmann’s Kaleidoscope – Expiation of the Psychedelic Hunters Vol. I
Vincebus Eruptum / Perkele.It / ExLab – 2012
A few quick words about this massive collection of psychedelic awesomeness brought to you by Italian/English heavy rock magazine Vincebus Eruptum, Italian webzine Perkele.It and the friendly artists of Exlab. We normally pay little attention to compilation due to the fact that we are of opinion that most albums should be heard in its entirety. Which is a false assumption and very contradictory to the fact that I listen to loads of soundtracks and think some of them are absolutely brilliant. And this one called Hoffmann’s Kaleidoscope is as well! No less than twelve Italian psychedelic freaks have delivered a track to this compilation, which ranges from weird garage to trippy folk and acid doom. It swirls, it twirls, it weaves and it hunts. It dances and it floats and it bangs. It paints in a Day-Glo and leaves you dreaming of more! The absolute cream of the Italian kaleidoscopic underground!
