Motorpsycho – The All Is One

Motorpsycho – The All Is One
Stickman Records / Rune Grammofon – 2020
Rock, Prog
Rated: *****

Almost all of the Motorpsycho albums have always been one long trip; filled with tension arcs that demand exploration, devotion and adoration. The new record The All Is One is no different and probably takes it all to the next level. The Norwegian trio just keeps on delivering records, double albums and EP’s that stagger the imagination with the sheer amount of creativity and musicality displayed. They seem to have an unending hunger for creating and what’s so amazing is that in the odd thirty years they have been around and the almost twenty-five albums they delivered, there is not a bad one between them. The All Is One is the final piece in a trilogy that started with The Tower back in 2017. Filled with long winded yet highly entertaining jams, rock tracks that have this intense pop side and rock that shimmies up against folk and prog. The biggest effort though is heard in a piece of art, a five pieces, piece of art. Five pieces make up the ending N.O.X section and gives us forty minutes of brilliant prog rock and a multitude of melodic themes. Fresh and vital sounding meandering sections of strings and almost otherworldly compositions, sounding so effortlessly and so unabashedly musical and precise. And unendingly inspirational; it will make you dream and it will make you want to create…
