Siena Root – Different Realities (2009)(320 kb/s)

In days of old, the ancients spoke of records made of vinyl that played on both sides. Strangely, you had to get up and turn them over before placing a little needle in their grooves. Back in days of yore, bands knew of nothing else and wrote music to fit each side so that you didn’t get a break in the middle of a great solo or worst. Quaint huh?
Stockholm’s Siena Root has a perfect understanding of this concept and have produced an album which, despite arriving on a single sided piece of plastic, is perfectly divided into two parts, or two Different Realities, actually.
Different Realities is the fourth studio album from the jam,hippy hardrockers from Sweden. The first side ‘We’ (25.33) is divided into four tracks and the second ‘The Road To Agartha’ (25.37) has six. The result, after a years worth of work, is a fantastic, mind numbingly effective, trip out through hippyville, the East, and beyond.
Formed in the late nineties Siena Root has released three previous albums the last being the impressive Far From The Sun. Since then the rotating vocalist position has moved round again with the latest change leading to an album made up largely of excellent instrumental. -kept reading in blogcritics.
