Mah-Ze-Tar

Liquid Lotus (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This single bears the same title and cover as the album from which it comes. This was released as sort of the preview for the album. I've reviewed that album in this issue of Music Street Journal and the track review here comes from that one for the sake of consistency. Let's just say here that this song has a lot of traditional Indian music in the mix, but it is one of the more mainstream pieces of the set. That really makes it a great choice for lead single.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Liquid Lotus
I love the lush and rich buildup at the start of this. There are some cool melodic vocals built into this. Some of the overlayers bring a definite space rock, prog edge to the proceedings. As it makes its way toward trippy progressive rock based stuff, there are vocals in English. This is accessible, energized and so cool. It works out to a cool instrumental section further down the road. Eventually they make their way back out to more stuff tied to the song proper to eventually take it to its close.
