Classic Album Review: Sianspheric | The Sound of the Colour of the Sun

The Ontario space-rock foursome crank the amps to maximum thrust once again.

101

This came out in 2001 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


Take your protein pill and put your helmet on — sonic star warriors Sianspheric have launched their next mission to infinity and beyond.

On the aptly titled third full-length The Sound of the Colour of the Sun, the Ontario space-rock foursome once again crank the amps to maximum thrust, set the pedals to warp factor 10 and blast straight into the stratosphere in search of the Big Bang. Along the way, they slowly space-walk through vast, glowing galaxies of light, venture wordlessly headlong down wormholes of magnetic noise and emerge into noisy blistering solar systems of white-hot supernova star-crunch. Yes, they are floating in a most peculiar way — and the stars do look very different today.
