Being a huge fan of Voivod it was only a matter of time before I checked out Kosmos. I had read about this band that featured drums by Voivod's Michel Langevin (aka Away) and how the album was dedicated to the memory of Voivod guitarist Piggy. However, Kosmos is not Voivod. Rather, what we have here is atmospheric, cosmic, psychedelia. If Hawkwind and Pink Floyd were creating music in 2007 with the same attitude towards writing they had in the 60's, I imagine this is what it might have sounded like. Much of the music here is instrumental, but vocals are added here and there. "Amerique Innavouable" features the vocals all sang in French. Overall, Komos are an interesting listen, but they are deinitely mood music for me.
