"Kudos to the Menimals – this is one you’ll remember. 9/10"
gashouseradio.com

"When you listen to this album you get it...This is an album to escape into and live through…it is an album that grows.”
www.backseatmafia.com

“This has been one of the most enjoyable (and at times uncomfortable) albums I have listened to in a while. It fills me with absolute joy that there is music out there that still makes me feel like this.”
heathenmofoblog.wordpress.com

"The record is quiet but not ambient, more necromantic than psychedelic, very distinctive and damn hard to describe."
thequietus.com

“I've waxed lyrical in these pages before about current Italian music, and this only adds to that. An album that is oozing with atmosphere and ideas. It is dark and sinister and yet with an assured lightness of touch, experimental enough to be challenging, but not so far as to be up itself.”
dayzofpurpleandorange.blogspot.it

“It’s not every day you encounter a band like Menimals, either in terms of visual or cerebral stimulus. Menimals is an eruption of fractal fracturing, a rebirthing of the seed of life, this latter-day Pythagorean Brotherhood, sacred geomancers, conducting aeonic, ascendant affirmations…”
chromaticismrevolutions.com

“Menimals are certainly pushing hard (the genre) at its edges with their unique style of mystic multi-media at a time where psychedelic music is in danger of becoming very conservative, taking any preconceived notion of what modern psychedelia has evolved into and tipping it on its head. If there is such a thing as a psychedelic rule book, Menimals have torn it to shreds after scribbling all over the pages. It takes a few listens for the majesty of this record to really hit home but for the more inquisitive Psychonaut spending time in Menimals world of magic and mystery is a must.”

Track Name: In this unforgiving heat
where is safe?
how tight is taut?
enemies lying in wait
there are things I crave
strange fantasies permeate
you can never know what works below
hot / cold - compensate
I sweat for no reasons but my own

struggling
reckless
chaos

the common suffer while others carry on
Track Name: Dodecahedron, the window sphere
5 4 3 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
dodecahedron
above as below
first of awareness
master of all
master...
harness the planet
create the mold
supreme awareness
master of all
master. . .
precious melodies, when they came, they came divine
god-head turtles-out for a peak, retreats inside
thunder overhead and underneath, a lightning strike
the space in between takes a charge and comes alive
pick one of twelve sides
ruminate
pick one of twelve tones
masticate idly
twelve plane faces seeing twelve tones (the window sphere,)
we strive for closeness but live alone (the window sphere, close)
closer
we strive for closeness
eternal embrace
a twelve plane face
twelve tones are sonic
dodecaphonic
a symphony of solids in five movements
Platonic
5 4 3 2 1
Track Name: Tetrahedron
experiments continue
devotion
endurance unvaried
hook to the lungs a sharp wind endeavors
fights hard, cold machines
compulsively rechecking instruments
calibrate as routine
data it gave, confusing alliance
flesh versus machine
think what could be gained in a short time
pleasure and pain in the long run
vacillate between the poles: fire to cold
knowing well enough in a short time
the two extremes in the long run
vacillate between the types: hot to ice
I gave it the heart
a soul like a flower
wet, rise, work, and be
drying occurs
lunar landscape arises
wind hot like machine
fueling replace
a hum of an engine
wet, rise, work, and be
dialing it down
pistons slow
an idle
poised for flight, hot machine
Track Name: Transition from a Cube to the Octahedron
don't get lost in the cliffs
save it
don't get lost in the cliffs lost

confession time
fess up
got the goods on you
eviscerates shadows
now is the new never
then was the old herald (stand and pose, bravo!)
welcoming you always
ciao to the new herald
eviscerate fear
hold back
keep up
informant in the loop informant in here

don't get lost in the cliffs
save it
don't get lost in the cliffs
marble and granite
metallic
organic

find a better way to Rome
find a better path to roam
find a better way
find it
search (vesica piscis)
find a better way to Rome

the devil knows
the devil known
the devil knows to provide illusions of grand illusions
the devil is known to do right
the devil is known ...do about it...
try to seem like there's no care
it's easy, laissez faire
stone cold in a stone chair
ambiance stabilizes
white passion dark fashion
(vesica piscis)

find a better way to Rome
on this rock, a home
soft hand hard bone
a cube under octahedron
find a better way to Rome
better path to roam
from the doorstep to the pillow
backstage at the show
the devil is known
don't get lost in the cliffs
save it
don't get lost in the cliffs
marble and granite
metallic
organic

dense as the earth itself dense as
dirt
Track Name: Bird on the wing as a hinge
nematode hides in holes
no daylight
forcing sight
(temper day trepidation)
beauty goes in a stove
forcing nines
forsake kind
(where you go? you go away go)
spinning slow, atoms go speed of light
elopement time
(what to know? everything!)
bridges go over
show gorge of mind
valley pines
(too wet for fire, young and full of pitch)

through the phase and shift metamorphosis
a grower a shower
(there you are)
through the phase and the shift metamorphosis
revealing a chosen
(there you are)
through the phase and the shift metamorphosis
thinning the heard
(there you are)
through the phase and the shift metamorphosis... a mind of its own...
ahh... innocence... unhinge
a bird on the wing as a hinge
pivots
becomes anew
arrives anew
and here we are
a hot welcome over a cold goodbye

unhinges
a bird like a hinge lifting
unhinges
a bird like a hinge turning
unhinges
a bird like a hinge receding
unhinges
a bird like a hinge
pinpoint
is that the temperature?
(the fire's cold)

close the valves
it's cooling
take action

beauty goes in a stove
forcing nines
forsake kind
(where you go? you go away go)

the experiment is over...
