Analog (2011)

"Analog is the second installment from the great instrumental psychedelic jam machine known as The Re-Stoned. Rather than simply copy the formula established from their first album, they have produced something with a different vibe completely... Less metallic than 'Revealed Gravitation', this album is heavily rooted in psychedelic, sprawling jams that are breath-taking, free-flowing improvisations... The relaxed, acid-drenched atmosphere in combination with the warm production makes this album kind of sensual, strange to say that in relation with a psychedelic, stoner jam band but these tunes sound sexy (perfect f**king music) that still rocks at the same time. Songs are beautifully arranged even with the improvisatory attitude. They can go from slow, bluesy passages to stoner-metal riff rock to moments of spacey psychedelic acid rock and it is all done seamlessly... It is one of the 'must-haves' of 2011. (Score: 9/10)" by Ed Barnard of Doommantia (USA) (May 2011).

"Re-Stoned is usually described as 70's-like psychedelia. The band generally focuses on free-flowing improvisations that much of the time include some much-welcomed lengthy jams... Recommended for fans of Fu Manchu, Nebula, Mastodon, Kyuss, Colour Haze and possibly The Sword or Valient Thorr." - by Mike Reed @ Aural Innovations (USA)
