Essential Mayan Ruins
I love Mayan Ruins' first album and this second release shows them even more intense. There's a strong sense of cohesion and commitment to the mystical, trance/like style they've developed. It's incredible to find so many extended jams in one place. In the late 60's when psychedelic band experimented with Eastern directions you might find one extended stand-out track on each album. On Sacred and Profane 7 of the 11 tracks are over 7 minutes long, and use the time well to create an inescapable mood. Cosmic!
