"Another smoker from Acid Mothers Temple and The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., in typically fine form. Benzaiten is an In C style homage to the classic Osamu Kitajima record Benzaiten (1974). Acid Mothers Temple covers the title-track and reprise using Kitajima's original composition as a departure point to explore the outer realms of AMT territory. Further instrumental explorations reveal textures of the original composition while launching out further into the cosmic domain. Numerous Acid Mothers originals are scattered in between. Benzaiten!"-Important
