From Aural Innovations #16 (June 2001)

Lamp Of The Universe is a solo project from Datura bassist and vocalist Craig Williamson. What a surprise! For those of you who don't know them, Datura are a heavy Stoner rock band, while Lamp Of The Universe is a gorgeously lulling cosmic trip into a paisley colored psychedelic land of celestial ragas from Williamson's guitars, sitar, synths, and tablas. We're talking track titles like "Lotus Of A Thousand Petals" and "Tantra Asana". Believe me, these describe the music on The Cosmic Union perfectly. Lightly strumming acoustic guitars and sitars drift throughout as the tablas and other percussion keep a simple but effective psychedelic pace. Williamson's vocals are equally light and drifting making for the perfect marriage with his music. Lots of beautifully meandering jams that will open your mind for exploring the alternate realms that you travel with Williamson to. There are aggressive moments too, particularly on "In The Mystic Light" which sounds like a jam off Amon Düül's Yeti album. And love that organ and shimmering guitar on "Freedom In Your Mind". HIGHLY recommended to fans of deep space flower power psychedelia.

Probably *the* best album I've heard in recent times is Lamp Of The Universe's "The Cosmic Union". Unlike many others who go for heavy one chord jamming, Craig Williamson has chosen a different path. The music is lush and light, with sitars, occasional fuzz, tablas and organ, but the music has an amotional weight which makes it rich and textured. There's always something more to "The Cosmic Union", always another door to open. The music is free, not unlike S.T. Mikael's best moments. It's loving and simply brilliant music!
