One vocal and many instrumentals on here will lift you
Review written by John Fitzgerald, June 2nd, 2005

"The art of levitation" sounds similar to Bardens' "Big sky" album but this is an improvement. This album seems, though it may not be really, more instrumental than "Big sky" was probably due to it having less songs (and they are longer in duration as well) which helps this keyboard dominated affair though there are some wonderful vocal moments on this album, particularly on the album's best track, "Spirit of the water" (a remake of Bardens' Camel song) sung beautifully by Tallulah (Bardens) accompanied by pretty acoustic guitar at the beginning and it has a haunting theme throughout. The opener "The zone" is in boogie/shuffle mode which is mostly instrumental, a good one. Then comes "She takes me there" which is one to clap to with light rhythm guitar at the beginning but it doesn't hang around for as long as it should. "Making waves" starts with what sounds like either a strange edit or an odd rhythm but then goes in to a lightweight detective show theme feel, good keyboard led instrumental, works because of the refraining of vocals. "Hopi prayer" is another galloper that perhaps should have been left as an instrumental. "No jazz" is a good driving instrumental track with effective electric guitar leads. "Take back your power" is a pulsating number with rhythm guitar throughout but the chanting should've been scrapped. The closer "High" is a fair vocal tune which is nice to listen to, mid tempo, doesn't really go anywhere but does grow on you. Unlike other artists, Bardens' originality sets him far and above his contemporaries and even when his vocal workouts fail, he is more successful at them than others have been as his instrumental passages pull him through such performances regardless. This is worth it mainly for "Spirit of the water" but "No jazz", "Making waves" & "The zone" will add to it's best point and good (most likely) Mick rhythms throughout. A good swan song for a sorely missed artist who passed on way too early.
