"Talismandala" is Shrine's third release, featuring five tracks. While they're mainly focused on psychedelia, each track's style is quite different creating a wonderful blend. The first song is a great sample of straight-forward heavy psych with some beautiful key parts while in "High Five" they're stepping into jazz rock territory covering the jazz-classic "Take Five" (composed by Paul Desmond and originally recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet for its 1959) . "Archaic Calls To The Gods Of The Sun And Guardians Of The Sky" is a kind of weird noise rock jam which works relatively good. "My Mother's A Terrible Lover" is a more laid-back one where the use of yodel-styled vocals put an extra touch of craziness. The 15min "Temple" reminds me of Mugstar so it's very hard not to like it.
