E lungo itinerari convergenti (anche) a quelli indicati dal compianto Daevid Allen si muove il caleidoscopico Bottled Out of Eden, terzo capitolo Knifeworld: Kavus Torabi con Melanie Woods, Emmett Elvin, Chloe Herington, Charlie Cawood, Oliver Sellwood, Ben Woollacott e Josh Perl. Con lo zampino di Bob Drake.

Scrive Dom Lawson sul Guardian: "Knifeworld’s third album takes in blissful krautrock sermonising (High/Aflame), snappy art rock (The Germ Inside) and mutant jazz-rock grooves (I Am Lost) – and that’s just the first three songs. Students of this stuff will spot shades of Gong, Henry Cow, XTC and Shudder to Think lurking amid the angular rhythmic twists and elegantly perverse arrangements, but frontman and ex-Cardiac Kavus Torabi’s greatest skill is his ability to cram incisive but wonderfully alien melodies into every misshapen sonic nook. This is a big, vivid, lysergic joy."
