2 stars A tough case to analyze in detail.

This album might be compiled with some loose jam sessions done here, there and overthere ... and as you feel, their recording condition and playing itself are not really good. Cloudy experimental fuzzes are heard from the beginning until the third one. Voices sound like cheesy ones flooded with mind altering agents ... however, kinda Kraut-ish dry-fruity flavour and eccentrically bitter taste can be felt all through. Basically serious, sane condition cannot launch such a crazy sound hotchpotch.

The fourth track "Process, Upload, Consciousness Serial Experiment" is a fantastic jack-in-the-box like Semool. Crazy percussive kicks, funky flute violence, horn prickles, and absurd voices ... all are in another space. Suitable to call Krauty indeed. The last "The Secret Things In Rosetjau" is the only rock-ish one in this compilation ... guess they played this song on stage anywhere, where the audience might be immersed in their real Krautrock experiments, based upon desert drumming and cool guitar sounds, tinged with dim voices structure. This stuff can be called as one of Krautrock gems, let me say.

Although we can get little from this compilation but on the other hand enjoy such an problematic creation upon another side, can't we? Not recommended actually. :P
