2 stars Wallenstein's debut "Britzkrieg" is a frenetically paced affair, replete with Kraut rock styled organ, guitar, and frenzied drumming workouts. Mellow passages are strewn throughout, with "The Theme" resting in that realm the longest, featuring some sumptuous piano in the mix, but this is a high energy, mostly instrumental album for those who like their prog served with extended jams. The opening cut pretty much demonstrates it all. Ultimately, it's really only for fans of this style, for whom more is more. I really cannot enter its molten core the way I can with, say, Grobschnitt's "Solar Music Live" which appeared later in the decade, or Eloy's "Inside" that came out a couple of years after. It nonetheless delivers on the promise of its title.
