4 stars Second studio album by this experimental fusion band of the early 70's. This one is quite different from their debut Smile a While. It is more personal; deviates somewhat from the canterburian jazz rock fusion and creates own space. Probably because of this, it is a more difficult album, the melodies and sounds are less familiar. The organ passages are however very much in the late sixties underground music, great, The first two themes, Hirnwind and Herbst are fantastic, you soon realize this is new stuff, something that will probably not make a huge following, but it is unique. Except for the sung passages in a very tasteless voice (not many), all instrumental parts are great. The recording is much improved; there were a lot of deficiencies in the former.
poito | 4/5 |
