5 stars Altona is almost forgotten German kraut-rock band, in fact - reincarnation of early krautrock band Thrice Mice. Their debut is excellent example of slightly psychedelic heavy jazz-rock, in moments similar to Colosseum music.

Sound is very dynamic, full of heavy rhythms, sax soloing and some vocals ( Karl-Heinz Blumenberg is ex-Thrice Mice vocalist). It's a bit pity, that this album is rarity, because it represents krautrock at its best.

All compositions are different, has own melodies and complex and very competent musicianship. Happily, this album was re-released on CD in 2000 ( by Disconforme), so it is possible to find it for listening.

If you like jazz-rock ( in best Colosseum style) and heavy energetic krautrock, this album is excellent addition to your collection.

Really 4,5!
