3 stars Werwolf is an obscure progressive rock band formed in early '70's in Germany. AS previous reviewers said befor me, this is a pretty good album, with lots of instrumental passages, good arrangements and pleasent voice of Gitta Loewenstein. The only not good thing, probably IMO is the year of release, 1982, a year when prog was in underground and no one listening to this genre, with some exceptions of course, so this album was unnoticed back then and now awell. So what we have in 1982, musicaly speaking , progressive giants were in shadow, the new ones just take their had out of sand like Marillion, Iq or others, what about german scene, the new bands , who takes their influences from their own musical kings like Eloy, Grobschnitt or Novalis, this is the case here, influnces from this bands with some passages from Genesis or even in places some Pink Flkoys, but sporadic. overall is an ok album, my version has three bonus tracks recorded already by the band in 1979. So as I said an fairly good album, with some strong pieces and with some mediocre ones aswell. The musicianship is ok, the voice of female singer is good, what else then catalogued this release with 3 stars. Some complains, are the poor quality sound on some tracks, and sometimes the pieces are too long, and aswell the album together with those 3 bonuses is a little too long, and sometimes a little boring, but doesn't mean is uninstristing. The most solid tunes are to me Flying high, the instrumental Daydream , The dreamer from the bonus and The journey to the land of flying pigs is another winner. Also in some parts the band is toying with some folk arrangements that gives to the album a good atmosphere, more on mellow side but ok from musical side. 3 stars for this obscure album and band, they never made it prog circles, but maybe with the re issues on CD on couple of labels they will be more exposed to the prog listners.
