4 stars What a darkness for being a US project.

Mysterious, creepy and cranky atmosphere around them indeed. Guess they could not have been appreciated so easily by rock freaks in those days. Perverse, sticky drumming like "Wall Of Sounds" with cheap electronic earache from the beginning of "Crystal Waters" reminds me another dimensional nausea. Such an infernal human shouts, inner psychedelic sound space, and some tribal percussive kicks upon a rough animal planet in the following "Terror Is Real" (that is really a terror-vision!) can let a sorrowful piano solo "Courage" quite peaceful one, which can encourage us in such a tough real world.

Another strategy of fantastic Krautrock representation should be "The Hard Hit" we may say uh? We can hear just pretty simple riff depths filled with hard drumming, inorganic piano punches, and unstable rhythm snakes all around, and feel glad to touch the hard hits, very tough to follow though. Can we say it be their masterpiece? This hardness may let us forget remarkable experiments (really Kraut-ish!) in "Mirror's", built with quirky electronic and dark voice / tape effects simply. Oh the pioneer of Acid Mothers Temple? Neat one. Their final product is the last unrefined mixture "Redemption". This final answer veiled with eccentricity squeezed here and there around itself cannot relieve nor relax your neck stiffness, let me say.

At any rate, this obscure creation can be considered as one of transcendental meditative Krautrock gems in mid 1970s, we Krautrock mania can say really.

P. S.: This project have been recommended by a Krautrock researcher Pierre (hellogoodbye) a while before ... thanks Pierre for your brilliant recommendation!
