2 stars A tough case to analyze in detail.

This album might be compiled with some loose jam sessions done here, there and overthere ... and as you feel, their recording condition and playing itself are not really good. Cloudy experimental fuzzes are heard from the beginning until the third one. Voices sound like cheesy ones flooded with mind altering agents ... however, kinda Kraut-ish dry-fruity flavour and eccentrically bitter taste can be felt all through. Basically serious, sane condition cannot launch such a crazy sound hotchpotch.

The fourth track "Process, Upload, Consciousness Serial Experiment" is a fantastic jack-in-the-box like Semool. Crazy percussive kicks, funky flute violence, horn prickles, and absurd voices ... all are in another space. Suitable to call Krauty indeed. The last "The Secret Things In Rosetjau" is the only rock-ish one in this compilation ... guess they played this song on stage anywhere, where the audience might be immersed in their real Krautrock experiments, based upon desert drumming and cool guitar sounds, tinged with dim voices structure. This stuff can be called as one of Krautrock gems, let me say.

Although we can get little from this compilation but on the other hand enjoy such an problematic creation upon another side, can't we? Not recommended actually. :P

— First review of this album —
3 stars What a horribly discordant / mixed temperature they've shot, just like a religious ritual with offering their inner minds in sacrifice.

Impressive indeed. Their guitar sounds are not melodious at all but floating like ghostly fireballs. Voices / shouts can be heard as an infernal physical / psychological breakdown launched in front of us in an emergent manner. There's no rhythm arrangement nor melodic treatment, but simply tribal percussive kicks and purple poisonous smoke veiling them all around ... meaningless voices and crazy breath might accelerate their improvised mind transplantation aggressively, especially in the first longest track "Sirius Transmission: A".

Guess the spiritual flavour and mind-altering atmosphere could make them fall into trance as if they'd have aspired something like psychic agents. However believe me, they cannot be scattered nor dissected in pieces, but they play refined frozen air under estranged inspiration I imagine.

Actually no uncomfortable stone but mysterious spiritual uplift has been left deeply into our brain. Cannot recommend for every Krautrock freak but consider you can understand how they play their illusive / delusive inner space world. Fine for you to gain mystical experience really, let me say.

2 stars This spell casting session is evoked from both primitive and uneducated tryouts, finding its dominant form from both tribal beats and monotonic aggressiveness. The gonzo-activity is accompanied with chanting vocals, and the sound has clear has similarities to those krautrock passages, which I have originally heard from the Amon Düül collectives. Acoustic minimalism and raw analogue tones are certainly aesthetically quite pleasant to my ears. The lunatic emptiness delivered by these sounds have also a place in my psyche, so these hollow tales brought some honest listening satisfaction. However I admit some drunken wailing sequences wander to territories where I can only barely follow, and which I do not detect as most comfortable planes to linger. There are some nice contrasts brought to the sounds, like the magickal voices ending the song "Genetic Dispute Solved By Grammatological Nantooth". Following "Cur From Busiris" is a purely dazed sailor song for (cocktail?)shakers and totally nocturnal pilgrims. Non-tuned guitars introduce the following mindless song, which is colored also with a pipe and horns, later morphing as lo-fi synthesizer-beat freak out studies, ending to trumpet melodies among beat box activities. Longer pause reveals presence of amplified band on stage, some uncertain testis leading to decent but amateurish open psychedelia titled as "The Secret Things In Rosetjau".

This kind of music is interesting to confront and study, but I have not yet found levels where my listening hobbies would be most constantly devoted towards material presented on this album. I think this record also contained some humor sequences, maybe lowering my interest slightly.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
