4 stars Often regarded as the less representative of the classic records of Amon Duul II, Wolf City is builded up in song-format and is certainly more accessible for those who begin to explore the vast german scene. This not mean the music is less inovative and involving.

From the strong opener "Surrounded by the Stars" (the longest track here, over 7 mns) to the impressive closer (the most favourite of mine) "Sleepwalker's Timeless Bridge", passing through other classic such as the adventurous "Wie Der Wind Am Ende Einer Strasse" and "Deutsche Nepal" there's a teutonic festival approaching sometimes eastern culture through a convincing playing of acoustic instruments (guitar, sitar and violin, above all). The last two songs of the abovementioned ones, can really open a new door toward a different musical taste!

A symphonic wave passes all through the typical german sound and the result is a krautrock's manifesto, certainly deserving more wide recognition. Highly recommended.

Andrea Cortese | 4/5 |
