4 stars This second single track album was expected to be a follow-up to the first. Well, it's still made of a single track, even if shorter, with totally different sections jointed by very well thought and performed transitions, but it's not exactly the same kind of things of the first.

The first 6 minutes lay between the studio side of Ummagumma and electronic drones in Kraut style. The various sections are less easy than on Volume One, with noisy elements and sometimes dissonances, with an exciting rhythmic part just in the middle of the track containing also a very good guitar solo, containing a bit of standard rock-blues very well driven by bass and drums.

More than a follow-up to volume one it appears to be more a complement to it, even in that sort of noisy psych rock between minutes 13 and 19 on which the guitar sounds like Jimmy Page or Hendrix at Woodstock. The bass is clean and high-volumed. It sometimes reminds to the System of a Down, but it's just for a bit, as a sort of waltz arrives quite suddenly to bring the guitar out of hell. Bass and drums work intensively throughout the track until a Floydian segment arrives at minute 23, then some tapes and electronic beeps close it.

A rating? I have given 4 stars to the about 40 minutes of Volume one, so I could give 3 stars to the less than 30 minutes of volume two, but I have really enjoyed it. Volume One was a surprise and this has contributed to its high rating, anyway Volume Two is as good and I imagine a CD reissued with both the tracks. Would it be a 5-stars release?
