4 stars German band Wallenstein's debut had been a perfect hybrid between dynamic, energetic space rock and classically inspired Prog and most probably the best album they did ever. This band revealed a very nice self-contained style never sounding like a rip-off of the big seminal bands, at least on their first three releases which are the only ones I listened to so far. Though being mostly on the hard edge the four compositions presented here are highly melodic with delicate piano play contrasted nicely by heavy guitar played by US-American Bill Barone in a kind of "Krautrock"-fashion. If there are any weak points to be mentioned at all then it might be the lacklustre vocal presentation but the instrumental sections are prevailing here anyway. Finally I just can say that this record has passed the test of time well with me and I can highly recommend it to anyone looking for some Prog between bombastic Symphonic and raw Krautrock.
