From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Ihre Kinder's third record "Leere Hände" from 1970 was a pleasant experience. Like my father I like very much German stuff and these songs is beautifully sung in German by the singer Sonny Hennig. What is presented here is two language version of the record but I only review the German songs. Ihre Kinder (Your children) is called Krautrock but it's progressive in a more political way than musical, almost like the Swedish Progg. Anyway this is very nice music and I am happy to write the first review of it and hope many will follow.

Done in the early seventies the music is full of the clear sound of rock, mixed with emotion and som progressive touches. Those toaches is for example the flute and the keyboards which are palpable over the full album. Ihre Kinder made up by Olders Frenzel(drummer), Sonny Hennig (vocalist, keyboard player), Muck Groh(guitarist), Georgie Meyer(flutist, bells, vocals), Walti Schneider(bassist, vocals) and Ernst Schultz(guitarist, bassist, percussionist, vocals).

The best song is the title track "Leere Hände" which is a little proggy but very nice pop song with clever keys and great singing. That is a track you want to play again and again. The second best track is "Strasse ohne Ziel" which perhaps has a deeper and more proggy feeling, also a beautiful song. "Ich kann dir nichts geben", "Hilf mir" and "Nimm deine liebe" would I also consider very good tracks. The others are also worth listening.

This is a quite easy achieved record from the Germans "Ihre Kinder". I love the sweet voice and the great compositions. It's music with skillful song writing, not especially progressive but attractive. To me it works very well and they're getting my four stars. 3,77 becomes 4 when I round it up. You can also listen to the songs in English, "Empty hands" for example is very good.
