5 stars Straight out of the commune and into the studios. AMON DUUL II's first offering is a very creative heavy-psych of the late 60s. I definitely hear PINK FLOYD influences from the Syd Barrett years as well as some JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. But this is a highly original melding of their psychedelia with many different ethnic sounds as well as a creepy slightly out of tune violin and some highly freaky and unconventional vocals as well!

I have to say that this caught my off guard since my only reference to this band upon hearing this was their second album YETI. I actually like this one a lot better and this has to go down in my book as one of the wackiest and most fun albums of the whole 60s psychedelic scene. Unlike many, I actually really like the spooky ghost haunting sounds of the title track. Once again it reminds me of the title track on SAUCER FULL OF SECRETS. Really cool avant-garde psych freakout complete with that signature bass sound. 4.5 rounded up
