4 stars Very great psychedelic folk delight, Witthuser And Westrupp used to play some excellent acoustic melodic tunes in their german mother tongue language, while Witthuser concentrated on his acoustic guitar, his very creative friend westrupp is a terrific multi-instrumentist playing banjo, flute, xylophon, and sometimes bonga..

This album is a great improvement following their previous work, (the " Lieder von Vampiren, Nonnen & Toten" album) wich altought containing nice melodic moments (Liebeslied, Dracula, Hinüber walln ich), is very restrained and repetitive in comparison to this masterpiece, the whole atmosphere is quite floating and peacefull in here, in almost all track there is a back organ wich add a real nice dimension to their folky sympatic tunes..

The album starts with "lasst uns auf die reise gehen", very nice folk music with some xylophone and a hint of the traditional "merry night" melody. The second track "Tripo nova" is one of my favourite of this band, a kind of small acoustic jam from Withuser and great singing from Westrupp in an overall trippy atmosphere. The five following tracks contain some nice instrumental moments ("englisher" walzer, "Illusion") and a conceptual song "Karlchen" featuring some speeches that unfortunately can't understand but appreciate.

Recommended album, give it a few listen it will grow in you, still an underrated gem!
