4 stars While mythos first record featured some short songs with some very nice flute added to two long epics called "Encyclopedia Terra", this album expand their music to a more cosmic dimension, and since this album has originally released by the Rolf Ulrich Kaiser "Kosmische Music" label, it is not surprising that their sound has been heavily influenced by the Cosmic Jokers / Ash Ra Tempel music...

I really like this album and I use to listen it more often than their first work.. Very atmopheric, we have here an very quite soft sound with an reverbered atmosphere and compositions that are very catchy, it attracts the listener's ear and the dreamy sound and emotion here is quite unique.

The first track "Dedicated to Werhner Von Braun" is a short track with echo guitar that clearly reminds us Manuel Gottsching works on the "Join Inn" album and is very reminiscient to Gunter Schickert echo guitar sound, I really like this experimental guitar piece.

"Message" covers every facets of this album, psychedelic experimentations, wahwah distorted guitar solo, strange vocals that can be harsh at first listen but in fact it doesn't bother since it really flows in with the music. "Mythalagia" and "Dreamlab" are my favourite tracks in here, very beautiful psychedelic sound evolving into a great flute dominated rocking instrumental..

This is a highly recommended classic and a typical record of what the krautrock scene gave us.
