From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Ihre Kinder is a German rock band which made five studio albums during the period 1969- 1972, and then some years later they recorded a live record 1982. Ihre Kinder means "Their Children" and I have earlier reviewed their second album "Leere Hände" which was a very pleasant and poetic rock album. "Werdohl" from 1971 is their fourth. Between those they made another record which I will listen to later.

Werdohl's cover is a red knobbly one with an unsharp photography of the band and its sign is written in old germanic style. The musicians on the record are Sonny Hennig(vocals and keyboards), Muck Groh(guitar, trombone), Tommi Röder (bass, saxophone, guitar, vocals), Georgie Meyer(flute, bells, vocals), Olders Frenzel(drums, guitar) and Ernst Schultz(guitars, bass and vocals). It was released fourty-three years ago and now to the music.

I enjoyed this listening very much. I love music in German over all, it's a poetic language and Sonny Hennig's voice is smooth and nice to listen to. I would recommend some of these songs particularly such as "Schlaf-Lied", amongst the best, with a clanging sweet melody(8/10) and the starter "Babylon" which is both catchy and has its own feeling(7/10). "Worte" was darker also I think one of the best(8/10) such as the longest "Werdohl" where the different instruments do their job often lonely. The track is partially very dramatic and poetic(7/10).

Even if I enjoyed my two listenings very much I find this music a little bit too much unchallenging. Almost every song gave me the same feeling and I would have wanted something more fanatic or experimental. The record also lacks favourite tracks which I want to hear again and again. Therefore a rating of three stars would be enough.
