3 stars Now it is time for me to write a little about the German group Ihre Kinder's third studio album which is usually known as "2375 004(Jeans-Cover)" but actually lacks a title on the cover box. The album was released in 1970 and the participating musicians are Sonny Hennig(vocals, keyboards), Muck Groh(guitar), Tommi Roeder(bass, saxophone), Georgie Meyer(flute, bells and vocals), Olders Frenzel(drums, guitar) and Ernst Schultz(guitar, bass, percussion, vocals). The cover shows the texture of a jeans cloth and a marking with washing instructions.

This album contains music from a well playing quite dark and groovy band which aren't progressive in matter of creativity or strange melodies, they are sprung from another tradition. Some tracks are light but the majority are quite dark. "Toter soldat" is one of the best tracks on the album and it is also the most experimental(7/10). The best track though is "Mutter bekommt ein Kind"(8/10) which is very embracing and I love the saxes here played, a little bit like those in Van der Graaf Generator's music(8/10). "Strassenkind" is also worth naming as a wonderful and interesting prog ballad(8/10). I would also recommend you to hear "Mantel im wind"(7/10). Otherwise the songs are rather ordinar and I guess you need to know German to perfect get the music, when a lot of its interest lies in the lyrics.

This band know how to play rock music and you'd hear some of the songs with satisfiction. But when you hear much, the variation would be too small. It's not a challenging type of music really. Three stars!
