4 stars Wallenstein from Viersen and Mönschengladbach in Nordrhein-Westphalen, Germany made nine studio albums between 1971 and 1981 and the kept up a high tempo of producing music. "No More Love" from 1977 is the band's fifth album, made two years after their last record "Stories, songs & symphonies" in 1975. The cover picture of "No more love" doesn't look like ordinary prog albums and some of you would probably fear the music would take an inappropriate step towards pop music. I can gladly say that is not what happens here! The cover picture has two figures, a man and a woman without sexes and looking like barbie dolls. Otherwise the cover is very white.

Jurgen Dollase plays keyboards and sings, Nicky Gebhard drums, plays percussion and sings, Gerb Klocker plays guitar and sings and Jurgen Pluta plays bass and sings. This is obviously a four man gruop where everybody sing, that is amazing of course. What's so fantastic here is that Wallenstein's music continues to sound amazing in my ears; they play perfect symphonic rock with great typical seventies sounds.

"Seventy-seven" is a great starter where a powerful symphonic melody plasy with the different vocals in the band(8/10) and the longer "Backstreet Dreamer" is a longer wonderful track(7/10). "I can't loose" is an honest track with a lot of love(8/10) and the title track "No more love" is very emotional with a great intro and a song that will grow until the end. A fine example of awesome seventies symphonic rock(9/10). The two ending songs follows in the same way and both "Jo Jo" and "On a Eagles Wings" are worth their (7/10) listenings.

This music is very pleasant to my ears. Well, it's not very new thinking and experimental, but its continues the sweat obvious symphonic rock it had started with six years earlier. I would recommend this record warmly, beacuse it's a great prog record! Four stars!
