3 stars 3,5 stars, actually...

W&W, even though a German folk band, can take pride that they mix psychedelic and kraut along with their apparent folkish style. The result is really good. Due to the fact that they took their first steps in the 60's, all three of their albums were more or less influenced by the psychedelic scene of the decade and like all German bands at that time kraut elements are more than obvious... Der Jesuspilz - Musik Vom Evangelium is a blasphemous in an ironic way concept that associates the bible to drugs!!! an odd conception but rather opportune one for the band to develop their acoustical songs to long rhapsodies with either "arcane" vocals or declamations of poetry in German which makes the mood even more mystic in a way that serves the concept... But the real beauty of this effort are the traditional instruments in use like banjo and ukelele stating that no matter what W&W is a folk band... Overall, a very good and special album but not a top one, somehow a difficult album to introduce someone to the genre but an excellent addition for the folk fans...
