4 stars Garden of Delights must be commended for unearthing this gem from the mid 70s. Amateurly produced, down to the barebones cover, but very professionally played, "Point of Eruption" is not quite a typical German symphonic release from the 70s, as a discernible celtic sensibility is grafted on to the classic Krautrock spaciness, particularly in the vocals, lyrics and melodies of "She", "Battle Rock" and "Festival".

Organ and mellotron dominate the proceedings but Elmar Wegmann's guitars provide balance not to mention some good raw solos. Passages alternate agreeably between the atmospheric and the bombastic, sometimes bringing to mind Novalis' "Banished Bridge".

All the tracks not specifically named are instrumental and of high quality, but I feel the vocal tracks, warts and all, really give this band a distinctive quality and warrant a higher rating for the disk than the recording alone could justify. Recommended to lovers of refined melodic keyboard oriented prog, who don't have hangups about production!
