3 stars A very sensual, charming, percussive kraut-jazzy trip . Each composition reveals luminous pages, structured on drum sections, also including a surprising amount of psychedelic free brass elements and melodic, acoustic arrangements (notably obtained by the majestic grand piano in the almost romantic & jazzy "Papera"). The title track starts into an epically dynamic session for enchanting flutes then rapidly let the place to pseudo, sacred Indian sitar motifs. It pursues in an unpredictable heavy psychedelic, furious set. "Now it hurts you" is a floating percussive song, including hypno like string effects, weird voices and a puerile hippy atmosphere. "Groove Rock" is certainly the highest musical part of the album, a soulful, intensive and technical jazzy rock jam, featuring endlessly tripped out effects. Not a lot of surprises but a real consistent, intuitive album.
