3 stars Though this album follows the style of the first recording of the gonzo jamming of this musical collective, I found this as a more interesting and pleasant release than the trashy "Psychedelic Underground". Here the sound quality is a bit more better, and the atavistic session excerpts have been molded as collages with editing and enriching them with sound effects. I guess this album would appeal to fans of tribal music, as there is a strong presence of ethnic collective drumming in the music, accompanied by intoxicated wailings and chaotic fuzzed electric guitars. There are also some very quiet parts there, though in some cases the building up of hypnotic trance is disturbed with sudden cuts or sounds, making this record a more chaotic listening experience than the following more mellow "Paradieswärts Düül" album, which I see as their most prolific release, and this one being a good second in their discography from the quality point of view.
