1 stars This is one of those records that do not have the merit in the music itself but in the role it played those days and in future developements of the band and he genre. As some people say, this album is the start point of the so called krautrock movement, and this record captures, in a very primitive and innocent way, those elements: long jams, imporvisations, mysticism, spacey vocals, weirdness (despite lack of electronics) and, above all thiese things, the awareness of being part of the pioneers of the time. Is it a good record? Well, for me, it is not. You only have to imagine all the band living together and full of LSD. In fact, IMHO, what appears on the record is of very poor quality, everyone palying for himself and never creating anything slightly cohessive and coherent. So then, I can only reccommend this record for musical anthropologists and for kraut-core fans (as I am) who want to discover how krautrock began.
