4 stars "A Meditation Mass" is really a 40 minute song that is divided into four parts that blend together. Flute is the dominating instrument in this mellow, meditative recording from 1972. This is very trippy with percussion.

"Part 1" is the only part with vocals or vocal melodies. You can hear the wind blowing as slowly played guitar comes in followed by percussion and flute. Flute gets a little crazy 11 1/2 minutes in then we hear the soft vocals. Vibraphone is played late in this part followed by piano. "Part 2" is the shortest part with flute,piano and drums leading the way. This part picks up in tempo as the bass arrives after 1 1/2 minutes to a Jazzy soundscape.

"Part 3" is more aggressive after 3 minutes as the guitar and drums add some excitement to this section. This is Jazzy as well and for many it's the best part of the album. Then this melody stops as drums and flute take turns before we get a melody before 9 minutes. "Part 4" opens with pecussion then gentle guitar before the flute comes in.

This is laid back and relaxing music that is very well done. It's trippin' Krautrock at it's best.
