3 stars Baumstam is a 70's obscure fuzzed out and spacey rock 'n roll band with heavy guitars and nervous (sometimes melodic) vocals. "On tour" is the unique testimony of a band which totally disappeared. The album oscillates between conventional garage, power rocking chords and warmer, floating spacey rock tunes. The dominant are the fuzzy guitars, constantly built around rockin riffs and buzzing solos. Their musical approach can be compared with stoner rock classics, German Oak (without the lugubrious acid vein), British heavy rock standards (thinking about the very first Deep Purple) and the bluesy rock of Rory Gallagher. The opening track is a fuzzed riffed heavy "trip" with vocals. Lucky strike is in the same mood. "Hold me" is a more melodic, refined song, including emotional fuzzing solos parts and shining vocals. "Jazz Break" is an urgent, wild freak'n roll excursion.The band doesn't sound amateurish at all and their songs could written by the most notorious bands of the genre. A decent addition for fans of progressive heavy rock bands.
