4 stars Propulsive heavy rock jams including positive groovy arrangements and pastoral chanting flutes. This is an obvious obscurity from German underground and a major contribution in the 70's progressive rock scene. It's not clearly a krautrock experience but an amazing, damaged progressive fusion voyage which can be considered as a cross between Jethro Tull's first bluesy folk efforts, Black Sabbath ("Paranoid" era) The Incredible String Band, Gomorrah and Nosferatu (For the German side). "Delusion" starts as a pastoral introspective voyage with acoustic guitars and flutes, carries on a heavy rock'n roll trip with solid guitar riffs and 70's hard rocking vocals. "Dream of drummer" is an ultra rhythmical, dynamic, frantic drum set with guitar grooves and a fascinating echoing bluesy rock solo at the end of the improvisation. "Time is flying" is an evident hybrid between Black Sabbath heavy rock arguments and Jethro Tull's original sound (rustic bluesy folk) . Brilliantly composed and good technical performances. Highly recommended for 70's prog /psych/ heavy rock collectors.
