5 stars What an amazing palpitation, what an incredible thunderstorm, created with lots of normal instruments and lots of abnormal music vibes. It's a remarkable surprise this album "The World Of Genius Hans" be released in 1972, the sunrise period of Canterbury / avantgarde scene all over the world. MGP members' power is fantastic and crazy, and their union of music status is very rigid really ... you will get shocked via their magnificent sound gems each of which should be tied confirmedly with others.

Their superb vibe above mentioned can be felt via the first titled track. Many essences this one has ... madness, delicacy, and intensive explosion ... all of them come from the inner space beneath their complex mind. But yes, not difficult to understand. You can keep yourself directly upon the soundscape, and purely enjoy their pleasant sound trip. They should make you happy and crazy along with their tricky bullet shower.

Let me say this album might be produced as a majestic satanic suite completely, and not be divided with pieces of tracks but all songs can be thought as movements of a suite. Until the last track "Un Jour ...", they might squeeze their quirkiness deep into our brain. Again I shout, what a surprise this album be completed in 1972. No suspicion their novelty and bizarre soundscape should construct permanently not only the Canterbury but also RIO / Avant music scene as a perfect sound credential. Bravo.
