4 stars This is very diverse, adventurous and funny album, inventive too (sometimes a bit untypical factor for often rather a bit mechanical and predictable ideas and twists in German 70s prog). The musical ideas and motives are changing fairly quickly and mostly arent connected directly, often not very much developing too, but many motives are still interesting.

We can hear here influences with a bit of flavour of 60s beat, early Canterbury ala Soft Machine or Moving Gelatine Plates, wild and driving instumental jazzrock jams and sometimes a bit of hardrock riffs too. There are even some quirky and funny speech moments - the band has apparently some sense of weird humour too. All musicians are good (especially the later Gnidrolog wind instruments player). Vocals are sometimes similar to the band Gracious.

Only drawbacks to me are some occasional 60s beat and hippie feeling and a bit outdated and mushy recording sound.

Still great album with inspiring early 70s atmosphere. 3,5 stars.
