4 stars Nine Days Wonder's self-titled debut album is a stunning, audacious slab of craziness. And I mean that in a good way. The album consists of 4 tracks, "Fermillon" (divided into 5 parts: "Puppet Dance," Square," "Hope?," "Morning Spirit," and "Fermillon Himself"), "Moss had Come," "Apple Tree," and "Drag Dilemma" (also divided into 5 parts: "Monotony," "Stomach's Choice," "Monotony 2," "Interlude," and "Dilemma"). I won't go into detail for each track, mainly because there is so much going on with each track that I just don't have the time. However, take some Zappa, 70's hard & psych rock, folk, loungey jazz, a dash of krautrock, and add in some progressive elements and that should give you some limited idea of what this album is about. The album is energetic and never boring. I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the really freaky spoken word part, "Morning Spirit," from the "Fermillon" suite, which goes on too long and is super weird (even for my taste). Nevertheless, I highly recommend this album of quirky German wackiness for anyone who is even remotely interested by the description above. 4.5 stars.
