4 stars THIRSTY MOON are a German band who play a Jazz Rock style of music with flute, sax and cello besides the traditional instruments. Lots of percussion as well.There are vocals (English) on two tracks. Lots to like here and I love the jamming hypnotic style they often offer up.

"I See You" opens with a catchy ryhthm with lots of percussion and keys. A change 2 minutes in as it settles down with vocals. A new melody a minute later that is quite relaxing and trippy with lots of guitar. Vocals return 4 1/2 minutes as sax comes in as well. Sax become more prominant 6 minutes in. "Trash Man" is the longest track at 14 1/2 minutes. Lots of tempo changes early as they switch gears a lot. Vocals before a minute. A complete change 2 minutes in as acoustic guitar and light drums take over. Back to a heavy beat 3 minutes in with strong vocals. Sax after 4 minutes. I like the organ after 5 minutes, great sound 6 1/2 minutes in. Sax is back a minute later. Guitar really starts to get aggressive 11 minutes in. Another good melody 13 minutes in with drums leading the way. Sax is back late. This song is excellent. Love the twists and turns.

"Tune In" has such a good intro. Great beat as sax plays over top. The tempo picks up 2 minutes in as sax continues to lead the way. A really good song. "You'll Never Come Back" has no melody or beat until 2 1/2 minutes in when drums and sax come in. The sound builds. Piano and bass 5 minutes in. It settles with cello after 6 1/2 minutes. It gets experimental a minute later. A good beat with sax 8 1/2 minutes in as sax starts to lead the way. Flute after 12 minutes to end it. "Das Fest Der Volker" is a fairly mellow track that builds.

This one took a while to click but now I wonder why it took so long. I like their ideas and style. An interesting and enjoyable listen. Quite the erotic cover art as well.
