2 stars A new and exciting band for me, GROBSCHNITT. A KrautRock band and I am not so sure if I understand this form of prog rock or German humor.

The music is pretty epic and spaced out with not much happening during the fifty two minutes. They tried to copy YES on this album ? Really ? Well, I cannot claim they made a success out of that task. Must try harder next time........ I prefer GROBSCHNITT trying to be GROBSCHNITT, to be honest. My reference is Solar Lover. This album is more an experiment into something GROBSCHNITT does not grasp. Yes, there are some good music here. This album is by no means a failure. But it is at times mind-numbing boring. You have some piano, keys, guitars and a mad vocalist. The music is somewhere between Krautrock and Symphonic Prog. The result is not good at all and I have no tunes I can recall has made an impression. Just some OK pieces of music in between mediocrity. Maybe I should give this album some more time. But just after a couple of days of listening, I simply does not get it.

2.5 stars and moving onto their others albums.
