2 stars It starts off with a "riff" on kazoo and amazingly doesn't get better from there. While this sophomore effort from Bavarian collective SPARIFANKAL is decidedly more folk oriented than their debut, such a superficial impression is largely based on the acoustic instrumentation. The unplugged mix includes guitars, flute, dulcimer, harmonica, and banjo, and the overall mood is more laid back. The distinctiveness of the Bavarian dialect aside, "Hurazdax Drudnhax" owes more to psychedelic US roots rock of an earlier time than to their countrymen. This doesn't make the usually plodding but sometimes flighty funky blues any more interesting. Like on the first album, I'm hard pressed to find a highlight passage let alone track, and would rather just move along and recommend you do the same. OK, how about the goofy "Im Joar 2000" with its oom pa pa oomf?
