3 stars WALLENSTEIN were one of the forefathers of Germany's Krautrock scene and who managed to release a number of great early albums with Blitzkrieg drawing 1st blood from me, but years later re-discovering the beauty of "Mother Universe". WALLEINSTEIN were led by the analog keyboard wizardy of Jurgen Dollase (organ, mellotron and clavinet) and the percussive talents of Harald Grosskopf. Contrary to the majority of reviews I have read over the years about "Mother Universe", I dig the vocalist to a large degree and think he fits the music perfectly. "Mother Universe" is a wonderful space prog album with a nice cross section of influences including folk and acid space rock. Instrumentally this album houses some of WALLENSTEIN's best works IMHO and title track "Mother Universe" is a pure delight every time I plop it over the ol' speakers. "Mother Universe" delivers some lovely guitar jams with some great drum, bass and keyboard interplay. Granted a bit Quirky but I love it...
