4 stars This third album was originally released in 1975 on the green Brain label. I happen to own the later orange label pressing on LP. This LP really deserves to be sought after by audiophiles because it's by far the best sounding LP I own, the sound quality just blew me away! And there are no advertisements of it being an audiophile recording of any kind, just leading me to believe this is just an ordinary LP (but with unusually great sound quality). Enough on that, let's get with the music. At this point, GROBSCHNITT has turned in to a full-blown symphonic prog rock band. The influences of YES, GENESIS, and even CAMEL are present, with extended compositions, such as "The Excursion of Father Smith". Eroc's twisted humor pops in from time to time. Wildschwein (Stefan Danielak) has one of the more peculiar voices in prog rock, so if his singing turns you off, you might want to avoid their albums. I also have a problem with some of this album, as parts of it are unbearably cheesy. I can see why this album is a bit overlooked compared to the likes of "Rockpommel's Land" or "Solar Music Live". But the album is still worth owning, and if you're in to GROBSCHNITT, this album would be in your collection anyways.
