4 stars "Crash! Blam! Thud! Yaaargh!", GROBSCHNITT is here! From "Jupp" (the perfect prelude to "The Excursion of Father Smith") to the very "Goodbye" (Auf Wiedersehen) song, "Jumbo" is a pretty peculiar piece of work. Right after "Ballermann" this spectacular album came along. If not as perfectly crafted as their first LP and far beyond from what the band proved in "Solar Music", this album's got its sparkly moments. I would say that due GROBSCHNITT's controversial way to explain music throughout their talent, "Jumbo" may be the kind of album you'd only recommend for completionists, but listening to this production is quite a challenge, and I mean that just as a manner of speech. Arguably, at this point of their career, it was said that undoubtedly "Ballermann" was their best work, but I have to say I disagree there. Within "Jumbo" I came across with what I consider one of their best suites ever composed: "Sunny Sunday's Sunset", and hand in hand with "Dream and Reality", I think of this band's third release as one to be remembered during the years to come for symphonic prog rock. Incredible.
