5 stars I acquired Rockpommel's Land when I was first getting interested in prog, after I had listened out the Yes and ELP and Genesis albums I could get my hands on. After acquiring Ege Bamyasi and listening that out I decided the Germans were worth investigating. Through those travels I tried Grobschnitt but it never took hold until maybe two years ago. I had read Solar Music is the Cadillac of prog live albums, but I stayed away, hoping the Grobschnitt sound would take hold in my ears. I heard Solar Music I from Ballerman on prog radio and was blown away. Grobschnitt has taken hold and Solar Music deserves all the accolades. I'm maybe forty listens in and it has become like a drug. I'm lucky to have the 2CD remastered edition. The last twenty minutes of the bonus disc is music sent from heaven indeed. I can't give anything but the top mark here and have to disagree with anyone who does. I think this is the first live album I've truly listened to that moves me to the point of picturing the band onstage and fantasizing about witnessing their eccentrically goofy glory.
