3 stars Amon Duul II's Hijack is often dissed by reviewers due to its mish-mash of conflicting styles from track to track, and it's sometimes questionable vocals. It plays out like a compilation of singles from different time frames. From the Papa was a rolling stone funk of De Guadaloop to the Bowie-like You're not alone this album gradually grew on me and I learned to like it. I guess I fell for the babelfish-like German to English lyrics and the quirky but quite talented arrangements. I did not care though for Archie, the albums namesake, or his bogus cover art. I would not use this record as an example of the power of Amon Duul II though. Yeti gets my vote for that.
