3 stars Hijack is an album which is a bit different from the previous duul albums its not a bad thing just not so exciting maybe put this on when your on a hangover or something,it starts with i cant wait which goes into pt 2,which is a good start to the album which has lothar meid on the vocals and the bass guitar goes with the song well even though its easy to learn,next is mirror with john weinzierl on vocals which i quite like this song as the sax soundnice here kind of relaxing which goes for the whoile album,traveller has renate on the vocals and has flute in it which sounds good[which kind of reminds me canned heats going up the country i think it is] and renate sounds like she always does on this kind of high on this one though which is good,your not alone has lothar meid on vocals this song is another kind of relaxing track with flute and sax which sounds good this reminds me of a sleepy afternoon realaxing in front of the fire it just has that feel to me,explode like a star speeds things up with chris karrer on vocals which is a good track with karrer sounding a little kind of weird but not bad so its a good track and renate when she comes in makes the song better singing explode like a star,da gualelope starts jazzy which sonds good kind of it sounds like a track which could of been in the french connection etc but just the music though and the strings on this track sound good and after the start theres a bit where it sounds like someones on drugs[well it is amon duul 11] and the music with sax sounds good and the strings are just so 70s movie to me not a bad thing though,lonely woman comes in with chris karrer on vocals which is very jazzy especially the bass and karrer sounds jazzy too a good song but some might think its dull the sax middle part is a part i like which sounds easy to play [thats if youve got a sax that is],liquid whisper starts with keyboards which are easy to learn and the acoustic guitar sounds good to and renate sings good on this if you like renates voice you will like this song as she sounds like she likes this song to me,archy the robot has chris karrer on this which he sounds good and its not a bad song toand is a good end to an album which to me reminds me of a lazy afternoon with a hangover relaxing,give this ago as its not a bad album but there is better amon duul 11 albums try the others before this one first like yeti ,wolf city,vive la trance etc there best places to start first but this is a good album it just sounds a little like a lazy album but thats not a bad thing,i give it 3 stars.
