2 stars Almost alive well thats a good name for the album as its right as duul here sound like there dieing the duul have lost it big time klaus ebert on vocals on one blue morning[track 1]alone,come on he just doesnt sound a singer and sounds kind of crap but the music aint to bad maybe they should of just had chris karrer do the vocals and have done with it as it would of sounded better,goodbye my love starts kind a bit not to bad just not excellentthe first 2 songs on this album arnt great but aint today tomorrows yesterday with chris karrer on voacals makes things more promising and is a great song to which starts with good sound and karrer in good form and at the 3 min.50 mark the song just gets going with piano sound and trumpet and really a good feel kicks in and this makes the song the best on the whole album and is worth having just for this song i love this song,hallelujah starts with a feel like it might be good and it reminds me of something from a 1970s tv show theme tune so not so good[no offence to 70s tv but the theme music was hilarious in them days]it might sound better live but its just kind of a bit dull i think but ok at times,feeling uneasy starts with nice guitar part with stefan zauner on vocals and has sax in this which makes it an ok song but zauners voice dont do it basicly but there is bits in the song i dont mind but wouldnt say this is brilliant but ok,live in jericho starts brilliant it has a good drum part at the near start and leopold sounds good here[no john bonham but for leopold he sounds great]really going for itand then a bass part comes inwhich sounds kind of nice and kind of relaxing and a keyboard bit comes in which in with the bass part and sounds nice and the proper keyboard part comes in with the guitar and the guitar part has to be john weinzierls best ive heard his best,its a pity it had to be on one of the worst duul albums a good end to a duul album which isnt that good but 2 good songs on it and they are aint today tomorrows yesterday,and live in jericho,the bonus tracks cosmic insects is something i switch of everytime its a karrer track but not good i cant understand why its on this album as its a waste of time,live in obergurgl sounds like the rif from one blue morning i think it is but a waste of time putting it on here,kitchen jam is the best of the bonus tracks but aint brilliant but at times listenable,i give this 2 stars as for the 2 good songs and as for the rest of it it isnt worth a piss on if its on fire,2 stars.
