2 stars Now only human for starters is a better album than almost alive its a kind of pop album so alot different from most duul albums and i think thats what people dont like about it and plus no john weinzierl on this album so it might be a big put of for some people,the first song another morning isnt to bad its got the same feel as starters as almost alive but better,another morning is something you can listen to as its not a bad song but not duuls best though it would of made a single i think and might of worked,dont turn to stone the single from the album aint as good as the first song but still listenable both the first song and this have keyboard in it which sounds dated and sounds poppy but its ok,kirk morgan sounds to me ok but not very keen on this as its to much keyboard,and spaniards and spacemen has that keyboard in again which i hate and lasts to long just to poppy in the 70s for mealthough its an instrumental and one bit of spoken bit in it which is like wat is that in this for,kismet now this is great a brilliant songwith chris karrer on vocals and he sounds brilliant here everyone must hear this song its worth having this album just for this song alone its starts brilliant with trippy sound and then it starts with a keyboard and guitar which sounds great and the lyrics i love everything about this song i love and its about the only song i like on the whole album as it kind of has the old sound of duul in it in places kind of and at the 3.28 mark it sounds greater and mellow then at the 3,56 mark it has a bit which cypress hill sampled into one of there songs but dont know which one[and yes i like cypress hill to] its just a pity john weinzierl werent on this song it would of been better but still a good song for duul who had lost it by this time and karrer uses a mouth harp in this song to,pharao starts weird with something which reminds me of something recorded backwardsand not very keen on this track but the weirdness is kind of good as it shows duul are stiil able to be weird ,ruby lane starts with a bass bit which sounds okand not to bad but not great but ok its listenable but as its the last song i just carry on with it till it ends and think i should of listened to one of dull albums upto made in germany,the bonus tracks first one eistanz in timbuktu starts very eastern sounding and i quite like the sound of this as its kind of different and a little indian sounding or something like that but not brilliant,no sushi for camelsstarts ok and kind of spacey and has a womans voice in it oooing and agrrring which sounds ok and then a mans voice comes in and it sounds ok these two bonus tracks are not to bad and better than most of the album except for kismet,so really this album isnt great but kismet ia a must have but the only track on here really worth having,i give this a 2 star.
