4 stars This album along with the group's self titled record are in my opinion the most pleasing of this interesting project band.

A-side opens straight with drums to an intense acid rock improvisation, which evolves pleasantly and following the logic of the dreams, leading to a beautiful religious cosmic revelation in assured Klaus Schulze way. Some jazzy tryout's lead to the pastures of more open and free musical playgrounds.

B-side presents synthesizer layers which lead to a warming up for the avantgardistic trip, going more deeper than the first side of the album. Later the jam starts to get stable rhythm and groove from the guitar and drums. Interesting contrast between accessible and elitist. Also cosmic ladies Gille and Rosie visit the album for some speakings over the shamanstic sequences. Sadly the music fades out as there sounded something interesting to start with the keyboards. Maybe this sense frustration is the cause for my general dislike to fadeout solutions. If they do not affect the listening experience but support it, then there's no problems with it.

Anyway, this record is in my opinion a very good comsic krautrock album, but maybe not as good as their self-titled masterpiece.
