The Truth
4 stars I'm not a big fan of krautrock at all, in fact I only listen to Faust and Amon Duul II at the moment, but this album caught my attention. It starts off with the acoustic-guitar dominated song Syntelmans March of the Roaring Seventies which with it's Dylan-esque lyrics and folk-rock/krautrock sound totally amazes me.

"After a long introduction you can hear the story which happend during the roaring seventies. In July, people sweat in the sun sitting feet-by-feet watching the big game."

The next song, Restless Skylight Transistor Child, is a lot heavier and more krautrock but is still pretty good. The Marilyn Monroe Memorial Church is one of my favorite improvisations, a type of music which I don't care much for. The last three songs sound pretty close to the same to me but they are all good and you have to love the title Stumbling Over Melted Moonlight! This is probably the best krautrock album ever!
