4 stars This is one of those albums you could file under Krautrock or Jazz / Rock. This is a strange album though with some avant leanings. These guys seem to be blazing their own trail.

"Bird-Night Of The Seventh Day" opens with gentle guitar and sax but then the music stops. Vocals come in and they definetly sound different (haha). Organ follows. I really like the sax and organ to end it. "Gammeloni" features some crazy sax before 2 minutes and the bass is prominant. The guitar after 5 minutes is great then we get some dissonant sax when the guitar stops. It seems to speed up some late. "Uzzek Of Rigel IV" opens with those attractive (wink) sounding vocals as sax, drums and organ support in this uptempo intro. A bass solo then vocals return. It settles some after 2 minutes.The guitar before 4 1/2 minutes goes on and on. This is the highlight of the whole album for me.

"Suite" is the 20 1/2 minute closer. It's raw and aggressive early with some fuzz. Sax comes in. Guitar and piano follow. Bass is prominant before 2 minutes. A change after 3 1/2 minutes. It's still fairly aggressive it just sounds different. A change after 8 1/2 minutes as it settles with organ. Sitar a minute later. It kicks back in around 11 1/2 minutes in. Settles some 15 1/2 minutes in. Big finish.

This album has it's fans and i'm one of them, and I really appreciate the way these guys play.
