Yes by all means, please throw this dude a pair of boxers or something. Apart from the hypnotic wee-wee cover, Minautorus is not a super-original non-Krautrock german band. I hear lots and lots of Novalis and Eloy, only done in a more boring way. The annoying german accent (like Eloy!) is present all the time only relieved by more or less convincing instrumental passages.

I'm tempted to dissrespect the streetcred given to this record, I find it entertaining at times, some songs have catchy keyboard melodies. I like their thick solo keyboard sound and their use of string synth, it's well done. But again, all this has been heard in (or litteraly stolen from) Sommerabend (Novalis) and Dawn (Eloy) in much professional ways.

Some things have more value in terms of search than musical prowness. This album will fetch some serious dollars if you hunt for it and stands in the 'obscure' bin for sure; an album you can brag about owning mainly because of the cover and the Holy Grail search factor.

Some prog obscurities have more flair so don't break your piggy bank.
