3 stars ALTONA were a Jazz Rock band out of Germany who released two studio albums in the mid seventies, this is the debut from 1974. A seven piece with three of the guys playing sax and there's two guitarists. Vocals are loud and rough and an acquired taste I would say. He sings in English. I like Bonnek's description in the opening of his review but he's being polite, this just isn't that good. This is uptempo for the most part, tons of energy and the horns just blast in your face throughout, if it's not the horns it's the vocals(haha). Just not an album that I can enjoy for these reasons.
