3 stars So i posted a thread on the forum asking people to recommend albums for me to listen to and review, and one of the first people recommended that i listen to the first four Amon Duul II albums. Naturally I started with this album, Amon Duul II's debut album, "Phallus Dei". I can't say that i instantly fell in love with this album, but i will say that it is a solid piece of progressive music. The one track that stood out to me was the 20 minutes title track. The track takes a while to take off, but once it does, there's no stopping it. The bass has that nice almost Lemmy- esque sound, the lead guitar almost sounds like Jimi Hendrix, and the drums lay down some seriously hypnotic rhythms. The rest of the album is filled with more slightly shorter songs that in my opinion can get very boring at times. As the music is very psychedelic, i am sure it would have sounded better if i was on drugs, but still, even completely sober, i enjoyed this album very much. It isn't for everybody, that's for sure, but if you are looking for something eccentric, this certainly for you.
