2 stars I really wanted to vouch for this album. I discovered it because it was on the famous german Brain label (which has basically the who's who of krautrock and even Berlin school electronic music). As you'll get from other reviews, this is only krautrock for one song, the opening track China. It's alright but isn't really groundbreaking. I will go on record to say it's the best song on this album by a longshot, but the rest of the 30~ minutes is a demonstration of wasted potential. There are some particularly cool parts in Devil's Dream, I Want You, and especially the closing track Material Darkness. If you enjoy blues rock nuggets, you might find something cool on this record. I love listening to "forgotten" bands, hearing the sloppiness, lofi quality, and sometimes strange interpretations of the blues that you find on albums like this. Is it dime a dozen? Sort of, sadly. It's not bad, but I found this album to be especially disappointing considering the label, the cover art (no, this will not blow your mind), and the song titles. I don't want to paint this as a bad album because it's not, but it just doesn't have that much going for it aside from a few cuts, which in my book makes this a collector's album. 2/5 Stars, playing the opener on my radio show and probably not revisiting the rest ever again.
