5 stars In 1969, AMON DÜÜL II released a curious but incredibely furious album, just before the massive "Yeti" and "Dance of the lemmings". Musically, the band delivers a kind of psychedelic rock, largely made on perpetual jammings with a certain sense of humour, a lot of raw guitar parts and some delicate folk violin parts (the title track). There's also a constant use of percussions, incantatory, haunted voices harmonised by the lovely girl singer Rentate Knaup. The opening track represents Amon Duul typical sound at their beginning: an intense and primitive heavy rock with a great dose of space effects. The additional and unreleased tracks offered on the last edition of this album are also not bad at all (a lot of instrumental improvisations). In its totality, "Phallus Dei" is mesmerizing and remains a fine approach to AMON DÜÜL II musical creativity.
