4 stars Guru Guru's third album relied much more on their skills and abilities as musicians and had much more structure to it although the music was still heavily influenced by illicit drug experiences. The tracks remained long and experimental but were more polished and no longer sounded like they were recorded in a public washroom. Produced by top German recording engineer, Conny Plank and signed to the Brain record label,Guru Guru were by this time one of the top live acts on the German rock scene. The listener can expect to encounter many different stylings and textures throughout this unusual work. Diversity abounds with "pop" sounding vocals, jazz phrasings, power chords amid free-form audio experiments relying on a multitude of studio effects from echo boxes to phase shifted drumming. Mani Nuemeir's drum talents are much more in evidence here than on the two previous albums as is his ubiquitous (yet strange) sense of humour. This is the recommended starting point for those not yet familiar with Guru Guru. The Mani Neumeir/Uli Trept/Ax Genrich line-up of the early 70's was considered by many to be the pen-ultimate edition of this classic German group and should be listened to LOUD!
