5 stars Cosmic jokers is the side project of Rolf Ulrich Kaiser (the founder of the Cosmic Couriers label)...this group includes many well known musicians from the krautrock scene as Klaus Schulze, the guitarist Manuel Gottsching (Ashra tempel), the drummer Harald Grosskopf (ART, Wallenstein)...This band and 'the cosmic jokers' album in particular represent cosmic/Space rock music at its finest. The two pieces can really reach the listener on a new a total abstract world, far from the earth, a universe made of dreams & psychedelic visions. 'GalacticJoke' is more a guitar orientated track with Gottsching unique style ( free form rock meet spacey arrangements). The second track is more meditative, dominated by intergalactic keyboards, doom-laden bass guitar lines & hypnotic helicopter drums pattern. This album is a supreme effort and an incredible experience. It remains one of my favourite of all time.
