4 stars AHORA MAZDA were from Holland and this is their only release from 1970. They offer up a Psychedelic / /Krautrock blend of music with lots of flute. I did think of the Proto-Prog genre a lot too. We get a fair amount of vocals, sax and drums / percussion as well. Oh yeah there's lots of strange effects too.

"Spacey Tracy" is a cool song. I like the lyrics because it reminds me of this girl in high school we hung out with.We called her Spinney. Drums, vocals and flute lead in this catchy track. The last 5 minutes is all instrumental as guitar comes in with drums and percussion. Piano 5 1/2 minutes in. "Timeless Dream" is led by soft flute early and strummed guitar. Drums and vocals 1 1/2 minutes in. "Oranje Vrijstaat" has these odd and different sounds that come and go. Sax is prominant late with lots of atmosphere.

"Fallen Tree" kicks in after a minute with mainly flute and drums. Great sound. Guitar before 4 1/2 minutes and it stays all instrumental until just before 9 minutes when the vocals return to end it. "Power" features strummed guitar, bass and flute early. Vocals 2 minutes in including some processed vocals. Guitar solo before 4 1/2 minutes as drums continue. Nice. "Fantasio" opens with tribal-like drumming. Sax after 2 minutes becomes dissonant. Flute before 5 minutes.

I think this will appeal to fans of the genres I mentioned at the start of the review. This is sort of a rare find to be honest and is worth tracking down.
