4 stars This ablum offers a pleasant instrumental musical voyage to the world of classical psychecelic progressive rock elements. Neat walls of raw organs, guitars, bass and furiosly rolling drums summon forth a pleasant realm of acid rock where one can relax by escaping troubles of logical reasons. Violin fits marvelously as a supporting solo instrument to the sound context, strenghtening the sound perfectly. Fast grooves are counterbalanced with quieter sequences and short pieces building up from guitar chordprogressions and flute interludes. In the middle of the record jazzy lounging for fuzzy quitar in a relaxed hippie glade follows, allowing to be enrichened with dialogues for violin and keyboards. In the later part of the album are discovered very beautiful classic music melodic tunes, first with flute and harpshicord madrigal, then followed with a piece for violin accompanied with organs and bass guitar. Hollow calls indicate return to more atavistic levels of surreal rock poetry, leading to strongly riffed heavy acid jazzy groove. Funky and vital turns twist a deligthful trip in progressive rock styled treatments of jazz standards, giving associations of early German art rock bands sound. After a traditional chamber quickie, the album closes to a melancholic tune with beautifully weeping violin and subtle support from the group. If you like good quality late 1960's sounding heavy jazzy jamming blended with light European classical music, it is certainly found from this album.
