3 stars Very interesting debut album of German band. Differently from many their kraut-rock colleagues, band's music is strongly based in British blues-rock and psychedelic rock tradition, with folksy elements. In fact, their music could be described as heavy bluesy psychedelic Jethro Tull.

They have flautist on board, and flute soloing adds to music very folksy (or Jethro Tull-like) flavour. Other important components - heavy Hammond passages, psychedelic guitars and social-critical lyrics. Possibly, vocal is not for everyone taste, but it's ok for me.

Jazzy arrangements are presented, but in all album's music couldn't be named jazz-rock. I like their melodic compositions, organ passages, heavy guitars and a bit naive sound in whole. Nice atmosphere of early 70-s. Only some repetitive songs structure reminds their origin and some connection with krautrock.

My rating is 3+.
