3 stars Guru Guru's debut is characteristic example of psychedelic-jamming stream in early krautrock. Band plays chaotic often almost free form compositions with accent on acid-influenced atmosphere,not rhythm, composition or melody.

For sure there are some enjoyable moments, especially combination of freaky electric guitar soloing and chaotic drumming, but in whole this short album sounds more as jamming rehearsals than real album for me. I just can missed the music under all these scratching guitar noises and spacey/acid sounds.

Possibly it's more question of taste, but I obviously prefer Guru Guru's great later jazz-fusion influenced works. This album still stays great evidence of its time, but more listening for raw krautrock fans, than really great prog rock album.
