3 stars Debut album of let say krautrock supergroup - two founder members of Guru Guru plus founding member of Universe Zero on bass in new band released their debut 35+ years after their peak time!

Music is modernized spacey and slightly psychedelic jamming. Guys for sure know how to play kraut, and you will hardly find technical mistakes there. Even more - compositions there sound as bridge between krautrock of early 70-s and modern spacey prog. I believe heavy fans of early Guru Guru's works will enjoy this music a lot!

For me ( I really love some Guru Guru albums, but more from their jazz fusion period) this music sound as pleasant memorabilia. Being really nice spacey psychedelic, compositions there even don't pretend they are something new, experimental or at least strongly refreshed. Pleasant listening for old fans ? nothing else.

It's not so bad to have such album for listening and even more - to see kraut legends playing live. But I am sure this album is far from being an event in modern krautrock, and it will hardly attract new listeners to that genre.
