4 stars A great debut by American hippie band that moved to Germany! The album consist of two long jazz- rock tracks. To make things interesting they make a sudden change in mood and rhythm. This could be interpreted as a prog element in their music. I don't hear any krautrock influence as stated by one reviewer. The group has a lot of energy best presented in extended jams. The best part is when all band members start improvising including vocal and percussion. They know how to groove! The atmosphere is coloured with nice flute and sax playing. Drums and guitars are also excellent. I usually don't like improvised music with long noodling but this band makes it haunting and pleasant to the ear. This album is closer to jazz-rock than prog but a lot of prog listeners find it compelling!
