4 stars It would be an expression of the music character that this Trio exactly did and be opening of the idea to support an initial music character in the activity of this band. The expression of the band by the organization of Neumeier-Trepte-Genrich accomplishes the revolution from this album further as a result. The revolution will be able to be caught remarkably exactly by this album.

Directionality of the band and a mental part were told as a situation of the band as the revolution in the secession of Uli Trepte. As for the change, some guesses will be able to be done through this album. Situation in which it faces opening music character that Mani Neumeier cultivated. Or, it is partial where some humours are demonstrated by the music character. The divergence of the music character given between Uli Trepte that takes charge of a serious part for the music character of the band is expressed further through this album.

The member of "Faust" had made remarks in the interview in the past. It ..".. doesn't know the expression by the musician of the and others at all. "Thus, we like march" This remark might ..".. have an original viewpoint that catches a racial subjectivity including Guru Guru and Faust and music. A variety of music characters might be derived as a part that surrounded psychedelic and a social situation if the dawn and the situation were certainly confirmed in the item of Krautrock and it offer it to the listener. It guesses the music character introduced by other countries to be in the point to have already established as a part of Krautrock.

The vicinity of Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix as music that Krautrock is made a standard as some parts connected at the dawn of Krautrock It is likely to be able to enumerate it. However, if the remark by the member of above- mentioned Faust was unified, it is likely to have absorbed it as the introduction of simple psychedelic neither or Blues but an indeed original part.

Or, initial of Krautrock will be able to enumerate the expression of the rhythm by characterizing. The rhythm and Groove that Krautrock had established it can listen to the point to express from the angle besides the genre of other countries. This Guru Guru might be the one if it thinks about it as a part where the melody was also expressed. And, the music character of Guru Guru until Uli Trepte secedes the band is a part of the absorption of Heavy Rock and psychedelic. Or, it is partial of the introduction of Stoner Rock and Downer Music to express in this album. The expression of psychedelic and Blues that often did a certain seed Amon Duul and Can had been established. However, the revolution of Guru Guru might have been very fast the speed. Of course, this album might have become a very important album for them as a part and an expression to take those elements.
