4 stars This is THE album for electric organ sounds treatment!

We are talking about German progressive rock. Surprisingly, the only keyboard used is: ORGAN! But watch out: the textures involved are rarely seen before! The organ is sometimes floating, sometimes rythmic, sometimes melodic, with or without distortion and full of miscellaneous effects. It is omnipresent here and never sounds the same!! The electric guitar is rather hard rock, but can be distortion free too. There are many acoustic guitar parts. There are some rare minimalist flute parts. The bass can be absolutely fast, present and complex. The drums are loud and not monotonous. The first track last 17 minutes and is very progressive, full of rythm changes. The songs definitely sound like JETHRO TULL's "Thick as a Brick" and early FOCUS, all without the sophisticated flutes.
