5 stars Probably the best album of Amon Duul II with "Wolf City".

Structurally speaking, this album is finally at the level of other english prog bands during the same time (73-75). The sound is finally clear, instruments are finally mastered by the musicians. Pretty much what Amon Dull II did before "Wolf City" is hardly accessible for classical prog fans (i.e. fans of Genesis, Yes, ELP, Gentle Giant, VDGG, etc): indeed, the german musicians were not experienced enough, until the release of "Carnival in Babylon".

As a result, I completely disagree with other comments ("the album quickly runs out of ideas", etc).With "Wolf City", this album is an achievemment over the other albums: not all tunes are perfects, however you can count on some exceptional simple tunes (A morning Excuse, Fly united, Apocalyptic Bore, etc), which makes me think of Pink Flyod in their early days. A Must have, I give 5 stars for the simplicity and the efficiency of what should be a prog rock album from 1973 until 1975.
