2 stars Band,well-known as best ever English Krautrock team, on this album plays very different music, and there are just a small Kraut traces,if at all.

Their albums from early 70-s were all good,some almost excellent. After few years and some changes in line-up, "Recycled" doesn't sound as they were ever related with Krautrock at all.

OK, some synth/electronic effects don't mean nothing. This music is more British art-rock from the second half of 70-s. In moments even AOR elements could be found in albums compositions, but mostly this album sound as bad clone of Supertramp. With some breaks in composition structures, some trips to what few years ago was psychedelic, but on this album sound dated and artificial both. Plenty of melodic moments, even choral, soft-rock polish,etc.

To be honest, musicians are all professional, and there still some nice moments could be found. But in all this album is real disappointment, release for collectors and band's fans mostly.

My rating is 2+.
