3 stars A bit of an obscure goodie, this one. This German band was pretty shortlived, this being the only album from this band.

Cannabis India was a Keith Emerson clone with some added Ludwig Van Beethoven adulations too. The instruments was basically tangents. The sound on this album is one hundred percent Keith Emerson adulation. Thankfully, Cannabis India is much more true to the original and adds far more church organs to the sound than the other big Keith Emerson copycat from Germany; The Pink Mice.

The sound here is pretty good with some tasty church organs and melodies. Cannabis India has stolen chunks of ELPs Tarkus though. Parts of this album is like a "spot the Tarkus bit" game. A pretty hilarious game for the whole family, btw. Besides of that, this album is pretty good throughout. I find nothing wrong with it, but I am not overwhelmed positive about it either. It is a cloned piece of music, no less and no more.
