3 stars Cod English and poor singing can't detract from this very well played introductory album. Kraan, or 'Faucet' in Dutch, were probably Germany's foremost Jazz Fusion band in the 70's who were influenced by Pharoah Sanders and Zappa. However 'Kraan's' music was more structured and tight.

The opener is a brilliant tune summing up everything that's Krautrock in it's six minutes. Everything goes along nicely until the 18 minute jam in the form of track four - 'Head' which is really pretty crap, just sounding like the studio jam that it is. I do admit a certain fondness for drum flangers but this can't make up for the dire singing with lyrics that sound as though they were made up on the spot. Very ugly.

The bonus demos at the end are a complete waste of time, detracting rather than enhancing this cd release. They're basically the same tunes that you've just heard but with far poorer sound quality.
