1 stars this is probably one of the worst Krautrock albums of all times (and believe me, I am a big fan of Krautrock, and I like the other albums of the Cosmic Jokers a lot). what's more, the lyrics are so childish and ridiiculous, building up a cult around acid-guru Timothy Leary (with whom the band was associated; he appears on Ash Ra Tempel's "Seven Up"). lines like "Tim bleibt in der Schweiz. Tim bleibt bei uns" ("Tim stays in Switzerland. Tim stays with us") really make one laugh in their naivety. as to the music: the Cosmic Jokers need side-long epics for their music to flow. the short tracks on this album are not something the band can shine in. an album which is a curiosity, but that's all. just goes to show the hype of Rolf Ulrich Kaiser and his marketing of "Cosmic Music"
