2 stars The highlight of this album is the cover art that opens up revealing a woman smoking a joint that has the faces the the band members on it. It looks pretty cool.This album is rated fairly highly on another site and I just don't get it at all. GOMORRAH were a German band from the late sixties and early seventies.This isn't Krautrock and it really lacks dynamics and ideas.To be honest it's really a poor album as Hdfisch has already noted in his review.

"Journey" has this beat with repetitive guitar melodies as reserved vocals join in.This is late sixties sounding. "Trauma" is the best track by far clocking in at over 13 minutes it at least has that Krautrock spirit. It's uninspired at first but then the guitar starts to improvise and turns more aggressive 4 1/2 minutes in. Organ to the fore after 9 1/2 minutes. "Yesterday" builds as drums, guitar then organ joins in.Vocals around a minute. "Lola" opens with drums as some fuzzy guitar leads then organ arrives and leads.The guitar is back.Vocals after 1 1/2 minutes as it settles back.

"Dead Land" is simply not very good at all. "Summer" is better with the guitar, bass and drums standing out. Organ follows then vocals. "Rainbowlight" is really the only other track other than "Trauma" that I like. "Dance Of Circles" has some flute late but it's another bad tune. "Firehands" is energetic early on but it goes downhill when the vocals join in.

2 stars it is. Fans or collectors only.
