2 stars Again losing their way, with only Weinzierl, Karrer and Leopold offering links to the classic band. The group is filled out by Klaus Ebert (formerly of psych-pop act the Petards) and Stefan Zauner (later leader of teenypop act Münchener Freiheit). It's bad enough that Ebert and Zauner, who should have been relegated to sidemen, contributed material to the album, but their tedious and inane pop music actually dominated the songwriting.

High points include the group composition "Flower Of The Orient", with its lovely Near East textures, and Weinzierl's instrumental "Crystal Hexagram". Karrer's lone contribution, the lengthy "The Only Thing", sounds more like Southern rock than Krautrock, but it's a lot more vital than Ebert and Zauner's dopey bubblegum.
