Prog Reviewer
2 stars The reformed Amon Düül II, in disappointing form, in a concert made in support of their reformation effort, NADA MOONSHINE NUMBER, the title track of which opens this show. Chris, Renate and Lothar are here (along with Falk, but in a non-musical capacity), aided by some young guns.

There's more songs you know than you'll recognize from the titles presented. "Speed Inside My Shoes" is really "I Can't Wait: Part 2", while "Dry Your Ear" is actually "Riding On A Cloud". All the tracks are infused with modern techno sounds that rob the tracks of their original energy and homogenize everything? Why do bands feel the need to do this-add bland techno "beats/breaks" production to their old material to legitimize themselves to snooty young hipsters? I've noticed Hawkwind (among others) doing this as well, and it's sickening.

Progbear | 2/5 |
