3 stars Definitely a heck of a lot slicker here! Again, they have the chops to pull it off, but for people who discovered them via that grungy debut album, this will come as a bit of a shock.

The high point is definitely the fast-tempo workout "Vollgas ahoi", which features some absolutely blistering bass playing from Hattler and a breathtaking Moog solo from Bischof. Likewise, the hard-core riffing on the title track is pretty damn intense, reminding me a bit of Caravan or Hatfield and the North.

Nothing here is what I'd call "bad", but in the "quirky personality" department, I find it a bit lacking. "Silky Way" is definitely a pretty guitar showcase in the style of "Lonesome Liftboy", but the too-clean production just seems a little off-putting.

So, yeah, very professional, very polished. But something's missing.
