Prog Reviewer
3 stars Amon Duul II's increasing tendency towards (mildly) less complex and more commercial psychedelic tunes, as witnessed following the triumph of Tanz der Lemminge, is in full effect on this album. Although it does have a few undeniably diverting tracks - Mozambique is a terrifying psyche-folk thrill-ride, and Renate Knaup-Kroetenschwanz's vocals on Jalousie seem uncannily like early Kate Bush at points. But the improvisation that characterised the group's earlier albums has more or less departed, and with it the sense of fun, and it hasn't been replaced with anything compelling enough to make this album a serious challenger to the likes of Yeti or Phallus Dei.
Warthur | 3/5 |
