3 stars A minor Krautrock classic, although I suppose this would be Krautfolk. The duo's first album was unimpressive, a bunch of hippie songs about "looking for people" and passing the joint, driven by monotonous twelve-string arrangements. This album is a jump ahead, featuring some nice keyboards and percussion. Dolly Holmes' vocals have advanced considerably, and she provides some beautiful atmospheres with her breathy voice. There are a couple of long tracks that develop from gentle songs into ambient sections. This and Dom's "Edge of Time" album both remind me of Pink Floyd's early gauzy psych soundtracks like "Zabriskie Point" and particularly "More" in their combination of eerie organ textures and acoustic guitars. The only part that bothers me is a noodly psychedelic jam on the first track that sounds like a bad Ash Ra Tempel copy, but it's a matter of taste. Long psych guitar freak outs ain't my bag. Nonetheless, despite that caveat, this is a charming album that psych- and acid- folkies will really enjoy. More like 3.5, but better say 3.
