4 stars If you first heard Guru Guru through the fusion-aimed DANCE OF THE FLAMES and went into this album in straight succesion like I did, the differences in sound are beyond noticeable. It's almost as if you listened to two different bands. HINTEN is anything but normal, anything but sane, and only those up for the challenge should listen, but that's where the appeal lies strange enough.

The whole thing is drenched with rich psychedelic jamming that generally goes into double digit territory. The band pulls in a tight, hard sound that in tracks like ''Electric Funk'', grab your attention right away or possibly keep it like on ''Bo Diddley''. In major contrast, the other two jams border on abstract, avant-garde psych rock with little semblance of structure. Nobody in the melody-loving camp is going to want to touch HINTEN with a ten foot pole, so this is for the adventurous or those that can get mesmerised by this type of stuff. Add in the occasional vocals of one Mani Neumeier who sounds like the leader of the Monty Python Gumbys, and this is pure joy for jam, Krautrock and space rock enthusiasts.

Sinusoid | 4/5 |
