3 stars My first foray into the world of the Amon Duuls.

This is the third album from this German band and a highly rated one too. Which I can understand. I am an outsider coming into Krautrock and I find a lot of interesting things here.

The music is based on and developed from the more experiemental stuff The Beatles did at Revolver. The Indian influences and the more basic melody lines is there. The added on elements are the very strong hypnotic spaced out rock here with loops and added sound effects. The music on this album has a very strong avant-garde element too.

The sound is vintage 1970s and very good. So is the vocalist. The rest of the instrumentations sounds good to me too. I also very much like this jazzy rhythms here. This album has a lot going for it. It is sorely missing some really killer tracks though. It is a very good album with a lot of interesting details, but it really does not click that well with me. I am though a very happy owner of this album. I reserve my right to up this review up to a four star later on, but it is only a three and a halfer for me at this stage.

3.5 stars
