3 stars EPSILON were a German band who put out three studio albums in the early seventies. This is the second one from 1972. Even though they hired Dieter Dierks as the studio engineer and drummer Curt Cress (ORANGE PEEL) to play on 4 tracks this isn't as good as the debut. "Move On" is pretty straight forward really with some heavy songs and commercial sounding tracks.

"Walkin' On My Way" is not the best track to start with as it's my least favourite. Some good organ runs though and I like the guitar 2 minutes in but overall too straight forward. "She Belongs To Me" is much better. An uptempo rocker although it does settle back at times. Vocals before 1 1/2 minutes as the organ pulsates.The guitar solos 2 1/2 minutes in. "Feelings" is laid back with flute, a beat and reserved vocals. Good song.

"What About Future" and "Move On" are both short but intense tracks. "Reichelsheim" is led by the guitar out of the gate but it settles back when the vocals arrive. "Hear Me Cryin'" has light drums and floating organ as reserved vocals join in. It does pick up each time on the chorus. "Waiting" is heavier with vocals. A guitar solo comes in after a minute. A nice instrumental section after 3 minutes. "Don't Know Why" is commercial sounding with backing vocals but I still like it,especially the keys after 2 minutes.

3 stars.
