4 stars And what kind of soundtracks these are! This german psychedelic - often acid - record contains some movietracks of some not welknown movies. The song range from psychobeat (Deadlock, Mothersky) to soulfull lazymusic (Tango Whiskyman and She brings the Rain) and to crazy (drunken?) sang agressive songs (Don't turn the light on, leave me alone).

The german psychedelic movement began somewhat late, around 1968 with Can and Amon Dul II as primary examples. This soundtracks tape is a good example of german acid rock. The krautrock aproach delivers Can some good rocky feel and sometimes unique-sounding landscapes. The jungleflutes in Tango Whiskey Man were a great finding.

The idea of psychobeat is an continues drumming assisted by bass and endless guitar experiments. It shakes you back and forth and never stops- well, let's say it seems like it never stops and real good psychobeat makes you want it to be endless. Mother Sky is a real good example of these psychobeat and is one of the best songs of the record. Side two may be somewhat better then side one anyway.

Side one deserves three stars and side two four stars. Well, let's be fair, I'll give it four!
