4 stars Clearly the best Amon Duul's album with the original line up. Always primitive kraut / folk improvisations but the emphasis is now put on more structured songs. The abusive, mucky jam attempts of the previous efforts let the place to an easy listening psychedelic folk "trip" and it works formidably. The music retains the listener's attention thanks to intriguing, emotional compositions. The first track starts with catchy, cool guitar melodies, acoustic percussions, with "pastoral", "peaceful" flute lines. A tremendous energy prevails. Lyrics are all about "peace and love"; "Love is peace and freedom is harmony" said the voice. The following track carries on the same beautiful, semi-acoustic psych atmosphere. It alternates experimental, improvised ideas to serene, inspired structured sections. This one is instrumental, rather "archaic" in sound but really efficient. The two bonus tracks are slow, floating, moody pieces with "stoned" melodic vocals. "Eternal Flow » is made of sad guitar arpeggios, a nice bluesy rock section with plaintive vocals, a mysterious, rather desperate atmosphere. "Paramechanical World » is a crying, lovely free ballad. Don't ask sophistication but just simplicity and feeling and you will definitely enjoy this album.
