4 stars First album from this major german band, released in 1972. The eastern influence has been greatly exaggerated by critics. It actually consists of few sound effects between the pieces, evocative of the East. This influence was due to some touring the band did in the East, especially Egypt, before recording Malesh. But it's enough to create this delightful oriental atmosphere.

The music can be better described as highly efficient spacerock, featuring a square and powerful rhythmic section, experimental synthe and acid guitar reminiscent of US psyche.

"Malesh" is the most accomplished tune, with its majestic progression. "Rücksturz", the last one, features an highly emotional and intense guitar solo with a beautiful melody.

Sound quality is excellent and if you're into CD, better choose the old Spalax version than the "Garden of delights" one which features thinner low and less dynamic.

A big classic of german prog.
