From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars I will start off by saying that my rating is based solely on this album, as I sadly have not yet managed to get ahold of any others and do not believe in downloading music. I have heard all of the Mp3 samples available on this website, but still cannot make a fair comparison to other albums. That being said, I say that I LOVE what I have heard! It took me a few spins to 'get' it, and found the last three tracks much more enjoyable off the get go. The title track was just so joyous and celebratory I found it utterly laughable and terrifying all at once but came to enjoy it in time. It was the hardest for me to enjoy. When I first got this record my favorite track was Ork Sun, because I just thought the hypnotic jungle vibe was just so cool, and the bass.. just left me speechless. After listening to Udu Wudu in it's entirety approx. 75 million times, I've come to the conclusion that my favorite tracks are De Futura, Troller Tanz, and Zombies. Being a bass player makes this album even more special to me, just because the way Mr. Top plays his bass like such a psychopath is just mind-blowing. Christian Vander also has to be THE most talented drummer I haver ever heard as well, and combined with Jannick, the make the deadliest duo in prog, IMHO. The only downside to this album is that the other instruments are not as involved, though the guitar and piano are present in parts, and Klaus is a delight to listen to, even though I have no idea what he's saying. That is why I'm looking forward to hearing other albums of theirs, especially Kobaia, for the long instrumental jazz groove, and M.D.K. for the praise it recieves. I just hope I can get past the multi-vocalizations! That being said, this Is one of my top 10 albums, and I listen to it every day. I don't know how it will stand up to their other efforts for me, but for now, I say a big 5/5.
