2 stars After the promising debut album released in 1982 Mad Puppet went through some line up changes and many problems. Their sophomore album, "Not Only Mad", wasn't released until 1991 with a line up featuring the veterans Manfred Kaufmann (keyboards), Manfred Schweigkofler (vocals), Christoph Senoner (guitar) along with the new members GŁnter Falser (drums, percussion) and Thomas Pichler (bass, clarinet). During the recording sessions the band was helped by two guest musicians as well, Hans Tutzer (sax) and Ray S. Rasp (vocals). This time Mas Puppet tried to shape a more conventional, mainstream sound and prog lovers could find highly disappointing their stylistic choice. On the album you can find some good ideas and some tracks, such as "Suicide Of Waterfall", "Gonzalo" or "You", are pleasant but sometimes the overall sound really seems closer to a kind of dark, synthetic pop than to progressive rock. Well, listening to this album you will set off on musical trip that will take you closer to Roxy Music's Avalon than to the court of the crimson king. All in all this work rarely strikes the right chords and it is "neither hot nor cold"... but maybe my criticism is too harsh!

Well, you can listen to the complete album and legally download it for free from the official website of the band, so judge by yourselves!
