3 stars In this intricate album the Swiss of Krokodil present an original blend of massive bluesy folk compositions and weird experimentations. It's certain that this band has a krautrock sensibility, mainly due to their primitive improvisations, a taste for sound experimentations and freak out instrumentals. The difference with krautrock bands is that their musical influences are not cryptic and keep a feeling for the late 60s pop music. "Lady of attraction" is an emotive psychedelic piece with evident folk arguments thanks to the acoustic guitar and flute sequences. The vocals have something plaintive. The track includes some brilliant spacey rock arrangements thanks to the Mellotron. The bluesy tone is given by the Harmonica parts. "With Little Miss Trimmings" is an accessible folk composition dominated by guitars and simplistic melodies. "Oddissey in Om" is a pure krautrock hymn, a totally stoned composition starting with eastern psych harmonies thanks to percussions and sitar. It carries on a stumbling cosmic krautrock with perpetual jams. "Green Fly" is a nice psychedelic pop composition with a discreet garage rock flavour of the sixties. "Looking At Time" is an other propulsive, dynamic bluesy rock attack with lot of Harmonica. Well thought with lot of fantasies, weird & cool things this album can be an interesting recommendation for those who like the most "indulgent" side of progressive rock.
