4 stars "Paradieswärts Düül" is the first Amon düül incarnation. Although the band was still a little amateurish, this record is probably the most accomplished, and probably the one which features the cleaner production, among Amon düül (I) records. The music can be described as a cross of US psyche and early prog. The first long piece is a jam session in a hippie mood, with flute and percussions. There's a repetitive melodic pattern and some singing. Some may find the vocals painful, but it's bearable. The piece is quite repetitive and features some excellent guitar. The second one is the best: purely instrumental and featuring mind blowing wha-wha guitar. This piece is more progressive and acid. US psyche influence is obvious throughout the album. The last tune is more simple, but good as well. This album is very interesting because it shows German prog genesis: half progressive, half psychedelic with a strong west coast flavour for the experimental side.
