4 stars Terrible but funny sleeve art, but a great funky, fusion, proto-new wave album.

The band is way ahead of many progrockbands. They sound ready for the eighties, with their clean guitarsound, heavy bass/drum grooves and quirky songwriting and lyrics.

Kraan may be the best crossover band from the seventies/eighties that I am aware off. Less kraut/electronic than most german band, and more funky/fusion than most canterbury-bands.

Sometimes they sound like a happy, danceable version of Rush, especially on Vollgas Ahoi! The interplay between bass, drums and guitar is unrivalled here.

Highly recommended for people who love the instrumental side of Camel, Caravan, Hatfield, Hoelderlin etc.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
