4 stars Arguably the finest Hoelderlin recording. Hoelderlin were often compared to Grobschnitt but had a much more serious approach to their music and on Clown & Clouds this is more than evident.

It is a wondwerful blending of folk,rock and a pinch of jazz to to put the icing on the cake on this masterpiece. Not a bad track here folks with the best saved for last. Phasing, dominated by a violin buildup is on of the most ingenious crescendos in progressive rock and just makes the listener want to listen to the album again for there are discoveries to be made which might have been missed on the first listen of this treasure chest of progressive rock. Five stars no problem.
