4 stars Jeronimo a heavy psych/hard rock band from Germany and their second album selftitled from 1971 from their short career. This is an excellent heavy psych album with hard rock arrangements dominated by Michael Koch guitar and impressive bass chops from Gunnar Schäfer. I really like it alot, is very enjoyble with plenty of memorable passages, all pieces has balls delivering top notch performance. For that period early '70 Jeronimo had some prolific live performance touring with Deep Purple or Golden Earring, being one of the most well known german band from that period. This selftitled album offers good hard rock riffing, excellent bass lines like on Silence of the night, simply excellent bass here and good vocal passages, very much fiting in the music offered. Quite lesser known today even all 3 albums were released on CD, this one comes in a very nice brown colored digipack issued by Second battle label in late '90's. Solid sound, good compositions from this trio, nice ideas, what else an album to have in your collection, I like what I've heared here a lot and because of that 4 stars easy, for sure their best album from the 3 released before disbanding in late 1972. They had a brief reunion in 2001 but gone unnoticed by larger public. Recommended a nice slice of heavy psych meets hard rock.
