4 stars I totally love the early krautrock style, with spacy.psychedelic guitar jam's that builds up from slow ambient waves of electronics and finally erupts in more rocking extended jamming. And this debut from Agitation Free fits right in with the best of what Krautrock has to offer.

Malesch is not as heavy and trippy as Amon Düül II, or Guru Guru, and it is not as predominantly synthetic as Tangerine Dream became, but sits safely somewhere in the middle of what was going on in Germany in the early 70's. Influences from mentioned bands and also Pink Floyd, and other early psychedelic bands are incorporated in their unique soundscapes.

Favourite songs are Khan El Khalili, You Play For Us Today, The titl track Malesch and the closing Rücksturz, but really no bad songs on this album, but like most music you must like it to enjoy it.

Very good debut from one of the sound-defining bands of early krautrock.
