4 stars It isn't often you'll see a "Best Of" album from a Progressive Rock band, especially not when it comes to Kraut Rock (actually a genre of it's own, but could easily be described as early German Progressive Rock). AMON DÜÜL II was one of the most influential bands within this movement, and they still have influence on many of today's bands. On this "Best Of" you can hear some of their best songs from 1969-1999. I have only heard a few of AMON DÜÜL II's albums, so this album came as a positive surprise for me. Once upon a time there was this band formed in 1968 called AMON DÜÜL. They eventually split in two separate bands: AMON DÜÜL who took on a political approach in their music, and AMON DÜÜL II who concentrated on the music. The members have been changed in-between these two bands throughout the years, but AMON DÜÜL II has always been the most interesting of the two bands. The music is an experimental mix between space rock, jazz-rock, progressive rock and psychedelic rock, and there are some similarities here and there to HAWKWIND, PINK FLOYD and YES. If you're unfamiliar with AMON DÜÜL II you'll probably have to listen to their music quite a lot to get into it, but the fact is that they've had a big influence on many of the band in the progressive rock genre today. So if you're interested in hearing music from one of the "original" progressive rock bands, this is a great album to start with.
