Review by hdfisch
3 stars SAMETI, that's another band project from my hometown and yet another one related to EMBRYO but more strongly to AMON DÜÜL II which is strikingly proofed by the style presented on their debut album here. The material offered here can be described roughly as highly drug-inspired free-form and hard-edged space rock that is KRAUTrock in its real literal sense if choosing its meaning of weed. First side of the original vinyl contains four quite well-done loosely-structured tracks with great dual guitar and some occasional sax solos. The only point I can grumble about is Shrat's vocal performance that I found already annoying on A.D. II's stuff, quite awful I've to say but that's probably a matter of taste. Side two is occupied by the 22 minute improvised piece "Anotherwaytosee" which is really remarkable and wouldn't have been out of place on "Tanz der Lemminge" for example. I wouldn't call this band necessarily an excellent addition to any Prog collection but anyway I'd recommend it to all Krautrock afficiados and in particular fans of Amon Düül.
