4 stars This unknown german artist released this first album in 1971. Deuter is classified as "new age" cause that's what most of his records are. But his two first albums -D and AUM- have nothing to do with insipid relaxation music.

This is psychedelic experimental prog entirely done by the master himself, showing there its great skills as a musician, composer and producer.

The first long piece "Babylon" is crossed by psychedelic guitar, while bass offers a hypnotic and slow rhythmic pattern. Electronic effects and sound illustrations (baby's cry, distorted bell's ring) show the heavy LSD influence. Not surprisingly, the mood is very cerebral and requires to be in a similar state of consciousness than Deuter when composing it, or at least to be very open-minded, in order to fully enjoy it.

The others short pieces use water sound as a rhythmic element and much sitar, also rolling percussion showing there the world, natural side of his music. The last one "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" features cyclical repetitive synthe.

A strange and fascinating record, not to put between all ears.

4 stars Widely known as the first new age composer, Georg Deuter started out a s one of the most inventive musician, mixing eastern folk music with electronic sound collage and his first two albums are widely regarded as the equivalent of Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze's best works. This stunning debut is the work comes after many trip to Persia and further, to study the music and the philosophies. Those of you aware of Deuter's later New Age works (from 76 onwards), please be aware his first two albums are NOTHING AT ALL like that. And what stunning works they are even if it has not aged all that well. Most of his discography will be released on the legendary Munich-based Kuckuck label, and his records are probably the main reason for this label's long life.

The first side of the album is dominated by an almost 15-min Babylon soundscape that will have you completely charmed as it alternates between Indian classical music and some of the best synth sounds that TD or early Popol Vuh could've dreamed of. The stylus lifts off the wax after the second track, on a repetitive fuzzed out guitar sounds. The other cornerstone from D is the funny but aptly-titled Krishna Eating F&C. If you can resist lighting a doobie while listening to the album, you are probably not made for this type of music. Atlantis, however is much gloomier, just as you'd imagine from the mysterious tales of the lost continent > maybe my fave on the album. The album termites on a short wink to the label.

Surely, some progheads will not appreciate that much the (sometimes self-indulgent) hippy feeling pervading throughout the whole album, and I warn them, that this is VERY MUCH worth the investigation, but make sure you get an ear-load of it before making the investment.

5 stars Before turning to something more peaceful, soft and accessible with terribly boring "new age" efforts, Deuter made a name in the krautrock scene with the absolutely marvellous "D", essentially made of extended "tribal", "droning" and noisy improvisations. All tracks provide an ecstatic, glorious and sacred dimension that allows a comparison with the pioneering "Inside of the dream syndicate" and some archetypal psychedelic stuffs from Germany (Cluster at their beginning and Amon Duul at their most experimental moments). "Babylon" is an amazing, freaky composition with bizarre, strange, concrete "manipulated" sounds and fuzzy spacey guitar parts. "Der Turm/Fluchtpunkt" develops a ritual stoned theme always bringing to the fore some fuzzy guitars, tribal percussions and chaotic noises. With its large, cyclical organ sound and its patterns for sitar "Krishna Eating Fish and Chips" is a small interlude dedicated to spiritual music. The last track, "Atlantis" is the pick of Deuter's musical creativity: an intense, abstract dreamscape mixed with tribal, ritual percussions. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is a ferocious, dense level of transcendent sounds obtained by organic collages & loops; something nostalgic with ultra psychedelic effects. A progressive rock masterpiece and one the best effort produced during Krautrock's golden years.

4 stars This was an album I had searched for for some time before discovering that "Wayside Music" had it. Thankyou Steve ! DEUTER is a one man band from Germany featuring one Georg Deuter. He is definitely a pioneer in the Electronics genre as this first album "D" came out before Klause Schulze released anything, while TANGERINE DREAM released their second record "Alpha Centauri" this same year, and KRAFTWERK released "2" also this same year of 1971.

"Babylon" opens with dark sounds then we hear a baby cry briefly as the haunting soundscape continues. It changes after 3 1/2 minutes as we get a rhythm. Another change before 6 minutes as the melody stops and it turns spacey again. Acoustic guitar before 10 minutes then the tempo picks up. "Der Turm / Fluchtpunkt" opens with percussion and other sounds. It's more intense 2 minutes in. A good rhythm arrives before 3 1/2 minutes.

"Krishna Eating Fish And Chips" is a little annoying for my taste with all the sitar. I like the spacey intro though. "Atlantis" opens with percussion and spacey sounds. This is an interesting track. Water sounds late. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is very spacey as sounds pulse and wash.

This would be a great addition to your Electronic collection.

2 stars Far more lively and varied than the tranquil New Age material that would come to dominate his career, Deuter's debut album is a good but not fantastic contribution to the krautrock scene, with a bunch of chaotic musical ideas thrown in but nothing memorable enough to call to mind five minutes after listening to it. Probably the most interesting thing about it is that this is a one- man project, with multi-instrumentalist Deuter playing every instrument you hear - but that said, there's plenty of similar experiments of this sort out there, and this one is hardly the best. It's by no means terrible, but at the same time it isn't anything to get too excited about. It's spacey experimental krautrock full of odd noises. Even in 1971, that had become a cliche.

4 stars Multi-Instrumental German masterpiece from 1971, 20 Oct 2010 (Reactive 2010 Reissue) Deuter may not be a name familiar to many. His extensive catalogue consists largely of what most people would describe as `New Age' music. This is not the case here, on his debut work. Coming from the moth ... (read more)
