4 stars For Kosmische/Krautrock music fans

From all of Kinski's releases this is the one that stands out as a sore thumb and I mean that in the best way possible. With this release Kinski take a radical change in their sound. Their previous release, Airs Above Your Station, was a very guitar oriented album, but it looks like they got a bit tired with their sound and started to experiment with their own instruments and style to form a totally different beast ever seen in their discography.

In "Don't Climb up and Take The Holy Water" Kinski's krautrock influence is up front and in full power. From the intro of the first song to the end of the last one, this album will take you to a trip deep inside your consciousness and explore places you never thought they existed. The album is full of "surrealistic soundscapes" made with different effects and sounds of guitars, flute, synths and other instruments. They have a very experimental approach and it isn't really that "user friendly". Bands like early Popol Vuh, Ash Ra Temple, Tangerine Dream, Early Faust and other sound related bands can be seen as influence for this album. The meat of the album is clearly the 29 minute opus "The Misprint in the Gutenberg Print Shop" which is clearly the most adventurous song in the album. The song will set you on a trip like no other creating abstract images in your mind while the highly imaginative guitar effects guide you through the trip. If you let yourself go with the flow of the song you'll definitely enjoy it, but don't try to decompose every single note played or even try to analyze their sound because you'll end up bored out of your mind (keep that in mind when listening to this style of music). The sad thing is that after almost 30 minutes of pure surrealistic and imaginative playing, the rest of the album won't make your jaw drop like the previous song did. Having said that the songs aren't bad (they're actually all pretty good, really) and they keep the atmosphere and flow of the album going until the end, and what an atmosphere it is! The album never gets overtly loud while still being as imaginative and creative since the first seconds you pushed play in your CD player.

You can buy this album for the 29 minute acid trip song alone if you really want to and believe me that you'll get your money's worth. It's that good! I would gladly recommend this album for Krautrock fans, Electronic Prog fans, Space Rock fans and everything in between. Believe me that this will be one of the trippiest modern albums you'll ever hear and I couldn't ask for a better band than Kinski to do the job.

Don't miss this!

4 stars This album offers a really imaginative, surreal and vintage sounding jouyrney to the collective subconsiousness of this band. Some other releases by these fellows follow much more restrained and calculated straits, but this record is an exception from that line, painting strong impressionistic dreamy visions. Warmly recommended for anybody interested of challenging psychedelic music!

1 stars This may sound harsh but it's the real truth for myself:

Why in the hell and earth I insist in listen to Post-Rock?...

Most of the time there's not a single note appealing to me, there's no memorable melodies, there's no concrete work. Just a bunch of jams that never go anywhere. And most of this bands doesn't even have great instrumentists. This is exactly the case of the North American band Kinski in their 4th album Don't Climb On And Take The Holy Water (2004).

The album is basically made of one song 'The Misprint in The Gutenberg Print Shop' that fors for inbearabble 29 minutes and then you have another 4 songs that span between 2 and 5 minutes.

If you like Post-Rock... well, maybe it's something good. But if I were you, I would just forget it.
