SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions
4 stars Where is the Psychedelic Man?

This band is fascinating not only because they are on the top for more than 35 years. Studio and live appearances are always differing a lot with KRAAN. If you own the special edition of 'Psychedelic Man' you can hear both facets of the band and therefore it gives a very good overview.

First of all the CD is consisting of 11 new tracks - not very psychedelic as the album title is suggesting. Rather a combination of dynamic fusion and more relaxed, jazzy parts, even sometimes in a chillout mood. Vocals are much better than on other releases. Some songs are if they were dedicated to a wellknown musician resp. band. The guitars are dominating like on every other KRAAN release. Peters Wolbrandt's playing remembers much at the 70s. Together with drummer Jan Fride Helmut Hattler cares for the necessary drive.

Come back sounds like they are hoping to climb into the charts. The song has a simple rhythm and a compatible refrain. Not bad but polished to mainstream (better than any other No.1 hit anyhow). With Silver Buildings Wollbrandt mutates to Randy California and dominates this excellent song. Even the vocals are similar to SPIRIT. Dakkar against is with impressive guitar work but the following Miracle Days somewhat disappoints. Not more than a nice try to play a new BEATLES song.

Title track Psychedelic Man is another dynamic highlight which really contains some psychedelic elements and crazy vocals. A very interesting trippy song indeed with simple but effectual keyboard patterns. Inner Circle with a second bass line and Feierabend are NuJazz/Lounge. I like them very much - relaxed and smooth. Disbanned Shake is a heavy break because this track is a homage to JIMI HENDRIX whereas Colourcave gets very near to the slowtempo part of Nam Nam.

DVD offers 6 songs performed at Finkenbach Festival/Germany in 2005. The band is very concentrated and it's really amazing to watch Hattler's bass playing. Not to compare with the concerts of the first half of the 70s (you have to listen to 'Kraan Live') without keyboards. But nevertheless just an excellent one - Jazz Rock at its best! I always was a fan of KRAAN as a live band and this DVD confirms my expectations. They play the songs with great power, an enormous groove and Ingo Bischof finally is very present and cares for a fusion feeling.

Yaqui Yagua and Vollgas Ahoi have been first released 1977 on 'Wiederhören' when Johannes 'Alto' Pappert had already said goodbye. Both are funky groovy including highspeed jams - fabulous. Kraan Arabia is a live standard of the band. Before it starts Helmut Hattler is remembering at the 70s when many german bands worked together in a special community. Afterwards he introduces Mani Neumeier - known as the drummer of GURU GURU and one of the organizers of the Finkenbach Festival - who has a percussion guest appearance. Bischof substitutes Johannes Pappert's alto sax excellently.

Hallo Ja Ja, I Don't Know starts with the wellknown guitar intro and Borgward convinces with a long and very jazzy keyboard solo. At the end we have a stunning 18 minute Nam Nam at this time with a special fusion touch mainly caused by Bischof. So you might recognize CHICK COREA's RETURN TO FOREVER for a while near the end which then suddenly is replaced by a very short Sarah's Ritt durch den Schwarzwald. Helmut Hattler's trademark is the use of his bass as a solo instrument which he always demonstrates during live gigs.

As for a summary this is an excellent addition if you order the special version. 3 stars for the CD because it is consisting of very good but also some mediocre songs and 5 stars for the DVD offering an excellent live performance to your ears and eyes.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars I'm a big fan of this band but I must admit that apart from this 2007 release I only own their first five albums the last of which was released in 1977. So yes we're talking 30 years between that disc and this one. They have been putting out records in between, I just felt that "Wiederhoren" from 1977 was not nearly as good as the first four albums so I didn't bother to check out their later recordings. So imagine my surprise when I listened to this record for the first time. I think i'll remember that for a long time actually as I sat there with my mouth hanging open. By the way the album cover is too cute.The music is of course different from the early years.There is no sax here and this is much more modern sounding, but it's also very laid back and dreamy much of the time. I just love how this record sounds really.

"Come Back" opens with vocals, bass and drums and is relaxed. We do get outbursts at times and I like the synths 1 1/2 minutes in. "Silver Buildings" is one of my favourite for sure.The first time I heard it it was like a revelation. It's so uplifting and I really like the guitar tone. If I had an I- Pod this would be on it (haha). I can't say enough or explain how it makes me feel. "Dakkar" kicks in quickly and check out Hattler on bass.The man is a genius people. I like when it picks up with keyboards. A very cool sounding instrumental. "Miracle Days" is a lazy, feel good tune with vocals.

"Luft Und Liebe" is brighter and more upbeat, at least to start. It settles in as contrasts continue. Some good sounding guitar and bass here. "Psychedelic Man" opens with some excellent bass and drumming. Vocals join in. A calm late to end it. "Inner Circle" is a top three no doubt. It's dreamy and oh so amazing.The guitar before 3 minutes fits right in. "Disbanned Shake" is surprisingly heavy with distorted guitar as drums pound. It picks up as vocals join in. "Colourcave" has this beat as the guitar comes in beautifully. Another great sounding instrumental. "Alles Gute" is uptempo with some killer bass. "Feierabend" is another feel good, relaxed tune. Synths after 1 1/2 minutes.

I know this isn't for everybody but I just want to thank the band for still making incredible music after all these years.There's a bonus DVD as well of a 2005 concert that will blow your circuits. I'm glad I got this when it first came out because it's a pricey recording right now.

3 stars As far as I know, Kraan didn't make anything valuable since Wiederhoren, although their music in the eighties can be acceptable, if no progressive dimension is expected, especially if one keeps in mind the general trend in that time.
