3 stars Blackwater Park is one of those (german) bands who didn't survive enough in prog music to make any ripples around them. They disbanded very soon after releasing only one album in 1972 named Dirt box, not very easy to find album, but fortunately the Cd reissue was made by Spalanx and Second battle fiew years ago. The music is very uptempo with catchy tunes and hard edged guitars, and from time to time some hammond is present, more background, the exception is the opening track, the music is more a hard rock with prog leanings here and there. Now the album beggins very strong with Mental Block, followed by another two great tracks Roundabout and One's Life - here the guitar player Michael Fechner did a great job, making Richy Blackmore to think twice if he is the only guitar virtuoso of those times. The rest of the tracks are good but not very exciting, only good to listen from time to time. I like the vocal parts made by Richard Routledge, is very sure about his possibilities in singing and did a realy great job on this album. All in all a pleasent album , no doubt, desearves 3 stars easely, but not an amazing one, like other albums from krautrock or heavy prog from that period. Similarities with Goliath, May Blitz or Walpurgis.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars It's hard for me not to like these early heavy blues flavoured albums with the prominant aggressive guitar and raw English vocals dominating the soundscapes.This would be the only album this German band would put out. It was recorded late in 1971 and released in 1972.

"Mental Block" is a mid paced tune with organ and guitar leading the way as our vocalist sings away. Love the guitar in this one. "Roundabout" is more uptempo and heavier. A good rocker. The lyrics are pretty bad though. "One's Life" reminds me of CREAM a little. I like this one especially the guitar. "Indian Summer" is a very bluesy 6 minute track. The guitar and drums lead the way early. The guitar is fairly heavy here. Vocals a minute in.

"Dirty Face" has piano in it and really doesn't do anything for me. "Rock Song" is the almost 9 minute epic. Great guitar and theatrical vocals. It turns psychedelic before 3 minutes as he speaks the vocals. Love the psychedelic guitar too before 4 1/2 minutes, then he lets it rip as he sets the soundscape on fire. Blistering solo ! "For Noone" is a cover of THE BEATLES "For No One" tune from the "Revolver" album. Very cool sounding translation of this excellent track.

Lots to like for me on this album but it doesn't rate anything more then 3 stars.

2 stars For sure, a band that lend its name to one of my top 10 albums had to be checked out. Especially seeing it listed under kraut rock had my hopes up even higher. As it turned out this rather sounds like a dated Thin Lizzy album then like anything kraut or Prog. But it's a fun ride still.

The songs are all fairly similar, swinging hard rock with lots of blues and organs, the mandatory boogie woogie tune and one extended track (Rock Song) that makes room for some psychedelic jamming. My favorite one would be Roundabout, its distinguishing qualities being a catchy guitar lead and a solid chugging rhythm.

A fairly unremarkable album with good tunes from pre-historic ages. Nothing too wild or exciting and certainly no kraut (if that would either motivate or hinder you to check it out). Nice cover though.

3 stars I'm afraid this album is mislabeled. This album is heavy rock proto metal in the vein of Trapeze and Black Sabbath. Not too progressive, not too Kraut, a one off almost classic. Catchy riffs combine with groovy, funky, heavy, chunky bass and percussion Vocals are uniformly strong, but the ... (read more)

3 stars Dirt Box is a pretty good album for the 1 shot band Blackwater Park (not to be confused with the Opeth album Blackwater Park) but in no way as I see it has any progressive characteristics.. It was one of the first albums I've heard initially when I started to get interested in 'progressive rock' ... (read more)
