2 stars I wanted to see how AMON DÜÜL II sounded later on, so I picked this album. To me, I think the band really lost it by this point. Here the band is trying for more conventional symphonic prog. I don't have any problem with that. This is 1976, after all, you don't get albums like ASH RA TEMPEL's "Seven Up", CAN's "Tago Mago", or AMON DÜÜL's "Tanz der Lemminge", for that matter, being released in 1976. Bands that survived this long turned either to electronic music (TANGERINE DREAM, for that matter ASH RA TEMPEL as they became ASHRA) or symphonic prog (ELOY, BIRTH CONTROL).

Unfortunately on "Pyrogany X", AMON DÜÜL II sounds totally clueless playing conventional symphonic prog. Most of the compositions are non-memorable, in fact a title like "Sally the Seducer" is more memorable for its title than the music. Then you have "Telly Vision", with lyrics referring to Ronald McDonald. For me, it's much better to stick with their early albums, like "Phallas Dei", "Yeti", "Tanz der Lemminge", perhaps "Carnival in Babylon" and "Wolf City" than this later offering.

2 stars Again losing their way, with only Weinzierl, Karrer and Leopold offering links to the classic band. The group is filled out by Klaus Ebert (formerly of psych-pop act the Petards) and Stefan Zauner (later leader of teenypop act Münchener Freiheit). It's bad enough that Ebert and Zauner, who should have been relegated to sidemen, contributed material to the album, but their tedious and inane pop music actually dominated the songwriting.

High points include the group composition "Flower Of The Orient", with its lovely Near East textures, and Weinzierl's instrumental "Crystal Hexagram". Karrer's lone contribution, the lengthy "The Only Thing", sounds more like Southern rock than Krautrock, but it's a lot more vital than Ebert and Zauner's dopey bubblegum.

3 stars Amon Duul II's 'Tenth' album. This one is not to be compared to ANY of their albums prior to this. When I listen to this LP, I actually enjoy it quite a bit. The band is down to a 5 piece here - only original members being guitar/sax/violin player Chris Karrer, guitarist John Weinzierl and Drummer Pete Leopold, with new members Stefan Zauner (Keyboards/vocals) and Klaus Ebert (Bass/vocals) providing a more stream-lined approach to composition and the tendency to head towards commercial territory. The opening tune, 'Flower Of The Orient' holds promise, really a pot-pouri of great sounds, lively colours and Eastern flavours, but by the time it actually 'takes off ', it fades with some wonderful violin lines. 'Merlin' rocks with little magic actually, but contains some Mellotron choirs (which is a positive), 'Crystal Hexagram' (nice title !) is a melodic instrumental with an excellent keyboard intro and a laid-back rhythm - not spectacular, but interesting. 'Lost In Space' starts out 'poppy', but ends quite spacey, with a very competent mini-moog solo.

'Sally The Seducer' and 'Telly Vision' are both short songs, incorporating great keys, amusing (some may say 'silly', but I like 'em) lyrics and odd time sigs. Karrer's 7 and a half minute 'The Only Thing' is a guitar-oriented track which chuggs along nicely, but not much in the way of technical instrumental display, and 'Capuccino' is a shorter pop-song. This direction the band has chosen, a mainstream prog sound with an inclination toward 'Pop', may not be to everyone's taste, but the album holds together fairly well, something of an 'excellent addition to your collection if you're a fan/collector'. 3.5 stars.

3 stars Amon Duul II's worst album is still a good album. Although ADII evolved quite a bit throughout their lifespan, I would not say that they ever progressed. They simply changed from psychadelic krautrock to accessible pop/rock with experimental and psychadelic tendencies...and the evolution is evid ... (read more)
