PROG REVIEWER
4 stars 110% completely oil saturated mind blowing Kraut-Rock from these underground heavy weights from 1972. Produced by the legendary Dieter Dierks, ORANGE PEEL offers everything an album from this genre should... crazy frenzied guitar work , heavy organ whisps and tons of nice heavy keys, mind altering music and instrumentation, with great drum and bass interplay all creating a true heavy psychedelic monster and IMHO one of the best albums from the 70's Germany. Wow this album truly is one hell of a trip man... 4 long exploratory tracks with tons of vintage keyboards creating a wonderful wall of sound which has been carefully re-mastered on CD by the folks at CMP Records. Krautrock fans need to not look any further nor find a more mind blowing album... not Krautrock collection can be without this album !

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars ORANGE PEEL from Germany broke up after this album was released. Curt Cress the drummer was only 17 years old when this was recorded, and after the band broke up he went on to play for many bands including PASSPORT and TRIUMVIRAT. But it's the organ play that stands out most on this record.

The first song "You Can't Change Them All" is a killer tune, a monster that is the best song on this release by a mile. The drums, organ and guitar playing are amazing and the vocals are passionate to say the least. This song is 18 minutes long and it seems like they're just jamming much of the time. Killer stuff ! There are some real tripping, infectious melodies in this tune, a jam-fest of fantastic lead guitar and organ play, as the drums continually and hypnotically pound away. "Faces That I Used To Know" is very much organ and guitar led although the focus is on the vocals. Lots of percussion here too.

"Tobacco Road" is a cover song that is totally blues infested.The organ and guitar melodies are again fantastic ! The final song "We Still Try To Change" is dominated with the organ play of Ralph Wilrheiss, and there are some really good guitar melodies scattered throughout this song. The melody is especially good 5 minutes in with the guitar,drums and organ just going at it. Things get a little experimental after 9 minutes.

I think fans of Krautrock will drool over this recording, while prog fans in general will enjoy this recording as well, just not nearly as much.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Orange Peel was one of the first Krautrock albums, standing at the edge between late 60s' psychedelia with saturated guitars, raw vocals and long organ solos, and space rock pieces in the style of the first albums by Amon Düül II, ELoy, Faust and Grobschnitt. The music played here was quite innovative for its time and could be described as "heavy organ psychedelic rock". The record contains two long epic tracks and two shorter songs, more blues-rock oriented.

The overture track, You Can't Change Them All, starts with a smooth beautiful sounding very symphonic to increase progressively on intensity and psychedelism. The song contains just a few minutes of vocals at the beginning and at the end, but the rest is instrumental. It goes faster and faster with powerful guitar and organ solos alternating accompanied by bongos. Some parts remind me a little of Santana's III. The tune has many changes and is very experimental by moments. Mindblowing ! The longest and best track of the album ! The next tracks, Faces That I Used To Know and Tobacco Road are less spacey but however pretty enjoyable with sometimes a Jimi Hendrix's feel. The disc ends with We Still Try to Change, the other masterpiece of Orange Peel. With its implacable bass introduction and its powerful ogan riff, you are immediately transported to another planet. As for the first long piece, the tune features mainly instrumental passages very spacey and experimental. Such moments announces future Krautrock sounds.

Formed during a transitionnal period, the short-lived band Orange Peel released an astonishing unique album, in par with great german progressive acts of their time. Highly recommended to krautrock and early space rock fans !

4 stars There's no need to change them all ...

Besides a single released in 1969 this is the only full album of ORANGE PEEL, recorded at the famous Dierks studios near Cologne. The band split after they produced this effort and the musicians went their own ways. Curt Cress became the most famous later on as a prolific drummer with PASSPORT, ATLANTIS and TRIUMVIRAT. The music is a special mix of Blues, Hard Rock, Psychedelic and Jazz Rock which can be titled as Krautrock by all means and is ahead of the times.

The best demonstration for this specification is the fantastic jam pearl You Can't Change Them All. Heavy and Jazz Rock parts are taking turns provided by some psychedelic moments, a hammond organ in full blast and wonderful various guitar playing. Bischof acts as a Hard Rock singer and also plays bongo. Cress' drumming is perfect like being a longtime profi. What an excellent song!

ORANGE PEEL influenced by RARE EARTH? I'm not sure, but Faces That I Used To Know surprises because it sounds as it is produced by this american band (which I really like). Unfortunately the song is faded out - probably otherwise it has not been fitted to the LP format. Tobacco Road, also covered by RARE EARTH in 1969, is a reminiscence to their Blues roots but hard to recognize compared to the ERIC BURDON version. The album ends with We Still Try To Change, another fantastic rocking song remembering at DEEP PURPLE a little bit but with a furious psychedelic finale.

Recommended to collectors of excellent Krautrock albums - 4.5 stars.

4 stars 4,5 stars Orange Peel were among the pioneers of the Krautrock movement in the 70's. They recorded only one album, but I think that it was really ahead of its time, at least compared to what other german rock bands were writing during that era. Recorded in 1969 and released in 1970, the self- ... (read more)

3 stars An alright krautrock record. Fairly decent but I wouldn't recommend it. Organ-driven/dominated rock that manages to be progressive here and there. Slightly heavy. The sidelong "You Can't Change Them All" contains some good and some mediocre and aimless jamming. Throughout the jamming, which is a ... (read more)

5 stars For some reason, I recently listen to a lot of german bands. Not just krautrock. And this one I'm enjoying very, very much. Only 4 songs here. First track is a great suite based on organ and guitar playing. It's very dark like the rest of the album. Second (Faces That I Used To Know), is a track ... (read more)
