What a deception! "Rockpommel's Land" is one of the most overrated albums of the progressive rock world. GROBSCHNITT goes truly symphonic and takes notes on YES for this one. For sure, the disc has good passages on it, like the catchy "Ernie's Reise" and the final section of the twenty minutes title suites, but these are not sufficient to make a good record. Most of the music here is difficult to enter into and unfortunately lacks direction.

In fact, "Tontillon" is the best song here. It is nearly the first time that a bonus track is actually better than the songs from the album! From its magic opening with smooth bells, the tune evolves and grows in intensity more and more to a beautiful melancholic melody. An important but uneven release from GROBSCHNITT.

Modrigue | 2/5 |
