Prog Reviewer
2 stars Slapp Happy's first album is a pretty nondescript collection of rootsy psychedelia. Avant garde collaborations with Henry Cow were pretty far off at this point. This album closely resembles the more pastoral side of Amon Duul II combined with some of the Dead's or the Airplane's sloppy, jammy roots rock tunes. Not unpleasant, but the tunes just aren't particularly memorable and don't sound too experimental to these ears either, despite some attempts at studio sound manipulation. Dagmar Krause is more of an ensemble singer here, as Peter Blegvad contributes many lead vocals. An album for completists and Kraut Rock fiends only.
