4 stars Usually, the krautrock artists are rather unmelodious and cold. On the other hand, Gaa here demonstrate a nonconformist tendency: we feel an overall sensitive music full of melancholy, passion and sadness. The visceral folk & hard rock styles involved should remind the listener pathetic bands of the Woodstock era. It lies between the early Scorpions, Shaa Khan and Jimi Hendrix with some early psychedelic Pink Floyd elements. The difference here is that the German lead & backing vocals give a much colder character to the music. Unlike typical krautrock bands, Gaa are more down to earth, avoiding to produce experimental echoed drums & percussions and alienating vocal patterns, like Can or Faust. Definitely, "Auf Der Bahn Zum Uranus" is a catchy album, quite pleasant to listen. If one considers it a ktrautrock album, then it is my favorite one so far! I find more hard rock, folk, psychedelic and bluesy elements than krautrock ones: the krautrock element may occur because of the strong German lead & backing vocals. As keyboards, there are mainly floating psychedelic organ and piano. The bass is quite bottom, and the rhythm is rather slow.
