4 stars What a mesmerizing album! What a discovery! It's like the gold mine of these golden 60's/70's years is never ending and that vintage records like this seem to pop out from nowhere...especially the year 1971. This album is simply a jazzrock monument! But it's actually considered as a Krautrock band and indeed their music is a brillant synthesis of both genres. The influences and comparisons evoke at times SOFT MACHINE, EMBRYO for the world influences. Long freeform jams with tons of joyous flute and of course, great psychedelic guitar solos, reminding me of at times a lighter form of fusion la HERBIE MANN. We can notice the participation of belgian guitarist Philip Catherine at his debuts. The record is well recorded and well reissued by Garden of delights (thanks a lot!). A must have for any serious jazzrock and/or krautrock fan!
