3 stars The old legend Coupla Prog originally published this album in 1972. "Death Is A Great Gambler" is a refined, ecclectic krautrock album dominated by Hammond organs, solid guitar rythms and frantic technical drums. With a bands like Improved Sound Limited, Coupla Prog represents a more accessible and less obscure side of krautrock. Their music alternates conventional, melodic & energic psych pop songs (closed to the 60's British psych scene) with "lysergic" epics under an hippie's attitude and musical aesthetism. My favourite composition is the moody and mysterious "Tochter Im Delirium - Daughter's Delirium" : an "acid" rock trip with haunted, furious Hammond organs, obsessional & menacing guitar chords, bizarre sound manipulations and bass wha wha effects. Not essential but highly recommended for those who are into the krautrock / space-psychedelic rock subgenres. An excellent listening with good weed.
