4 stars This is more laidback than the debut as flute and gentle guitar lead the way. The lyrics are very cosmic, which fits the music perfectly. Tough to choose between their first two records, both are excellent.

"Dedicated To Werner Braun" is an outstanding song that is quite spacey for the first 2 minutes before a very ASHRA-like flavour takes over. His guitar playing here really reminds me of Gottsching. "Message" is very spacey with flute. It settles down 3 minutes in as flute and drums dominate the soundscape. It changes a minute later with some brief vocals then the tempo picks up. Vocals are back after 5 minutes and some nice guitar 6 minutes in. "Expeditions" is another outstanding track. It opens with acoustic guitar, drums, flute and bass in this mellow soundscape. The guitar sounds amazing 1 1/2 minutes in as vocals join in at 2 minutes. The flute is beautiful. Simply a gorgeous song. Tasteful electric guitar after 3 minutes.

"Mythalgia" is a short flute led track with mellotron 1 1/2 minutes in. It blends into "Dreamlab" with the flute continuing to lead the way. Percussion then drums in this great sounding tune. Bass and synths come in as the tempo picks up. The melody stops after 3 minutes as it turns quite spacey, then an acoustic guitar melody arrives as spacey sounds continue. Flute is back after 7 minutes. "Eternity" is led by the flute and drums early before bass then vocals arrive 1 1/2 minutes in. Love the vocals on this one. The temp picks up after 3 minutes as synths and guitar join in. Flute is back leading the way 5 1/2 minutes in. The song stops 6 1/2 minutes in then mellotron waves roll in to end it.

A must have for fans of Krautrock and spacey music.
