3 stars This is a live album made up of two side long tracks. The first "Breit" is the better of the two. Sax leads the way early until drums and organ become more prominant after 5 minutes. The tempo shifts before 11 minutes. The sax takes a break but returns a short time later. The drums and organ are all over this track before 21 minutes. It settles quickly after that though, and it ends in a dissonant mess.

On "Schaukel" it sounds like they started recording this song as it was already well under way. It settles quickly as sax comes in playing a relaxed melody with organ, drums and bass playing softly in the background. The sound gets louder before 3 minutes and builds. A calm after 5 minutes as the sax stops. It starts to get bluesy. Vocals come in after 11 minutes, they do get pretty vulgar and obscene in this straight up blues section.

Pretty good record, but for me not essential in the least. I'll stick with their "Electrip" studio album.
