4 stars Interestingly it's said a German folk rock act BR'SELMASCHINE would have got inspired especially by 60s American folk rock like Bob Dylan and so on, but as a matter of fact, they should have induced actual German psychedelic essence, exerted around them in those days, to themselves. Sounds like their debut eponymous album might simply be folksy seasoned with melodic or rhythmic dissected lesions here and there, but we can find carefully definite 'acid' texture all around, that can be touched via a Krautrock album titled 'Teilweise Kacke ... Aber Stereo' by Air or two albums by Furek'ben, a Danish tribal acid folk combo.

This tendency can be heard obviously in the two long tracks ('Schmetterling' and 'Nossa Boba') upon Side B. In the former one, repetitive oriental melodic phrases featuring ethnic percussion, sitar or flute drive the audience into another dimension of comfort. The latter track drenched in monotonous ambience shower has apparently different atmosphere from other ones. Consider both should have been clearly acid-folk-influenced and simultaneously no direct relationship to American folk rock. Wondering why they have been approved as a Prog Folk outfit, not as a Krautrock commune, but who cares? Another fascinating album released in 1971, one of big years in progressive rock scene.
