4 stars So you are looking for one of those little treasures from the underground 70's German prog scene and don't know where to spend your hard earned money... look no further my friends "Blitzkreig" is your answer. This was WALLENSTEIN's debut album and ranks for me as one of their brigest and defining moments. Truely a wonderful album which surprisengly takes on a much more symphonic feel than a true krautrock. The line up was Jurgen Dollase - piano, electric piano, Mellotron, keyboard, Bill Barone - guitar, Jerry Berkers - bass, vocals Harald Groskopf - drums (who would later play with Klaus SCHULZE and ASHRA. "Blitzkrieg" is composed of 4 long tracks which are all given lots of space to develop and just brush on the side of space rock with lots of great guitar, keyboards and drumming. I have the Spalax CD transfer and the sound repro is very good and offers great clarity in the instrumentation. Not sure why this recording has been slagged by so many people and all I can say is that this music lover loves it.
