4 stars Woah dude, smells like Cheech and Chong here.

Okey dokey, the're a band we don't often as a reference. This ain't a bad album at all. It has a heavy cloud of smoke over it, and how. The whole album has, what I call, a huge weed factor. Oh yeah, this is a good example of a floating, spacey, dreamy record to just lie down by the fire and let your mind fly wherever it wants. But get a load of the german singing! You like it or not. But the sang parts are too rare to ruin the feeling, au contraire, it feels like summer camp with a bunch of german hippies. But admit it, german is not the language to pick up a girl in a bikini.

This album don't really deserves to be a real classic due to the fact of the romantic side is taking the lead on the space side. This could've been one major trip without the sappy singing. But it's still a very, very good record to enjoy outside, just gazing at the fire or sharing booze with a raccoon.
