4 stars How can, after 37 years, this still remain so fresh and wonderful? BECAUSE!!! It's made of the stuff real music is made of: PASSION & PURPOSE.

This album really is a wonderful tribute to the early era of the musical spectrum of the times. Fabulous cover, the music fits the imagery. Basic, to progressive motifs explored in a cohesive VERY German musical canvas. The guitar tone is awesome. The bass and drums are both solid and yet expressive. The singing, although quite unique for us (American's) at this time of this early release, is just right for the passion and power of the music.

When revisiting this album I am reminded of how unbelievably creative that era of 64-77 really was. Not that there hasn't been great music since or before that time, but man did the musical gods smile upon us during that era. The forward thinking expressed here on Grobshcnitt's first album is a clearing path for their many years of exploration.

This is a great place to start your own trip of Krautrock, or progressive music of any taste for that matter. Get this CD while you still can!

As always, thanks to progarchives.com for having this great forum for us seekers of that something we just can't quite find - and really don't want to, as the search is the real payoff.
