4 stars I absolutely adore this album.

When I think of folkmusic, I mostly think of England and to lesser extend Canada. But Germany has a lot of folkrockbands, especially in the seventies.

One of them (Hoelderlin) I already discovered. But Ougenweide is very nice aswell.

The lyrics are in german wich adds to the folky listening experience. The concept is a well known (at least for europeans) subject: Till Eulenspiegel (in dutch: Tijl Uilenspiegel). The music is medieval with some modern influences (like the folky side of Jethro Tull and Gentle Giant).

I can almost compare this band with the dutch Fungus. All in all, this is a very good progressive folkrock album, and I can recommend this album to anyone who loves the softer and sweeter side of seventies rock.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
