4 stars I love how this album sounds. This is trippy and laid back psychedelic music with German vocals, guitar and organ standing out. The band named themselves after the goddess of earth (that's her on the album cover) while the album's title means "On the road to Uranus" (haha).

"Uranus" opens with acoustic guitar and bass that slowly rise up as spoken words and synths join in. It's building. Drums and electric guitar after 2 minutes. Nice. Vocals follow. It then settles with floating organ and vocal melodies. Spoken words 7 minutes in and then it kicks back in before 8 minutes and the guitar sounds great. "Bossa Rustical" is an instrumental that opens with strummed acoustic guitar before electric guitar, congas and drums join in. Back to acoustic guitar only followed by a bass solo before we get a full sound. "Tanz Mit Dem Mond" opens with acoustic guitar then piano and bass take over as reserved vocals join in. It kicks in around 3 minutes with prominant guitar. It settles again as themes are repeated. Check out the guitar to end it.

"Mutter Erde" has a catchy uptempo intro with vocals, it settles before 1 1/2 minutes. Contrasts continue. Check out the organ runs 3 1/2 minutes in. Vocal melodies before 6 minutes include some yelling. Lots of fun. "Welt Im Dunkel" settles with organ quickly then drums and guitar join in. It's still fairly laid back as vocal melodies join in then vocals. The tasteful guitar sounds great after 4 1/2 minutes, more vocal melodies follow. It kicks into gear after 6 minutes to end it. "Gaa" has a good drum / guitar intro before the main melody arrives around a minute. Some flute in this song. Vocal melodies join in as well. This is great ! Guitar 3 1/2 minutes in before it settles with bass. Acoustic guitar and a spacey soundscape take over including flute. It's building again. The drumming and guitar are impressive.

Nothing revolutionary here but this is my kind of music. They call it Krautrock and it's outstanding !
