Prog Reviewer
3 stars As for the composition of original atmosphere and the melody of Kraan, originality might be really high. And, it is partial of the technology of their performances. Or, a consistent flow and arrangement always change for the case to compose the tune. However, the fact that offers the listener the impression that the genre is not specified too much for the performance that they do and the produced tune might always be active as interesting existence.

It might be understood to absorb various elements in the music character and to challenge after they debut in 1972 if the activity of their music is chased. Jazz. Or, the element etc. of Funk and a little trip music are consistent as their styles.

The drum player has alternated from Jan Fride to Udo Dahmen in this album. Jan Fride is active as an important member who still supports the rhythm of Kraan. The part of the performance that was able to be listened by "Wiederhoren" might be refined further. Anacatesthesia of "Gayu Gaya". Or, it is partial of a mysterious melody and Groove of "You're Right" often performed still live. There might be a lot of listeners of these elements who take it up as an item of Prog Rock and Jazz Rock in a large meaning, too.

It might be an album that never stands out too much in the history of the music of Kraan. However, their styles might be consistent in time when the flow that they face in the 80's in the 70's is difficult. The part where the tune is good is drawn out and it merges in the band as a member of the band in this work though keyboard player's Ingo Bischof has joined the band on the way. The entire atmosphere of the album might be also consistent. As for it, it also means the style to their music at the same time. Atmosphere and the element of "Buy Buy" and "Flyday" might be the performances really made only Kraan. You might do not have to stand out so much. However, such a band might not exist so much in the world either.
