2 stars This album is hard to rate. You won't find any other psychedelic proto-gothic albums dating from '69, but the recording sound leaves much to be desired - which is no wonder for two days of recording time. The songs on side one alle nice psyched-out tunes. The originality is apparent and the band seems motivated to shake things up. The 'epic' on the second side for me is ruined by many pitch anomalies and moments where the music just becomes indistinct. Amon Duul II would remain original and slightly amateurish throughout their career, but with this record I just can't get myself to listen past its flaws. To me, 'Wolf City' is by far their best sounding record.
