4 stars This is a classic example of an artistic, moody and sincere psychedelic recording. Its front cover with two transparent images placed upon each other form a surrealistic and dreamlike atmosphere, which is strongly present on the music of the album. The highlights for me in this album are the nightmarish trip "Dem Guten, Schönen, Wahren", innovative "Luzifers Ghilom" and the shamanist title track "Phallus Dei", which is also captured on awesome film performance revealing the stoned conjurations of the solstice dawn. I recommend this classic record sincerely, but still with a small precaution. I think it is kind of a "hard-core" record, and example some of my friends liking Hawkwind found this a bit too disturbing music. That collective's Dave Anderson is plays also bass guitar on this enigmatic album.
