3 stars A pretty good debut from the GROBSCHNITT drummer. This is nothing like the music that GROBSCHNITT plays, in fact it's more in the Electronic-Prog genre with that Krautrock vibe. I must admit that EROC to me is more about his recording studio "The Ranch" and his work in that area than as a musician. I guess that's from mentioning him often in many of my reviews over the years in that capacity.

"Kleine Eva" is the longest track at almost 12 minutes and probably my least favourite too. Spacey sounds pulse as keys join in around 2 minutes then this sound which you would think was a child's keyboard or something also joins in. Loud synths before 5 1/2 minutes that are annoying to say the least. "Des Zauberers Traum" opens with sounds that hum and other electronics.The synths before 2 minutes get annoying after 2 1/2 minutes.

"Toni Moff Mollo" is less than a minute of two people talking in German. "Die Musik Vom Olberg" is somewhat catchy with a beat and synths. Glass breaks to end it and the sound of someone running away. "Norderland" is my favourite and the first song I actually like. Organ floats in with spacey winds. A melody kicks in with guitar. Nice. An interesting track. "Horrorgoll" is pretty much voices and sounds that echo throughout. Not a fan. "Sternchen" is better with guitar melodies. A dead calm before 2 minutes then it builds again.

This is good but when you consider it's 1975 he's a little late to the Krautrock party. I suppose that wouldn't be an issue if I really liked it though.
