4 stars Early krautrock supergroup, but more obviously - just side project of members from some leading German psychedelic/kraut bands from early 70-s.

Main sound is based on Manuel Göttsching (Ash Ra Temple) excellent guitar and Klaus Schulze synth. Just two long instrumental compositions (on later CD re-release divided to 5 pieces). Essential LSD-influenced spacey sound - aerial, electronic jamming, with drumming and guitar sound, transferred through electronic devices.

Dreamy, hypnotic, meditative - but very light at the same time. Being in fact just jamming improve, all sound construction is connected by thin shining spacey lines. I wasn't caught by this music after first listening, but spin after spin I just was hypnotised.

Really unique atmosphere and fantastic work, essential German early spacey psychedelic release.

My rating - 4+!
