2 stars I can understand all the hype about this album showed in the previous reviews. A premier electronic/synth band performing their debut without electronics whatsoever! They use more/less classic rock instrumentation with some additional strings, but they play in a not so "classic rock" way. Indeed, this is a proto experimental/avantguard style of noise music, later to be further worked out by Kraut-rockers, and why not say even punk- rockers at the end of the decade! This is not entirely new of course - the best part of the album for me, the guitar noisy section of "Journey through a Burning Brain", sounds like early VELVET UNDERGROUND anarchy noise. Anyway it is hard to give a mark. This album is surely and was at the time quite avanguard and innovative I guess, and even brave adventure, but on the other hand I had real problem to listen to it on several attempts: except for the mentioned song, the rest gave me always the urge to fall asleep. This is of course very personal feel, but I cannot recommend this album, in spite all of its "originality", to anyone but TD collectors only.
