2 stars Sophmore release by this obscure german band from the mid 70´s. Sunburst shows the group leaning more towards jazz rock/fusion (plus some eletronic bits) than to symphonic prog. This time the trio is helped by a guest bass player and generally their compositions are a little more structured and focused than on their debut. And still they are not exactly very good. Again it´s obvious that they are excellent musicians (specially Schickés. brilliant drumming and Fühts nice keyboard work). It is a pity that those guys could not come up with a better repertoire of original songs.

After repeated listenings the result is the same: track after track you expect something to happen and it doesn´t. Not exactly boring, but neither exciting. Good production and absolute no highlights. It is easy to understand why they were never big. Even for 1977 there was plenty of better things to hear, prog or otherwise. A typical case fo good musicians lacking some strong songwriting skills and an identity. This CD is surely for collectors and hardcore fans.
