2 stars OK, numerous attempts to get into this work have fallen on deaf ears or numb minds. I am a huge fan of music from Germany especially the 70's and believe they were pioneers on creating and developing so much new sounds, just ref TD, Can, ART, Amon Duul II to name a few. What pioneers this country proved, Krautrock made it's mark like a tatoo on your musical soul.

Yet, Illusions On a Double Dimple is just good music, but nothing more. What is apparent is their leanings too much in the ELP department, granted this was 1973 so there was not much time to be influenced too much, but the clone sound seems too self evident. " Mister Ten Percent" probably the better of two halves. Like I say there are moments of grandeur and then just plain bombastic ELP overkill. I can see what symphonic fans get out of this album, but that is just too confined a view for me and would prefer to base the review on a general assessment. For collectors of symphonic only.
