2 stars After "Vive la Trance" that I consider to be the last of the real Amon Duul II 's sound, all the following albums released by the band will become weaker. Where are the freaky, psychedelic jams, where are the stoned voices and the ethnic percussions? The magic years belong to the past and this album is just boring, full of short common rock songs...It announces the decline of the band and the release of very poor albums such as "Only Human" or "Vortex". The band turns to something very soft, light, bringing modern synth, almost making commercial rock and old dated ballads. Hopefully the album contains a few memorable moments; the catchy and efficient rock tune wich opens the album or the song "Live in Jericho". Amon Duul not in top form!!!
