3 stars Wallenstein emerged under the collective category of krautrock. However their "progressive" sound risen outside of this subgenre, perpetuating the traditionalism of ELP and others symphonic prog bands (from England and Italy as well). Next to "Blitzkrieg" and "Cosmic century", "Mother universe" constitutes the best part of their career. In varying degrees, this album consists of usual dynamic symphonic prog rock pieces with many melodic, fast and technical keyboards sessions, completed by powerful guitar lines and gorgeous vocal parts. The instrumental interludes are the most interesting side of this work. It can be found intriguing by listeners of symphonic prog rock. Not really innovative, sometimes academic but well composed and loyal, this record is a good purchase for those who want to be connected with German prog rock sounding like British ones.
