Prog Reviewer
3 stars A badly dated 'Magma' type album from 1971 which I don't think will hold much interest to anyone but the hardest 'Magma' fans. It's a dodgy recording from the outset, with poorly recorded instruments played in a formulaic 70's jazz manner.

Clearly below par in the Zeuhl scheme of things, it does still hold a certain form of charm in its simple direction - sounding more 60's than the era in which it was released. A naff album which is strangely enjoyable simply because it's quite upbeat with lots of horns blowing about willy-nilly. Lots of keyboards and real double bass pick things up considerably.

A lighter 'Magma' without the impending doom and martial beats is the best way to describe this album. Not bad, and there are some nice quiet keyboards and flutes thrown in at certain points before it goes all 'Starsky and Hutch'.

Dobermensch | 3/5 |
