4 stars "Made In Germany" was a real musical transformation for AMON DUUL II and a wonderful progressive album creating the first "Kraut Musical". Told over 2 LP's, this is a sort of dark story of German history put to a slight vaudevillian/cabaret vibe with all that strange DUUL'ish characteristics still intact. The early AMON DUUL II are amongst my favourites in my collection, but this 1975 release is really a solid work of art and deserves to be reviewed in different light. Whimsical at times (and thankfully so considering the theme), yet certainly vintage DUUL.. creative music with a wide variety of moods and tempos. This would have to be the most lyrically profound album they ever recorded and I love Renate Knaup's vocals throughout. Musically this album is also quite moving with some fantastic instrumentation ranging from vintage space jam Krautrock to smoke filled Cabaret themes. Please be aware that a much more condensed version of this album exists (also under the same title) but was released on a single LP at the time.
