3 stars What a loose, easygoing, trippy session far from refinement, with so bad recording condition (or their tape itself) ... but trust me, this fuzzy noisy junk room can be fine for us, who do want to get relaxed, altered states of mind.

With old-fashioned, hackneyed noises upon playing a vinyl, lots of percussive instrumental tremors and ethnic flavoured sitar / acoustic guitar sounds gradually invade into our brain as a massive attack ... this "Karawane Der Mystiks" can be said not really delicate nor decent, but such a crooked, deformed sound structure can give us another world trip. With their delightful (oh sounds NOT serious at all!) slightly religious melody creation, especially quake-like deep / noisy percussion, we definitely can get intoxicated, and wonder what they had felt and thought under such a mind-in controllable trip state. Guess they had launched noises and sounds as they wanted to do without any thought or intention actually, but this creation filled with eccentricity and obscurity can throw various imagination upon us ... enough for us.

What is beauty around music? What is comfort? BLUMEN DES EXOTISCHEN EISES have let us know such a difficult issue with this unknown product. And yes, their mysteriously indolent jam session should never be thought meaningless but pretty mind-altering, kosmiche-launching, and let me say, they can let us know a wonder / a power of Krautrock. Not structural nor polished so cannot be approved by fans of melodious Krautrock like Can, Amon Duul II methinks, but would you like to try such an obscure Krautrock mystery?
