3 stars I've just seen that this one hasn't been reviewed yet. Let's say a few words about this third album by Eroc (drummer and original member of Grobschnitt). Contrary to his first solo effort Eroc clearly put the accentuation on solid progressive rock compositions, almost rejecting his convinced experimentations & demonstrations in electronica. "3" stays a good follow up to "Zwei". The positive aspect is the diversity of atmospheres created and the pleasure to play together. The opening track is a massive, heavy bluesy track with some aggressive drum parts. "Tontillon" is a floating rock composition featuring a nice melodic guitar line with some keyboards arrangements. "Fito linte" starts with a wonderful, dreamy acoustic guitar interlude accompanied by spacey electronic effects then carries on an other emotional dimension. "Wolkenreise" is a kind of Teutonic folk, popular music interpretation with accordion, synth and guitar. "Solar Plexus" is an original and fantasist musical piece starting with a theatrical narration in German. The track progressively goes into a dancing, animated folkish excursion. "Euer Lied" is a drum interlude by Axel Harlos. "Falke Whips It Out" is a grotesque, satiric speed rock song closed to Grobschnitt's material."About my town" is an imitation of boogie woogie. "Sunny Sunday's Sunset" is an other typical Grobschnitt's heroic and lyrical symphonic rock composition. It can be a nice surprise if you are into Grobshnitt sound.
