4 stars Not typical Krautrock but they definitely have something flavoured like desert or dry fruits, as we can hear via Krautrock.

Very theatrical, dramatic, and enthusiastic "Mass". We cannot always feel such a passion via Krautrock basically (understood that they belong to Eclectic subgenre rather than Krautrock). On the other hand, they launch psychedelic organ-based fuzzy muddy colours in front of them, that can be felt in lots of 60s- or 70s-oldie-goodie psychedelic pop / rock / progressive rock with symphonic spice. Credo suite leans toward this colourful atmosphere, strongly.

Anyway, let me say they can be more appreciated as a psychedelic-flavoured, non-electronic, slightly improvised Krautrock unit, like Eiliff. Their improvisation can be heard in "Sanctus" (especially in the latter part featuring bizarre flute dances and explosive percussion) ... in the same vein like "Eve Of Eternity". Cannot avoid saying they'd played fascinating Krautrock really.

I'm so pleased they got appreciated as an Eclectic progressive rock outfit, as honestly I say. Please listen to the former part (or Side A) of this album, and feel how versatile their playing is, through their dramatic theatrical Musical progression, which make us immersed in Os Mundic world. So happy if you enjoy this creation as a versatile, dramatic Krautrock one. Fantastic indeed.
