4 stars Despite the wild name, this is one of the tamer Krautrock releases i've encountered. In fact i'm not sure if this is Krautrock at all with the exception of the fantastic first track 'China.' The rest of the album is more jazz-fusion with progressive blues rock. It kinda reminds me of what Cream might have sounded like if they continued on into the 70s and added some mellotron and saxophone. It makes me think of a hippie heavy psych band that suddenly went into jazz-fusion territory with some progressive surprises here and there.

These guys only put out one album before disbanding on account of their record company demanding they take on a jazzier sound. The album was a grower for me as upon first listening I only liked the first track and thought they sounded a little too derivative of any blues rock band of the day. The progressiveness is in the subtleties and I have to say that after repeated listens I like this a lot. I'm not sure if it's the remastering or what but the production is so crisp and clean and full that it sounds like it was recorded in modern times.
