5 stars Seminal live document from the German progressive heavy rockers of Grobschnitt. It features absolutely gorgeous, Hammond organ / guitar dominated epic compositions, including brilliant, aggressive, emotive vocals. "Solar music" is a surprising heavy compositions with furious guitar riffs, brilliant, aggressive, emotive vocals. It carries on with a nice transition to the pleasant spaced out and melodic "Food Sicore" with its delicate guitar harmonies. "Solar music II" starts within a delicate, fragile atmosphere made of floating guitar lines, then it goes into progressive freakouts, a really adventurous listening with pretty rocking guitar solos. In the direct continuation, "Mulheim Special" is utterly heavy and progressive, exclusively instrumental with sumptuous keyboards, guitar solos. really improvised stuff and surely the best moment of the album. "Otto Pankrock" expands the sound into an almost heavy symphonic rock madness. "Solar III" reaches the listener into an other "galaxy, including lots of guitar breaks and crazy Hammond organs. Incredible sense of dynamics, exploring proggy, technical, instrumental playing. Clearly the best Brobschnitt in term of variations, atmospheres and technical capacities of musicians on stage.
