3 stars #1 Hortz Fur DŰhn StekŰhn West::::::::::::: Strong intro, the bass is what hits me first. Crazy vocals with trippy soundscapes in the background. After awhile horns become present and it gives the song more depth. The vocals are my focalpoint in this song (and much of the album), they are done beautifully and with lush arragments. Towards the end of the song, the guitar starts to shine and sing very good.

#2 Ima Suri Dondai::::::::::: Starts off with good and strong. I think of this as a sequil to the albums opener track; Hortz Fur DŰhn StekŰhn West. Great intense drums and superb bass playing. Once again the horns come in making the genre of the song even more hard to describe.

#3 Kobaia Is De Hundin:::::::::::: Great song, very surreal. This song has so many interesting parts about it. This song features great interplay between all the members and progresses fairly quickly.

#4 Da Zeuhl Wortz Mekan´k::::::::::::::: Starts off with the phrase you hear throughout the entire album. Once again, amazing bass, insane vocal arragments, and haunting overtones. This song clocks in at nearly eight minuets.

#5 Nebehr Gudatt:::::::::::::::Mellow intro, nice piano in the backdrop, while the guitar plays harmonics (which I love). This song is the most diverse out of the first four: Hortz Fur DŰhn StekŰhn West, Ima Suri Dondai, Kobaia Is De Hundin, and Da Zeuhl Wortz Mekan´k. Once again the vocals will drive you wild. The horns come again to add a dramatic theme. This song is six minuets long and blends into...

#6 Mekan´k Kommand÷h:::::::::::::::: I consider this a continuation of the previous song Nebehr Gudatt, just like Ima Suri Dondai continues Hortz Fur DŰhn StekŰhn West. Very psychedelic and upbeat, some great guitar playing also occurs in this song, and the vocals will leave you breathless.

#7 KreŘhn K÷hrmahn Iss De HŘnd´n::::::::::::::::::::: This softest song on the album; very weird, unusual, and tripppie, just like much (if not all) of the album. Weird ending to a weird album.
