5 stars Another double album for Amon Duul II another masterpice of krautrock and prog, and thiere highest regarded album by many, not hard to see why, toghter with Yeti this is my favorite Amon album and a real masterwork, you culd almost say that Amon duul II was the Mars Volta of its time or that the mars votla is the amon duul ii of our time in that thiere albums where very long and loaded with amazing music and in my opinion thiere styles are not realy that far away from eachothers both played a type of psycedelic space rock that culd easily blow your mind, okay the bands dont sound anything alike but the style is as i said not that far way from eachother much imporvistion and much intrumentla playing with wierd vocals. So if the mars volta whuld yust slow down litle they might end up sounding like this maybe. Anyway this is toghter with yeti and Tago mago by Can probobly my favorite krautrock album its made up by 3 long pieces and 3 shorter instrumentals the first 2 long epics are the best Syntelman's March of the Roaring Seventies and Restless Skylight-Transistor-Child very good psycedliec space rock with lots of stuff goin on and alot acustic playing surprisinlgy mixed with the heavier guitars of old. The Marilyn Monroe-memorial-church is an improvistaion, pretty spooky and in places very cool and wierd, sounding not to far way from Tangerine dream. The 3 ending songs or instrumentals since theres no vocals are the most stright hard rocking stuff on the album and very nice, great riffs reapeted over and over like your typical krautrock and adictive basslines. Well this was my first amon duul II album and it was a grand start, maybe a bit too much to take in if your new to this type of music maybe the debute is the best place to start but this is essential krautrock that you must have. A masterpiece of progressive music, 5 stars.
