4 stars The music of Dschinn is basically a vintage (classic) hard rock with some prog elements especially with the facts that the structure sometimes are not quite straight forward. One think I enjoy about the music around this time of release is on the sound quality, it's so vintage and really old time sound. I can sense the analog kind of recording technology. In addition, the music itself is really enjoyable, combining the kind of The Beatles but in heavier sounds. If you know another Germany band called themselves as TEA, it's basically the similar kind of music. Or, if you know Popol Ace or Popol Vuh. I really enjoy with this record. All over the passages, the music flows nicely with tight and dynamic basslines as main rhythm section, combined with dynamic drumming and stunning guitar solo. The singing style is also great.

The first track "Freedom" (04:48) is a high energy hard rock music with great bass guitar playing (I like it very much) and dynamic drumming combined with nice riffs and also guitar solo. Bass guitar plays important role in creating the rhythm section and augments the great singing line. The next two tracks "Fortune" (04:56) and "I'm In Love " (04:46) move in similar vein like the opening one. "Train" (04:56) starts off nicely with harmonica in upbeat style. "Let's Go Together" (03:11) starts off with a percussion work and moves in The Beatles style, followed by nice harmonica solo. It has an intense progressive element. "Smile Of The Devil" (04:24) is a mellow track with tight basslines and guitar fills accompany wonderful singing. Again, the bass guitar solo is stunning followed beautifully by guitar solo. The two concluding tracks "I Wanna Know" (03:34) and "Are You Ready" (04:03) are all performed in fast tempo and upbeat music. The bass guitar solo and guitar solo at the end of "Are You Ready" are excellent. Unfortunately it has to fade out .

Overall, the music of this album is really great hard rock music with some progressive elements and I tend to give it a five stars rating. But I have to be fair that there was already Genesis "Foxtrot" had been released and this album by Dschinn is not measuring up to that level yet. But let alone, this is a great music. The disc contains bonus tracks that are good also. Keep on proggin' ..!!!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
