1 stars What's the big deal with this album? I've wanted and tried to like this for four years and I still don't get it. It sounds like the kind of distorted racket coming from someone's window as you walk down the street. The first track 'Stone in' is incredibly annoying with a hideously raw sounding electric guitar accompanied by amateurish drums and bass. It's a directionless mess made by three guys who clearly couldn't concentrate or care less. Track 2 'Girl Call' isn't much better and I can feel my blood pressure rising as it goes on and on. Aarrgh! I can't take any more. Sorry I'm going to have to forward the cd - just a minute...

Maybe it's just me, I mean this has a score of 4.28 in The Archive at the moment, with 19 ratings so it can't be that bad can it?. Well, one thing's for sure I won't be buying any more Guru Guru. I've had enough, although I have heard that Uli Trepte's Spacebox album from 1979 is really good so I'll maybe try and hear that one day, maybe, say in 2020. The title track is marginally better as the guitar no longer sounds like someone dragging their nails down a blackboard, but it's still just a big shapeless messy blob.

But hey! wait a second, the last track 'Der LSD Marsch' has risen this album to a mighty 1 star as the band finally emerge from hibernation, but it's too late. Much too late. Dear oh dear, this is awful stuff.
