3 stars Funny, I remember hearing Daytime on the radio when this LP was released in Brazil. A older friend of mine was a DJ who had an one hour show called Pop Festival. He played a lot of prog bands and Jane was one of them. And although I liked the song only recently I had the opportunity to hear the whole CD. It was not much what I had expected.

For years Ive heard that Jane was a kind of psychedelic/Space rock band, and I was quite surprised to find them anything but that. Actually compared to the other german bands of the time they sounded much more conventional, heavy, blues-rock oriented, than most. Not bad, but not outstanding either. I was thinking their sound was something like Eloys Inside or Amon Dull. And they are not.

It is not to say they are bad. Just a bit ordinary for the time, since there was dozens of other groups doing exactly the same sound in 1971/72. I liked a lot the massive use of the Hammond organ, but their songwriting skills were not very convincing. I mean, theres nothing really new or exciting, even if the band had good musicians and quite a fine singer.

Im looking forward to hear their latter day releases and see if they improved. For this one 3 stars. Barely.
