4 stars IBLISS were a six piece band from Germany who put out only one album before disbanding. They played a jamming style of Krautock that was all instrumental except for the odd vocal expression. There was flute and sax besides the traditional instruments. Lots of percussion by the way, and the main percussionist Basil Hammoudi used to play with ORGANISATION. Also Andreas Hohmann the drummer played on KRAFTWERK's debut. Conny Plank was the engineer.

"Margah" opens with percussion galore (three of them played it) until 3 minutes in when the drums take over then other instruments join in.The guitar starts to solo before 5 minutes and he rips it up. "Drops" opens with faint sounds that come and go. The main melody comes in and it's very laid back sounding. Sax comes in around 5 minutes and plays some lazy melodies. Things start to build in intensity. Great sound here. The melody stops and the last 2 minutes become experimental. "High Life" opens with bass, flute and drums which create a relaxing soundscape. Some vocal expressions on this one and the sound becomes more passionate. I like ! "Athir" opens with soft flute as percussion and other sounds add support. Sax after 4 1/2 minutes takes over for flute. Flute returns late.

I like jamming music so this is right up my alley. Trippy stuff.
