5 stars Pure psychdelia! We can smell it's rock and roll from far! Exceptional bass lines, psych improves on keys and guitars with little touches of jazz, a powerful drum that add much things on the melody with impact! Electronic and spacy timbres are also found (in the beginning of "Kontakt" is found albums climax of electronic music reference).

The introduction of "Aggression" is an invitation to the album and this songs is all about rock. "Kommunikation" is one of the best kraut songs ever and its end is just phenomenal (listen in stereo and you'll know what i'm talking about)! The percussion and the guitar, together with a baby moan, on "Kollaps" give me chills. "Kontakt" begins on an electronic and experimental wave but it ends in chords! "Kollektivitat" is like a bridge to the last song, "Individualitat" (made of percussions), both are incredible too. Right, I'm trying to say that there were no mistakes in the building of this album, is just superb!

And its conceptual part is also fantastic and well worked. The album is made by themes, contemporary themes of our lives.

Finally, an absolute masterpiece!
