2 stars For sure, a band that lend its name to one of my top 10 albums had to be checked out. Especially seeing it listed under kraut rock had my hopes up even higher. As it turned out this rather sounds like a dated Thin Lizzy album then like anything kraut or Prog. But it's a fun ride still.

The songs are all fairly similar, swinging hard rock with lots of blues and organs, the mandatory boogie woogie tune and one extended track (Rock Song) that makes room for some psychedelic jamming. My favorite one would be Roundabout, its distinguishing qualities being a catchy guitar lead and a solid chugging rhythm.

A fairly unremarkable album with good tunes from pre-historic ages. Nothing too wild or exciting and certainly no kraut (if that would either motivate or hinder you to check it out). Nice cover though.
