4 stars UFO must be one of those albums dividing opinions a lot. I sure think it's an excellent album for what it is: acid-drenched, sweaty, raw, free form jamming. It seems that the trio Neumeier, Trepte & Genrich decided that they should just jam in the cellar for their first album. None of the songs seem to be thought out before, and that is their strength.

With a less capable line-up, an experimentation like this would fall flat, but these guys had the needed looseness and responsiveness along with some improvisation skills to pull this off. They are definitely not gurus on their instruments, but that fact adds a bit of danger to the music and makes it more appealing.

I'm not going into detail about the individual songs, as it's sometimes hard to tell them apart, but that is no weakness, just a strength for the album. It's just a 36 minutes long trip to the world of psychedelic hard rock jamming.

4 stars. Recommended for those who enjoy listening to good jamming.
