5 stars I feel compelled to agree with James Unger that this work represents an absolute milestone in progressive psychedelic music. The band is in the grips of an overwhelming psychedelic possession culminating in this, their finest and most challenging recording. The musicianship is akin to an urgent and neuron shattering explosion through inner space. To me, this might be the pinnacle of kraut rock, pillaging the celestial spheres with manic textures and sonic explorations. Whereas a band like Pink Floyd would let their psychedelic explorations evolve as a natural consequence of a particular mood or setting, Amon Duul II at their peak were a more furious band where someone might have the impression that they had completely succumbed to the mind altering substance and were flailing and writhing in their drug induced torture. Simply an astounding performance!
