Prog Reviewer
2 stars An album that has moments of success when it occasionally lifts itself from the confines of 1969-1971 Krautrock. That old curse of Germans singing in English emasculates any intensity the lyrics may have held and hangs around the neck of Moran Neumülle like an albatross.

It's derivative to the point of saturation and is in no way comparable with their mighty 'Four Letter Afternoon'. Worst of all are the vocals which might have sounded pretty good if sung in German. As it is, they're all a bit embarrassing in their American imitation. Plus the fact - the guy's a crumby singer.

It's clear for all to hear that they can really play together as a unit but unfortunately, 'Out of Focus' sound like a lot of bands from this era. 'Wake Up' is their most 'Rock' album and is dominated by flutes, but unfortunately It's not that good.

Dobermensch | 2/5 |
