3 stars I like quite a lot ZAPPA, SOFT MACHINE and VDGG but despite German band EILIFF sounded on their debut very similar to those ones I've to say I can't get familiar with it. Somehow there's something wrong with this record at least according to my taste (which can usually manage quite well with stuff of "acquired taste"). Probably in the type of blending of different styles it's rather unique though not really that much original. Maybe it's because the music is very often quite a kinda noodling and jamming that it can't attract me that much. In the first and third songs it's the dissonant vocals I dislike, in the second one the exaggerated sax playing but the guitar sounds nice there at least. The sitar section in the last track is nice though not really well fitting. Overall this album has nice parts here and there but on the whole I definitely prefer their second one.

A Must-have only for the dedicated Krautrock fan I would say!
