5 stars Before turning to something more peaceful, soft and accessible with terribly boring "new age" efforts, Deuter made a name in the krautrock scene with the absolutely marvellous "D", essentially made of extended "tribal", "droning" and noisy improvisations. All tracks provide an ecstatic, glorious and sacred dimension that allows a comparison with the pioneering "Inside of the dream syndicate" and some archetypal psychedelic stuffs from Germany (Cluster at their beginning and Amon Duul at their most experimental moments). "Babylon" is an amazing, freaky composition with bizarre, strange, concrete "manipulated" sounds and fuzzy spacey guitar parts. "Der Turm/Fluchtpunkt" develops a ritual stoned theme always bringing to the fore some fuzzy guitars, tribal percussions and chaotic noises. With its large, cyclical organ sound and its patterns for sitar "Krishna Eating Fish and Chips" is a small interlude dedicated to spiritual music. The last track, "Atlantis" is the pick of Deuter's musical creativity: an intense, abstract dreamscape mixed with tribal, ritual percussions. "Gammastrahlen-Lamm" is a ferocious, dense level of transcendent sounds obtained by organic collages & loops; something nostalgic with ultra psychedelic effects. A progressive rock masterpiece and one the best effort produced during Krautrock's golden years.
