2 stars The band Gomorrha based in Cologne in 1969 has been influenced initially strongly by 60's beat music and the original version of this album here (which is added up as bonus on the CD re-release) is kept basically in this style using German lyrics. Since especially their vocals in native language wasn't that much appreciated on concerts the band decided to discard the complete recordings and to do new ones with singing in English adding a much stronger psyche and bluesey touch to the songs. Those are mainly dominated by guitar and especially on the title track which is the longest and certainly most interesting one plenty of solos can be found. Keyboards have been used rather sparsely but then highly efficient and in a freaky and psychedelic vein. Not everything on this work here can be considered as Prog since the rest of the songs are more or less blues-tinged psyche rock. Although being not really that much impressing (at least to me) this album is nonetheless a quite decent debut and an interesting collector's item for all fans of early Krautrock.
