3 stars This is studio album number six from this Psychedelic band out of Germany. I just reviewed the double album released just before this one which I think is better, hitting some highs that this album can't hit. Still you know what your getting with this trio with the guitar leading the way, often distorted as bass and drums support. There are some vocals too but I feel that this band is in a box and there's only so much they can do with their style of music.

We get five tracks from this 2005 release and it's that long one at over 22 minutes that hits the spot while the rest are very much hit and miss. The opener is good for contrasting the mellow with the more amped up sections and there are some vocals. The two shorter tracks 2 & 4 do nothing for me while "Love" does have some merit at 9 1/2 minutes allowing the band to take their time which they do. The long track is called "Peace, Brothers & Sisters!" and man I like the spacey winds that blow early on and for some time too. This does build until it turns heavy after 2 1/2 minutes. Vocals around 4 1/2 minutes. The guitar starts to light it up and it turns heavier after 9 minutes as the vocals return. A calm 13 minutes in without vocals as thy jam in a relaxed manner. Vocals are back before 18 1/2 minutes and it's building again. Here we go once again as we get an uptempo tour de force.

I like this band but I only have one album left to check out and that's the followup to this one called "Tempel" and I'm looking forward to it based on reviews.
