Review by philippe
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars If their first was a weird folk obscurity, this last is just a vague collection of conventional heavy rocking compositions. We can simply notice an enthusiastic sense of improvisation during the breaks and lead guitar solos, including short soul jamming sessions, funky & jazzy rythmical accompaniments. "Garden Of Loneliness" is a strong, special and dynamic rocking piece with wha wha guitars, agressive vocals, occasionally featuring calming sequences with nice floating guitar lines. "Stoned" is a massive, punchy heavy rock sounding composition, including some acoustic guitar parts (during the break) and a technical drummy improvisation at the end. A proggy rock'n roll essay but absolutely not inspired despite some honest guitar leads and spontaneous instrumental demonstrations. I don't have a lot of to say about this album because it introduced nothing really captivating or original. Easy stuff to forget directly after one listening. Far to 70's German psych-fusion freakouts / mysticism despite that they are historically associated to the krautrock movement.
