3 stars What a mysterious, slippery obscurity. AG A.M. (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Ante Meridiem) have been made their short appearance with a self- released LP titled "Erinnerungen an eine positive Phase" that is veiled in a sleeve of odd lithography. Basically no distortion nor electronic weirdness can be heard via their melody lines and sound phrases, and optimal acid folksy stream should envelope listeners up. Surprisingly sometimes their "fake" appearances here and there ... wondering where they wanted to go as rock specialists really.

It might be almost appropriate to call this German point mutation as Kraut-acid-folk, I guess. The first track "Der Steinadler" features quiet, psychedelic guitar poetry and solemn (pan) flute wind charm, as if they would appeal to the clear blue sky. This movement reminds me of non-fuzzy Les Rallizes Denudes. "Die Positive Phase Vom Eindruck Eines Kanadischen Spiegels (In Der Groίen Stadt)" is a pretty lovely old- fashioned psychedelic rock along with surrealistic guitar basis. Eerie (pan) flute vibes drive an acoustic ballad "Beautiful Remembrance" more and more mad.

Anyway, in this album is something like "River-Blues", that has no novelty nor originality but inconsequential bluesy rudeness. On the other hand, "Ballad Of The Lonesome Rover" has given me a smiley smile with its contemptuous 'country and western style' texture and their attitude for the audience. "Blancanieve" or "Die Birke" sounds like a simple tune drenched in psychedelia. Via "I'll Come Back" cynical sound beats with dry guitar chops can be launched. Oh what.

Finally, wondering where they wanted to go and what they wanted to play, but hey please give careful consideration once again ... this confusion itself could be called as Krautrock methinks. Yes, the more we enjoy this obscurity, the better it tastes and the more we get immersed. Makes sense AG A.M. should be great indeed.
