2 stars At first let me say please, this legendary album created by four Krautrock vanguards sounds like a good bluesy psychedelic rock stuff basically. But just kidding for me that this album belongs to the Krautrock subgenre. Their pioneering works around 1970 might let every Krautrock freak think this is kinda Krautrock-ish, I guess. "All-Bumm" features 11 short tracks each of which is catchy and comparably smooth, acceptable even for pop fans. Some of the tracks have Kraut-y quirky electronic tinge (especially "Flying"), that you can dare feel German-psychedelika- electronika, but for example in "See Me In Your Dreams" East-Coast-like mighty freaky voices would drive you out of the progressive rock world definitely. The first "Going Home" sounds primitively comfortable and of fluent pop. Cannot imagine why they can be categorized as a Krautrock combo, or why they can be in the progressive rock territory even now. Do not misunderstand me, I'm not saying the quality of this album is bad, but sadly I cannot find any innovative movement via their only one creation, that should not be as novel as Sitting Bull's "Trip Away" or Pancake's "Roxy Elephant". Simply said, a collector's item.
Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
