3 stars What a coincidence: this evening I selected a few LP's to review for this site and this one turned out to be of one the albums that was reviewed three times (including me) this evening! The sidelong titletrack is the absolute highlight: pleasant shifting moods and splendid play on the Hammond organ by Lutz Rahn who later coloured the Novalis compositions so wonderfully with his lush and varied keyboard sound. Unfortunately the other compositions lack a bit direction. Despite some fine acoustic guitar and excellent work on the Hammond organ I prefer the later LP's like "Novalis" and "Sommerabend" (and of course the magnificent "Konzerte"). Nonetheless, this is a fine symphonic rock experience.
