5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 5 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Recorded in 1970, this album is essentially progressive rock, but there are shades of psychedelic, too. The recording quality is excellent, the musicianship well above standard, the production subtle and sensitive. Overall the most impressive aspect is the arrangements. The keyboard and guitar are mainly to the fore but the rhythm section gets its fair share of the spotlight, and quite rightly so, as the pounding syncopated beats are a joy. The male, throaty singing is pretty much faultless also. There's no doubt about it, Bachdenkel were a tight, inventive band who should've received much more attention than they did. I'd recommend this album to everyone, but especially prog and psych fans. It's an overlooked classic of the early 70s and deserves a place in any collect of that most fruitful of eras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lemmings all around! 25 Nov 2007
By Yuri Garin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is from 1970 and not 1978 as the product description says. This is real underrated classic from the early seventies. Could be easily comparable with Pink Floyd from this same time, but with a touch of good hard rock on it. Don't Believe? Weel, listen to Translation/Equals...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reissue! 13 July 2009
By Greg Kinne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I found a review of this album on Aquariusrecords.org, and they went on about how cool the album art looked. They also mentioned how it was an obscure bit of British progressive rock. Those were the only two points that I had to hear, and I was off in my search of this album in the local record shop after reading rave reviews on the Internet. My request for the record was greeted with a "Who, what's that?" and then I was told it could be ordered. I always had a tendency to think that people who worked in record stores were all knowing, and they would be able to produce this album immediately.

Needless to say, the album was ordered and it arrived in two weeks. When I finally got home with the lemmings album, I stared at the album art some more. I guess I'm a sucker for varmints being chased by a big owl. I put the album on, and noticed that the music was fairly Crimsonesque on first listen. The music was a little heavier than King Crimson and the guitar solos sounded more acidic. Tracks like "An Appointment with the Master," "Strangerstill" "A Thousand Pages Before" were spiced with Nuggets era guitar freak-outs that I definitely appreciate. All songs are rather dark in tone and conjure an eerie mood similar to the album art. The bonus track, "Strange People" might just be the opposite of the album tracks. This song sounds like a Zombies outtake with its French horn flourishes and gentle guitar riffing.

The liner notes indicated that Bachdenkel made several bad decisions that did them in. The first being their choice of name because it was difficult to pronounce, and the second being the move to France even after the UK's Rolling Stone declared them one of England's best underground groups. Lemmings was recorded in 1970, but it was not released until 1973. That long delay in terms of issuing a record also sealed Bachdenkel's fate, combined with being in exile of the music press to furnish rave reviews upon them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should follow the Lemmings 5 July 2008

Great music from a relatively unknown band from back in the early 1970. The combination of early metal threads and folk whimsy is a strange yet beautiful hybird.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bachdenkel - 'Lemmings' (Ork Records) 26 Mar 2011
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First album by this obscure '70's psychedelic band. Liked this CD reissue better than I did their follow-up 'Stalingrad' ('77). Tracks that [sort of] make this piece a should-have are "Translation", the superbly played eleven-minute "The Settlement Song", the inspiring "Stranger Still" and the awesome "The Slightest Distance". Line-up: Colin Swinburne - guitar, organ, piano & vocals, Peter Kimberly - bass & vocals and Brian Smith - drums. Should appeal to fans of Freedom's Children, early Pink Floyd, Beatles psych-era and possibly Arzachel.
