4.0 out of 5 stars Great Underground German Rock, 13 Nov 2008
This review is from: Phallus Dei (Audio CD)
This is a great example of free expressive underground rock from the early 1970s. It's riff laden, trippy, lots of dirty guitar, lyrics sung in stoned out German and feels like the musicians are having one hell of good time jamming together. It's played by the musically competent members of the Amon Duul collective, who you can tell are totally wrapped up in their radical lifestyles of the time. Thankfully devoid of the drippy hippysih ramblings of Amon Duul 1, these guys must have rivalled Hawkwind for being the kings of stoned out heavy rockers, and you can just imagine hordes of greasy long haireds throwing their arms around at some German free festival. Each track has its merit and special riff ( specially like the devilish Luzifers Ghilom), the only odd bod being Henriette Krotenschwanz, an eerie Third Ear Band like trip back to the Bergmanesque travelling musician time.
