2.0 out of 5 stars Be careful, 2 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Meetings With Menmachines (Audio CD)
This is bad, really bad. I read somewhere that the band were annoyed that these songs were released when they weren't even finished - this sounds highly plausible. If this had been the first album by some aspirng new '80s band it would be more forgiveable, but the fact that it has been issued under the name of one of the great European avant-garde rock bands is bordering on criminal. The main problems: awful bouncy forgettable pop music (yes, this is Amon Duul) and Ms Wareing's voice, which sounds like your big sister unwisely outstaying her welcome at karaoke night. You would think that Amon Duul could find themselves a decent singer with a powerful distinctive voice somewhere in Europe, but no...
So why two stars instead of one? The last track 'Burundi Drummers Nightmare', hints at the band's former power and glory - significantly Ms Wareing does not lead the singing - even if it doesn't get close to 'Phallus Dei', 'Dance of the Lemmings' or 'Yeti' (for example), and one or two others would have made reasonable instrumentals.
So be careful, here lie crimes against krautrock.
