After the heavy psychedelic and distorted guitars of "Yeti", AMON DUUL II try transpose this formula with many and varied instruments, such as 12-strings guitars, sitar, horn, synths, organs etc... But of course in some tracks you'll find those heavy guitars and fabulous "circular" bass you've loved in "Yeti". Like me, you may find some tracks a little boring, like the "Chasmin soundtrack" and, the 1st time you hear it, the 1st track. But some are particularly exciting, most of all the fabulous (even if repetitive) last track.
Less improvised than their first efforts, this album appears as a transition towards their pop/folk/kraut albums to come. My personal rating : a 7/10.
Download the remastered version there.
And of course, if you like it don't hesitate to buy it, the digipack edition is beautiful and cheap!
