My favourite record ever? Could be.


tell it.


A stunning record - it often produces a tear or two to run down my old cheeks

I played this one last night. Half of it's like a proto-Argus but even better and the other half's rather dull blues rock.

And Jail Bait is still rather offensive

Agreed, I thought that while I was listening to it.

A disappointing album - a real mixed bag.

And the horrible live track tagged on the end

Once you get past the slightly strained English this is a great track from a splendid album.

With my love of most things Scandinavian and prog I really should be loving The Flower Kings but still not got there for some reason.

Trying this one for the 1st time tonight and I suppose it does seem to be sitting a little more comfortably with me so will lob it onto December’s drive / commute playlist.

Haven't listened to this for ages, not a bad little album.

Was listening to this earlier, had it for years but it was the third time I've played it this week, really like this album.

I'd agree but it could have done with an edit to Macho City.

That's one of the tracks I really like about it, wish it was longer!

A masterpiece of krautrock - an adventure for your ears - highly recommended. With a good bit of luck this gem has survived. The three musicians are excellently harmonizing. Well-conveived - not aimless noodling, unique, performed with tons of impressing echo-guitar, but also melodic, sounding fresh and contemporary not only because of the good sound mix. And that should be enough for the praise ...

One for you Conny , another top pick for the more discerning listener.
