Album assigned by: A.A
You have to listen to it four times.
Some days ago I listened to this album three times and after that I had pretty much figured out what to write about it:
- That it’s supposed to be krautrock though I wouldn’t know what’s so kraut about it. Except for the fact that it’s German.
- That to my ears it sounded more like generic early 70’s jazzy and proggy rock with touches of canterbury style psychedelica.
- That I’m not qualified to make comments on the quality of the album is this is the genre I have the least affinity with.
- That all in all it sounds competent and original enough for a recommendation to those that love the genre.
- Just not for me.
But tonight I happened to listen to the damn thing for a fourth time on my bike on the way from work and heard quite a few pleasant and groovy instrumental passages. I don’t have the time nor the patience to go for a fifth helping of Electrip though.
So you have to listen to it yourself. Me, I’m all confused. I’m not gonna listen to any music for at least a week.
