"Second album by this semi-legendary Krautrock group from 1972, following their classic debut 2. Typically, an unusual amount of care was put into this reissue by the people at Garden of Delights: excellent sound, seven extra tracks and almost more information about the group than one could want, rendering another Germanofon bootleg obsolete. For their sophomore effort, we see Eulenspygel sticking to their creative guns, still singing all of there songs in German, and not bending over to their record company by quashing their decidedly leftist leanings, probably no mean feat at the height of Baader-Meinhof hysteria. The opening track demonstrates this fact most pointedly; Titled 'Abfall', this rock opera of sorts clocks in at over 22 minutes, and concerns an orphan named Peter -- the group went so far as to visit a number of orphanages to research the material first hand. Their style was a mix of early Deep Purple and Arthur Brown on one side of the channel and perhaps Witthuser & Westrupp from their native country on the other. More exotic instrumentation than the predecessor, courtesy of Rod Argent(!) at Abbey Road studios where this was more than competently recorded, and the interesting mix of Teutonic folk and blues-based rock make this a fine listen from top to bottom." -- Billy Kiely
