Album review

Amon Düül II

YETI

BOTH REPERTOIRE

Rising from the ashes of the original Amon Düül, these LPs from '69 and '70, with their space-rock riffing and Eastern flavourings, show a mid-point between Floyd's Ummagumma and Can's Tago Mago. They never made the sort of electronica connections Faust and Kraftwerk did, and new listeners might experience some culture prog-shock. But with the exception of some caterwauling vocals, both LPs improve with repeated listens, especially the title track of Phallus Dei, which levitates before hitting a higher groove.

Rating: 3 / 10
