Whereas some bands kind of burst The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead the scene and exited without a trace, Achim Reichel had a gentler approach. While he started out as a fairly successful pop star in s Germany, he transitioned into the psychedelic prog world without jettisoning his pop creds right away.

This one only has four musicians in addition to Reichel which gives it a somewhat stripped down feel from the previous albums but overall has the same tripped out lengthy sonic journeys into that zone between worlds.
The standard rock drumming is more prominent with the congas and ethnic influences having dispersed into the ethers however the vibraphone effects are back with the exception of "Turbulenzen". The jazzy touches are back but are less jazzy and more light and fluffy and merely subordinate to the guitar echoes and are too quite echoey in the production department. This is probably one of the most under-appreciated Reichel albums in his A.
