2008 digitally remastered reissue of this album from the Krautrockers, one of the most established of all the free expressive improvisational bands in the history of Rock. Fool Moon is an album full of potency and reminds us that this incredible band have lost none of their pioneering spirit. Full of improvisation and experiment they remain as challenging and as influential as they were at their inception. Five tracks. PHLR.
Little known gem

"With no information regarding who played the music on this album or even wrote it, I couldn't help but listen to Fool Moon with a clinical ear first time round. This album is hard to categorise, slightly early Floydish in parts only better? Amon Duul 2 only different? Just give this a listen late at night and you should be amazed at just how good this album is, the longer tracks build up slowly but surely, brilliant production and last track 'hymn for the hardcore'lets you know that this is indeed connected to amon duul 2"
Amon Duul - 'Fool Moon' (Thunderbolt)

"Keep in mind this is NOT Amon Duul II, but the line-up that existed prior to AD II. Although there's no information on this CD's personnel, I thought 'Fool Moon' was a decent pick. Tracks that make this disc worth owning a copy of are "Who Who", the tribal sounding "Tik Tok" and their 17-minute epic "Haupmotor" (best cut on the entire CD). In retrospect, an okay 'vintage' krautrock title."
Fool Moon, you're a fool if you don't own this album!

"I understand that when Amon Duul II's first album Phallus Dei was released they were compaired to Pink Floyd. This album sounds more Pink Floyd than Phallus Dei, even though it is not the same group. The first time I listened to it I knew someone somewhere at some point in time had to have compaired them to Pink Floyd. I enjoy Amon Duul II more though (even though I still enjoy Floyd). Pink Floyd became to commercial towards the early/mid 70's. Anyway, Tik Tok is obviously the best track and I have actually had the pleasure of hearing it on the radio. It was XM radio and I was not able to catch the station (I would love to know what catagory it was grouped under, although I believe it was probably Deep Cuts).
Just so everyone knows this is credited to Amon Duul, although it is neither Amon Duul or Amon Duul II. The album was originally credited to Amon Duul (UK). One of the original members of Amon Duul II went to the UK and with a group of Welshmen created what should have been Amon Duul III (in the early 80's), but it became Amon Duul, and had the '(UK)' added to clear up the confussion. The group released 5 albums (of which this is the second to last) and went their seperate ways. This release simply credits Amon Duul and creats a lot of confussion. On the back it says the album was produced in 1991 although all the information I can find says 1989. But, who cares? It's great music!"
