CD Reviews

Amon Duul II - 'Vortex' (Inside Out)
Mike Reed | USA | 10/15/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"First came out in 1981, as 'Vortex' was AD II's follow-up to 1978's 'Only Human'(see my review) and a bit better of an effort by this long-running krautrock ensemble. As I looked at the liner notes, I couldn't help but to notice that vocalist Renate Knaup is back. Yeah! Basically,they're not Amon Duul II without her. A couple of other old members had returned as well,recruiting new bassist Jorg Evers. Cuts I liked the most were "Wings Of The World", the awesome "We Are Machine" and "Vibes In The Air". The two added bonus tracks are pretty decent as well. Welcome back,after a three year absence there,AD II."
