A shamefully ignored Krautrock masterpiece
fu wai | Hong Kong, not applicable Hong Kong | 01/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't understand why such a great record is so underrated. This record fused the ethno-groove ( osmoses), fusion, and sometimes classical movements. It's so energetic and impulsive to every listeners. If you love Can, Faust, Guru Guru, Early Kraftwerk, Early Neu! and Early Tangerine Dream, this record is surely for you. Pink Floyd lovers: you'll find a band that compariable to PF."
Little known krautrock gem
Warren W. Nelson | Mooresville, NC USA | 12/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This little known masterpiece of kosmiche psych from Germany from 1970 very much defines the 'krautrock' sub-genre of progressive music evoking a highly hallucinagenic atmosphere and trippy ambience that the early German experimental rockers were known for(such as Amon Dull II, Can, Faust or Ash Ra Tempel). Annexus Quam distinction on this their debut was that they developed an otherworldly and mystical atmosphere from a loose improvisational framework of a jazz/fusion format containing woodwinds, flute and keyboards in addition to tradional bass, drums, guitar. In each of the four divisions of the title track, the band settles into a groove and organically develop increasingly hypnotic and effect loaded soaring improvisations which litteraly invoke a feeling of being carried away into space. Unlike fusion, the performances are not virtuosic, but each instrument improvises into the basic groove of the song and carries the music into avant-garde and psychedelic texture invoking an atmosphere much like Pink Floyd's "Saucerful of Secrets" or "Ummagamma". There is excellent percussion throughout and beautifully integrated musicianship; you can tell the musicians listen to each other quite well. This is an essential recording for psych/krautrock fans. Also you may want to explore the similarly hallucinagenic and demented kraut band DZYAN, whose album 'Electric Silence' is a wonderful piece of psych madness."
