Ikarus = Digipack = (CD)
Finally got the CD reissue of this sucker. Very well crafted German Progressive Rock. Some will try to drag any German band into the Krautrock fold, but this is indeed a full fledged Prog album first and foremost. Plenty of symphonic and jazz-rock elements supported by atmospheric keys and hammering hammond, plus sax and other winds instruments. Be it a very vocal album, they still indulge in plenty of elongated instrumental workouts, while never allowing themselves to get too jammy and freewheeling; it's all pretty tightly composed if you ask me. Some of the lyrics can be cringe worthy, love & peace type of shit, but not that I ever really care about lyrics anyways, but the vocal lines and harmonizing is pretty smooth. Overall a really solid early 70s Prog album that already finds itself in more epic and melodic territories than many of their Kraut peers of that early 70s time period.
