Ikarus-Ikarus (1971 masterpiece krautrock)

Ikarus - Ikarus

L'ho gia scritto nel titolo!E' un disco di krautrock /prog bello dall'inizio alla fine!Unico neo...sono solo 4 canzoni e penso sia l'unico disco della band!!!!A voi!

A classic teutonic German progressive rock fusion album in the same vein as Gila, Virus, 2066 & Then, Thirsty Moon or Os Mundi. The album contains four long tracks heavy on instrumental workouts and full of surprises. "The Raven" has a gloomy air, with quotes from Edgar Allan Poe. Jochen Petersen handles all manner of wind instruments amongst 5-other members who create a wonderful atmosphere utilizing organ, guitar, bass, drums and percussion in a uniquely spacious and dynamic style. It's a real shame as this self-titled LP was Ikarus' sole release. RECOMMENDED!
