Bröselmaschine - Bröselmaschine (1971 Germany) @320


This is a solid folk prog record containing surprisingly varied tracks, sometimes flirting with an Indo/raga rock style, like on the "Schmetterling" track. The lead vocals are shared between a man and a woman: the woman's voice is really very good. The quality of the numerous acoustic string instruments is VERY impressive, in terms of composition, sound and technicality. There are some very charming & childish duct flute-like parts. The bass has a funny carton paper sound. Some moments remind a simpler Mike Oldfield's or even Anthony Phillips' work. There is a long, funny and impressive wah-wah guitar solo on "The Old Man's Song"; the floating mellotron at the end is a very good surprise! There is something wrong with the sound of the metallophone on the last track, like if it came from a mono output lacking surround effect.
