Hamburg on rye.
Ah Germany. Land of great sausages, beer, and 70's psychedelic music that sounds like nothing else. One such artist is Achim Reichel. Achim Reichel got his start playing in British invasion style bands but as the 60's started to come to a close, he just like many other German's forged ahead to new dynamic dimensions in sound. This would land him in his solo kraut-prog epic band Achim Reichel and the Machines.
I have gone with IV which is in fact his forth record under the Machines banner. A truly great record for Fall. Deeply introspective and all around a journey of an album. This is definitely meant to be heard all the way through so grab some kohl mit käsesosse, sit down, and relax.
