Amon Düül II - "Hijack" [1974] @ VBR 202 (Kraut Rock)

Hi all. Again I find myself filling a request here. I am not a big fan of Amon Düül II, or krautrock in general. I figured, a fan of the blog asked for it specifically, why not try to track it down... It was pretty hard to find any info about this album as it seems to be a rarity. Enjoy!!

Re-issue of one of the hardest to find albums by Amon Düül II from 1974. Their eighth album it saw the band continue to dabble with more commercial avenues and bring in diverse styles to the bands overall space rock sound. Similar to Vive La Trance and the album that followed Made In Germany, this is inspiring avant-garde rock pop from one of the best German bands of the '70's.

Samples will be back soon!

Keep Listening!!!!

Hmmh ... I like a lot of prog music, even some so-called Kraut stuff like Can, Neu, Kraan, but to me as a German Amon Düül is embarrassingly bad. I listened to all of their records, and I cannot find a single track I like. Especially the vocals are so terrible. - This blog is GREAT!
