Ash Ra Tempel - Starring Rosi (1973)


On this 1973 album, Ash ra Temple turn to a more "song" genre with shorts pieces , unlike the early albums, with Rosi Muller's help on vocals. Manuel Göttsching shows his impressive guitar skills throughout the album, like in the excellent first piece, "Laughter laughing", a joyful opener with stunning acid and fluent guitar parts. All the short pieces features solid rhythmic and excellent guitar. « Interplay Of Forces », the long piece (almost 9mn) is much more progressive, in a space cosmic genre. The piece starts with an ethereal and acid introduction, while Rosi recites some esoteric psychedelic lyrics on an inspired tone, alternately in english and german language, creating a fascinating atmosphere. Then it takes off with a stunning drum /guitar flight. This piece is an absolute gem of the genre, sublimated by fantastic sound quality on this very piece. A very good album, ranging from lively pieces to space cosmic rock summits. Spalax 1993 CD version recommended. ASH RA TEMPEL Starring Rosi music reviews and MP3 9( Review from progarchives.com)
