Amon Duul II... the second all-time class favorite in krautrock bands (CAN being the first)... this Archangel Thunderbird interpretation is just pure freakin' awesome (even if we do say so ourselves)... there's just so much obscurity in fine detail on this classic kraut psych t-shirt.
There was a time when we didn't understand music like this... perhaps it was too weird, or too foreign, or too heeeeeavy! I think that time was short though, back when our minds were still enveloped by the world media, holding fast onto our fragile psyche to keep us blinded from the true meaning of life and the world at large.
It was probably the music of early Santana that began creaking the doors of perception open, developing a broader understanding of all the shapes and forms of music in the world, what music can be to people... more than just a form of genre entertainment, but actually a carnal element towards a spiritual enlightenment... but not religion, just spirit... human spirit.
WowieZowie! So is that heavy enough for you people? Haha!
Yeah man, speaking from the heart about a band that traveled further than I could ever hope too... but thanks to them (and others), my plan on this earth is completely experimental, highly unexpected, and deeply adverse to prefabrication.
Word is born.
