Grobschnitt - Solar music - live 1978
8.8
Prog-Related
I know it's a live album but IMO it defines Grobschnitt as a band
more than any of their studio albums.

It's a great album one of the best i know. It's also a very
accessible album. I loved it from the second time i listened to it, most progrock albums take a lot longer to digest for me.

The album is essentially an hour long structured jam. Subtle
quiet passages are mixed with explosions of floydian guitar duels (Muhlheim special and Otto pancrock) and keybord sounds (Golden mists).

If i had to name an album which resembles this one i would say
Live side Umma Gumma especially Careful with that axe Eugene.

I recommend this album to people who like
Pink Floyd and people starting in prog. It certainly encouraged me to explore the genre further.
