I love these guys. They are the sound at the core of my soul.
This is a great album for fans of old-school, raw psychedelia. Kinski are sound purists. No digital effects are employed. This is stripped down analog sound- you may be unfamiliar with that concept. There is nothing overproduced or pretentious about this album.
The tracks, sonically, are not less than a landing 747 flying 150 feet directly over your head.
Don't buy this album if that idea doesn't appeal to you.

I got to see them live and they were every bit as good as their disk. Kinski ROCKS!

Otherwise, here are the ingredients found in this album:
- Black Sabbath's heavy riff (with a riff squarely pumped to Black Sabbath in the opening title!)
- QOTSA "drone guitars"
- Crossing guitar walls like Sonic Youth
- finally, also to announce an influence King Crimson (first album) on a nice title with flute and felted atmosphere: "All Your Kids Have Turned to Static".
