"Terra Incognita" is one of the Baldelli favourites that he played for his cosmic sets in "wrong speed" (45 instead of 33rpm)

Had it not been for their first two albums, Strange Guys would have been thought of as a decent electronic/prog album, but the problem lies in that too many judge this album from their first two, which had a much stronger psychedelic bent to them. Mythos had always been Stefan Kaske, and whoever he could find at the time. Here the band takes on a harder approach, with hard rock-type guitars, on top of late '70s spacy synthesizers. Stefan Kaske's voice is still unmistakable, so if you have trouble with his voice on previous albums, it'll be the same here. He also provides some flute on a couple cuts, but by and far, this is a guitar/synth-dominated late '70s prog rock album and is actually very good. Don't expect it to be anything like their 1972 self-entitled debut or Dreamlab and you'll be fine.
