The album starts with a track that could be filed under TripHop today. The sound is incredible when you imagine who less electronic equipment was available at the time of production. "Firebird" is a hymn for all the creative minds out there. This album was way ahead of it's time.

Do not listen to the final track (The Black Mass: An Electric Storm In Hell) under the influence of any psychotropic drugs, unless you enjoy torture & fear.

It's a hard listen sober.

This is a matter of taste, of course. But stemming from Düsseldorf and having been bored by Kraftwerk already in the seventies, I vividly recall having been frightened and fascinated by these three guys (or more precisely: two guys and a girl) who brought together advanced state of the art electronical music and psychedelic rock music. I hear it now for the first time in - say - thirty years, and it seems still nearly as intense as back then. What I hear now and couldn't hear then is the fun they must have had then; so your mentioning the Pythons is not completely off.

One of the best albums of all time [apart from the last track]
Gorgeous, trippy, intelligent electronic pop : )
Criminal that they didn't do anything else together.
And such a shame Vorhaus tarnished the project with poor subsequent releases : (
