Ardo Dombec - Ardo Dombec

 3.999 stars really. The only reason why this does not get four is that although excellent , this is not a must . This sole album ( and ultra rare vinyl ) is a typical product of those years in germany and there are many examples of this. I would not say this is a typical Krautrock in the understood value ( Guru , AD II , Can , Ash Ra etc.. ) but more of a proto-prog in the style of Gracious , Raw Material etc.... However , this is a typically tasteless cover such as most groups from Germany did for the joke and for the shock - After all this is rebelious R N'R . Provocation was really their thing as this has one of the shortest track ever layed down on vinyl : the 8 second Oh , Sorry that came complete with a loud scratch that made you jump out of the sofa to see what the problem was. For the rest , the music is excellent but slightly sloppy in production and the sung English lyrics are not perfect. Definitely worth a spin but there are other priorities.(Sean Trane )
