Jeronimo - Jeronimo (1971)
The second album from this German band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, percussions, bass, drums and English vocals.
This band was quite a big band back in the early 1970s and released three albums. Each of them to be reviewed/has been reviewed here. The review of the debut album is here. An album I was not that impressed with as it was a hard beat album.
The band has moved on with this album. What we get here is hard psych and hard rock.
There is a lot of hard riffing here. More or less the full forty-five minutes is dedicated to hard psych and hard riffs.
The music is still pretty effective and verse-chorus-verse dominated. Some good guitar solos is included. Some solos in the Led Zeppelin vein.
.... Why the earth the band decided to kill of the good mood on this album halfway through with a totally pointless drum solo is something I cannot understand. The acoustic parts here is not that impressive either. But they are good compared to that atrocity of a drum solo. A dull as heck many minutes long drum solo......
There are some good stuff here, the disasterous drum solo and some decent stuff. So my overall impression is that this is a decent to good album. It is not an album I will remember for long.
