Pacific Sound - Forget Your Dream! (1972)
The one and only album from this Swiss band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of organ, drums, guitars, bass and vocals.
The cover art-work.... Well, not everyone got their right. This one is very misleading. But the song titles is in the same vein and they too is misleading.
Satanic rock ? Occult rock ? Spaced out satanic mass ? Garage rock ?
None of the above.
Organ filled slow blues is what we get here.
Blues with a lot of psych rock and some beat. Add some hard rock too.
In essence, the music is krautrock as it has all the hallmarks of krautrock.
The vocals are decent enough and some of the music is rather good. The sound is also rather good.
There are also some not so good stuff and some rather horrible bad stuff here.
I would not call this album a hidden gem. It is well worth checking out although it is only a decent album.
