3.0 out of 5 stars Conceptual political satire March 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is a bit of a surprise, if you are expecting music from beginning to end. The premise is a series of eulogies for a german who died in 1972, as one of the richest men in the world. The eulogies are all in german, by the way. The title means VULTURE SYMPHONY in english, and the vulture is the wealthy man, who made a lot of money with the Nazis. The CD's structure has some purely musical sections, but not many. Other parts have music under the eulogies, and sometimes, it's just spoken word. On other Krautrock from this era, spoken word is layered on top of constant musical accompliment, like Sergius Golowin's album LORD KRISHNA. For me, the lack of constant music under the spoken word hurts this peice. If you understand German, have a taste for political satire, and have avant guarde musical tastes, you might like this. But if you want a CD filled with music, and sung melodies, song structures, etc, then don't bother with this. Try Wegmuller's TAROT instead, or anything by Cosmic Jokers. I will give the GeyerSymphonie this: great Album Cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Floh De Cologne - 'Geyer Symphonie' (Ohr / ZYX Music) August 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Originally released in 1973, at first I didn't expect this entire lp (nice to have it on CD reissue) spoken entirely in German. Do keep in mind that the music here is very good. Just three tracks to be thoroughly taken in. The cosmically brilliant (in it's own right) "Satz: La Grande Tristesse [Requiem]" (7:10), "Satz: Danse Macabre [Totentanz]" (13:12) and "Sanz: Serenade Des Vautours [Leichenschmaus]" (23:30) which is more like a twenty-three minute play - a real trip - lengthy dialogue with many changes in the improvised music in the background. Again, even though I couldn't understand more than a few words here and there, I still get a lot out of 'Geyer Symphonie' as I plan to keep it in my current rotation stack for awhile. A bit different from their first two CD's that I've had for awhile now - 'Fliessbandbabys Beat-Show' and 'Profitgeier'. Definitely, an acquired taste.
