HOLDERLIN's first album, was recorded in 1970, and entitled HOLDERLIN's TRAUM. (Dream.) One could hardly call it "Krautrock", in the sense one heard that genre develope by Can, Faust, early Tangerine Dream or Amon Duul. Holderlin's Traum, for one thing, was one of the very first rock albums sung completely in German. Moreover, their first album is definately PSYCHEDELIC FOLK, right down to the sitar on "Strohhalm", dreamy lyrical themes, middle eastern percussion, and recorders. I would place their early sound somewhere between other German psych-folk musicians Witthuser and Westrupp, and the band Broselmaschine. Both those bands, like Holderlin, also sung in German, and had sitars/recorders/ and trippy production. (and were all signed to OHR records.) So, based on my love for HOLDERLIN'S TRAUM, and little else, I ordered HOELDERLIN's second album, when I saw it newly remastered and released on CD. The album was a shock. Gone were the German lyrics, the psychedelic folk touches like the sitar, and the dreamy female singer from the first album. Instead, they had moved into a heavy prog/art rock sound, sung by different male vocalists in English. (with a german accent tho.) Now, there is nothing wrong with this, and had Holderlin released something to fill in the blank between 1970 when their first album was published, and this album from 1974, maybe their stylistic change wouldnt have come as such a shock. But after a few listens, I asked myself, "Are they really so different?" The band members were mostly the same. It was almost as tho the folk band just added more instruments, more complex composistions, and more sophistication.Read more ›

This is German progressive rock of the 1970s at its best. Actually, this is some of the best progressive rock of the 1970s. This music compares well with the first 4 albums of King Crimson, which are my favorite albums of King Crimson. Hoelderin sounds unique but the overall atmosphere of their music could be compared to early King Crimson and Genesis, at moments sounding a bit reminiscent of Jethro Tull due to their use of flute, Supertramp in some of their lightness and saxophone playing similarity and once a while reminding us of Peter Hammill's vocal lines crossing in between talking and singing. Their music has nothing in common with the mechanical and electronic sound of krautrock. The song structure and melody lines of Hoelderin are in the tradition of the most beautiful progressive rock music coming out of England at about the same time when Hoelderlin's (of earlier name) first amazing album Holderlins Traum came out in 1972, full of acoustic folk beauty sung in German. The album I am reviewing, Hoelderlin (1975), as well as their following album, could be the most interesting progressive rock album coming from outside of English speaking countries of 1970s, perhaps surpassing even Ange's best efforts. This album is done in English and both vocalists, Christoph Noppeney and Joachim Grumbkow showcase not only a perfect use of our language but their accents sound to me more as if they were coming to us from a different epoch than a country.

The album starts with an amazingly strong instrumental track Schwebebahn, which introduces us to their spectacular deep progressive rock sound added by the use of viola and saxophone . Following it I Love My Dog at first takes me back to Pink Floyd's Ummagumma mood-wise, and then it grows into an awesome track.

Originally released in 1975, this was the German folk / progressive band's second album. One thing about this Hoelderin title offers it's listeners is the fact that the CD reissue often changes moods. Tunes that had me sit up and take notice were the seven-minute opener "Schwebebahn" - English translation: Monorail , "Honeyspot" and the seventeen-minute power-house epic "Death Watch Beetle" (worth the price of admission, alone). Core line-up: Joachim Kaseberg - guitar, Peter Kaseberg - bass, Christoph Noppeney - acoustic guitar, viola & vocals, Joachim Grumbkow - keyboards, flute, mellotron, clavinet & lead vocals and Michael Bruchmann - drums & percussion. Should draw in fans of Black Widow, Eloy and possibly early Jefferson Airplane.
