Dennis - Hyperthalamus (1975)

The one and only album from this German band.

The band was an eight piece big band with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, flute, saxophone and clarinet.

Dennis is the name of the son of the ex Frumpy drummer Carsten Bohn, the man who formed Dennis.

The band split up in 1974 after the recording of this album and this album was released after their demise.

This album is also regarded as a mini-classic album in the krautrock scene. I had been looking to review this album for a long time.

What do we get here ? Four pretty long songs. The longest one takes the whole side B on this LP album. The music is spacey, jazzy psych krautrock. 

All of it is instrumental and they sounds a bit like Soft Machine on their best. Unfortunate, the pretty poor sound hides what could have been a really good album.

There is still some good stuff here. But not enough.

Hence, it falls between decent and good. It is still an album well worth checking out.

2.5 points
