AllMusic Review by

German progressive rockers Grobschnitt took a major leap forward on their second album, 1974's BALLERMANN. While the ambitious, double-length release featured a fair amount of eccentric drummer/ringmaster Eroc's trademark goofy, Monty Python-esque clowning, the Krautrockers also took a definitive leap from jammy rock to a full-blown symphonic-progressive style, with the 33 1/2-minute "Solar Music" suite, one of German prog's masterworks, which would also be memorably revisited on their 1978 SOLAR MUSIC LIVE album.
