AllMusic Review by Archie Patterson

Reise is an audio documentary of Embryo's end of the '70s "Journey" through the Middle East, a musical diary of their various experiences with master musicians and street players alike, from Bombay to the docks of Calcutta and beyond. No clinical exercise in musicology or studio session, it lives and breathes with the sounds and smells of music created from the creative flow of life in progress. Ethnic instruments, jazz, rock and chants combine to create a vibrant tapestry of sound on this magnificent double album.
