Amon Duul II's third album, 1971's Tanze der Lemminge, is rightly regarded as a milestone of the underground '70s German rock scene colloquially known as Krautrock. It strikes an organic balance between freewheeling improvisations and more conventionally composed material, but it doubles down on both—the improvs are more mindbendingly spacy and the songs are more texturally and structurally complex. At a time when psychedelia had waned and prog rock was on the rise, these Teutonic mavericks charted an offbeat course that incorporated both styles. The first two pieces on the double album are lengthy suites that sport a prog-like sophistication as they shift in mood, mode, and tempo, but they bear a raw, visceral quality that makes the trip a thrill ride. Much of the record's second half is occupied by abstract, experimental journeys that stand tall among the most outré excursions in the Krautrock canon and serve as a reminder of why the style is sometimes called kosmische (cosmic) music.
