Only for completionists 2. This album is said to be inspired by Aldous Huxley's famous, enchanting writings & mystical philosophy. It's clear that the entirety of the album is assured by a vast arsenal of weird incantations and deep hallucinogenic effects. The content is very colourful, luminous, eclectic and perfectly orchestrated. Impression on Reading Aldous Huxley seems like the perfect soundtrack for a hippie-era film adaptation of the novel, Brave New World.

Your feedback for Impressions On Reading Aldous Huxley. Featured New Releases. Impressions on Readung Aldous Huxley. Conceived as a studio project and conceptually inspired by the world of sci-fi novelist Aldous Huxley, Brave New World was created by Reinhart Firchow recorders, flutes, ocarina, Stylophone, percussion, vocals, John O'Brien-Docker guitars, organ, percussion, vocals, wind chimes and Herb Geller flutes, cor anglais, saxophones, organ. They where aided by Dicky Tarrach drums, percussion, Lucas Lindholm bass, bass fiddle, organ, piano and Esther Daniels voice. Sadly, after they released Impressions on Reading Aldous Huxley in 1972 and then dissolved. Exceptional psych-electronic rock experimentations by an other obscure 70's band from Germany. Nothing is linear or boring and the psych grooves work like magic. It's not easy. Brave New World is a dystopian novel by English author Aldous Huxley, written in 1931 and published in 1932. Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society which is challenged by only a single individual: the story's. Their album, originally released on Vertigo in 1972, featured an eclectic mixture of styles, blending medieval music, folk, electronics, jazz and rock in pure krautrock eclectic lore in the line of Annexus Quam, Achim Reichel or Tomorrow's Gift

Great Krautrock album!! Do anyone know is the cover picture real. If so, where it was taken?
Hi everybody:

I have the unofficial release of Brave New World, does anyone have any info about? The roundout num/letters are: ATL40299, I bought it some years ago on eBay...

Thank you

These are one of those old German groups who recorded one amazing album and the vanished into obscurity. Their style was very bizarre, comprising of elements of rock, jazz, classical and Eastern music. It's not possible for us to compare them with anyone else as we've heard nothing like it. Side 1 has 5 tracks, the second track is Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon...Ford, and is full of unusual ideas; weird, slurring drums, droning organ, haunting breathing sounds...the whole affect is quite astounding. Most of side 2 is taken up by The End, which works along similar lines with a backdrop of amplified Stylophone, chanting vocals and growling bass fiddle. All we can say is if you see it, buy it, as it is a very rare and hard to find album.

Yes, this must be a concept album, at least according to the title, but not much inside the grooves conveys a Huxleyan atmosphere. Although the brainchild of O'Brien, who wrote or co-wrote all the material, the main ingredient is the truly magical flute of Geller, who can produce any style imaginable and does so convincingly, too.
A sad recorder over solemn organ in ''Prologue'' slowly gives way to the warm sound patterns of ''Alpha'', a versatile piece of jazzy rock and leading to passages with experimental use of different tape speeds. ''Lenina'' is very serene with a narration and multi-voiced flutes, while ''Soma'' is krautrock in the best of traditions with long guitar improvisations over a floor of organ. Almost early Pink Ployd, but with the unusual sound of an embedded flexatone. And there is ''Malpais Corn Dance'', an unlikely track that sounds like folk music played by Martians.
Side B is dominated by the long suite ''The End'' (nothing to do with The Doors, of course) which pulls all stops. Wistful wind, English horn, ocarina, double-tracked recorders, sombre monk's choirs, Scottish percussion, wild electric guitars, heavy synths, cascading saxes, soft-horror, well anything almost, but somehow forged into a meaningful whole, that can hardly be compared with anything else we have heard. Krautrock in its best form, an at times almost magical record!
