    Like its namesake mythical creature, Amon Duul II's YETI is a gigantic, threatening, and elusive beast that will easily trample listeners underfoot. Following up the epic PHALLUS DEI, YETI finds the Krautrock offshoot codifying their terrifyingly feral improvisations across four album sides of loud, psychedelic excess and dotting the fried landscape with a loose songcraft. "Soap Shop Rock," the four-part album opener, features droning organ, grilled violin, the distorted guitar tandem of Chris Karrer and John Weinzierl, and the yowling arias of Miss Renate Knaup fighting for space, while "Cerebus" loosens the band's more acoustic and Eastern yearnings. The entire album remains one of Krautrock's heavy masterpieces, but above the froth looms "Archangels Thunderbird," an anthem of demented catchiness for the ages.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (9/01, p.134) - Included in Spin's "5 Essential Krautrock Records" - "...A bluesless Led Zep. This sprawling 1970 masterwork is half ultra-heavy psychedelic riffology, half tender, rambling improv."
    Q (Magazine) (p.141) - "[A] double album brimming with ideas and influences from free jazz to Pink Floyd, occasionally endowed with a hard-rock punch..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.153) - "[T]hey stretch out with trippy improvisations featuring walls of feedback and largely intuitive time-changes."
