      Enjoyable

      Yeti is Amon Duul II's 2nd album, released in 1970, it is surprisingly heavier than the previous more trippy album "Phallus Dei", this album retains the psychedelic sound of the first but several of the tracks have livelier guitar riffs in a mid to late 60s garage style which are then eased by more progressive parts in the vein of Santana. The track Archangels Thunderbid almost borders on all out rock n roll, it's pretty heavy for a bunch of hippies!

      The female vocals do a good job of sounding haunted or mad but the male's dramatical voice is just an utter row (you'd have thought England had lost 5-1 Germany again the way he's carrying on). A track like "She Came Through the Chimney" sounds like an oriental alien clawing it's way in to your living room with a bag of mosquitoes and a gramophone playing a pre-war time song, it's bizarre to say in the least.

      I like the album overall, they are pretty experimental and the tracks they have created have an aura about them that seems to have a lot of character, the styles move quickly enough to keep you on your toes. On the other hand, I'm not really endeared to either vocalist and I think they are a weak point of the band.
