McLatchey's Top Tier #2

Here is the second album by Amon Duul II, Yeti. First, this is as flawless a double album as you can find. Second this is a very heavy record, I'm always surprised it doesn't come up in discussions over the heaviest rock record. Third this has some of the finest pure guitar riffs ever created, "Eye Shaking King" and "Archangels Thunderbird" just to name two. Love the cover. Love how after the first two sides it flows into a really long, cosmic improvisation almost like your feet just left the cliff. I love Phallus Dei and Dance of the Lemmings as well, but this one I think is their crowning achievement. And there's really no singer out there like Renate...
