4 stars Neu! is the band Neu!'s debut. A very charming performance here, a really dandy. Not a masterpiece but good overall.

HalloGallo is my favorite tune here, with its driving guitars and drums. A perfect driving track, I must say I had a good time when I was in the car listening to the car. Slightly falling short of Opeth's Damnation as good driving music or the grinding guitars of a Death Metal band, but relatively fair. Overall, the album mixes into a complete whole, not to blame them or anything, it sounds smoothly and transitions well, into a complete, full whole with Hallogallo being the start of it all, really the good, memorable part of the album.

As many of you from the Progarchives forums can read, I am mostly a fan of Symphonic Progressive Rock, Progressive Metal and Metal in general, and Neu! are a band that is commonly not assoicated with me on the Archives. In general, the best way to state Neu! is that they are a German krautrock band, one that is filled with interesting, unique sounds that I just recently have started to appreciate (Neu! anyways). So I decided to pick up this album at the local store and throw it into my car stereo and boom, the album came alive to me, almost like it was an interesting sort of feeling you get in your stomach when you listen to a good album. The album is fairly decent, with a hint of a lot of styles and I must say, this is the best Neu! album that is there is out there, its filled with interesting material and the almost entirely instrumental album serves a good purpose in my music collection, even though, its not really my style or anything. 3.75 stars really, but rounded up to 4 stars, because of the ease in musical changes and the experimentation definitely is very good. Definitely recommended for beginners of Krautrock and Progressive listeners, even though its not atruly amazing performance.
