5 stars It took me awhile to realise that I should listen to this, but now I have and the stars should tell you what I think of Electric Orange's "tenth" outing. I had listened to "Platte" in the past and loved it, so my lack of awareness of this 2014 release - up to not listening to my raving fellow reviewers - was rather foolish. None of that matters now, as I now know that the Orange is the uppermost of the various and varied krautrock revivalists. "Suite Beef" is a crystalline example of their ability to forge great soundscapes, sounding like a beautiful dark orange haze. The other two exceptionally long tracks, "Behind The Wall of Sheep" (har har) and "Worn Utopia" are alongside it the best tracks. It is, yes, a dour record, with the result being that their ethereal backgrounds, killer guitar work, and various other instruments and influences come to together into a magnificent and unique album. And I have to agree with Guldbamsen: Electric Orange have truly put themselves into the shoes of the early '70's in West Germany, actually sounding like a krautrock band of old. I just relisten to this record again and again, and I have yet to stop chuckling whenever I read "A Tuna Sunrise" *chortle*chortle*chortle*. Here is a future for krautrock, and you will enjoy listening to this "Shape of Kraut To Come".
