From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

1 stars This record has a great gimmick, its transparent and so is the cover it also features a skeletal hand. If this was a cover and art work site this record would score very highly. However this is a music review site and this record is just awful. This is not up to the standard of Nue or Can , or even Birth Control. I suppose it is closer to one of Throbbing Gristle's less essential live albums than anything else. It is a collection of noises rather than a progressive music recording. If Faust's output consisted of just this record they would have been forgotten long ago. It sounds like the work of fakers rather than the work of artists. It has all of the charm of a bad live punk rock band but without the beat. Those few who claim this record is a classic are so out of touch with reality that I would question their sanity. This is not a great record by any stretch of the imagination. It may appeal to those who think banging a few milk bottles or mixing a few noises together amounts to music. Its a lazy exercise in pretentiousness. Yes this is an experimental recording but its an experiment that doesnt work. Seriously if you must try the music of Faust buy the far better Faust tapes to start with. I suppose if you see the vinyl going cheap (some hope) you might want to buy it for its excellent cover art work. However this is not a record in any sense of the word it is the work of crooks and con men.
