4 stars This album is very good. Quite excellent, in fact. And it's Faust !! When I first heard some of their earlier material, I swore off this band (like Neu!) - I certainly didn't want noise at that point in time - I loved what Can were doing, but there is a limit. Curiosity got the better of me when I selected this title in a stack of new vinyl I purchased on one of my sprees. All I can say is what a surprise this turned out to be ! Classic Krautrock (of the highest order) and, at least to me, sounds like it could've been composed in the 70's, and recorded in the 90's. Very clean production (when it's clean), very distorted (when it's Krauty). Lots of tracks on the album, from glorious, rumbling drones, to musique concrete, chaotic little links, and even some hazy and (ocassional) poignant melodies. The big track 'Na Sowas' 14min31, is quite relentless and noisy during its first half, then after a quiet interlude, morphs into a fuzzy drone - it doesn't seem to annoy these ears like the early stuff I remember. Jean-Herve Peron really is a good Bassist, Hans- Joachim Irmler plays some vintage sounding organs and synths, and Zappi Diermaier is a machine on the drum-kit. Some trumpet and tuba can be heard but I couldn't say who plays it. Very much in-line with the early work of Can and Kraftwerk. 4 Stars.
