2 stars Hallogallo - the drum beat really drives this song.... around in circles, for 10 solid minutes! Sonderangebot - space rock that never gets to the rock, skip it and run your finger around the edge of a symbol for 5 minutes Weissensee - a slow build, into a slow build, then something small happens around the 4 min mark, then back into a slow build, then the song fades out Im Gluck - gurgling water and chatter, low whaaawhaaaa of guitar, more gurgling Negativland - a jackhammer!? what's that, an air raid siren? at least I'm awake again. Hey, a bit of a jam here, oh wait, it just keeps repeating itself like every other track but with more bizaar distortion in the background. At, 4 min they speed up the repetition a bit, then back down again at about 5:30. Ear piercing sound at 8 min followed by a fast driving repetitive beat with some guitar noodling over it. Lieber Honig - Slow, nice melody, ok a song! Are you alright, did someone punch you in the stomach before you started singing? That's fine, I can dig the nice soft emotional display. STarting to get really sleepy again with the water coming back in, losing will to soldier on.........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

What is everyone seeing in this album? Why does it carry a rating over 4? It isn't that it is bad music it is that nothing ever happens! This is a lump of repetitive beats, slow moving sections of sound effects, and some occasional decent guitar noodling. This is the very definition of collectors/fans only because I cannot see this having any broad appeal to listens who aren't already into this type of yawn fest. Have to believe that fanboy driven reviewing is carrying this album.
