3 stars After recording a number of excellent early albums under the guise of KRAFTWERK, Klaus Dinger and Michel Rother formed a groundbreaking offshoot art/prog/electronic band respectfully named NEU!. Together they took the sparse electronic sounds of KRAFTWERK and magnified them against some pretty heavy groove rhythms and minimalist melodies... not unlike some of today's top electronica. NEU's music is basic at its core yet manages to create the most vivid and evocative soundscapes. The final result is something that will stimulate your senses vs tranquilize them. Instrumentation is also quite creatively varied here with some pretty trippy moments. Klaus Dinger plays bandoneon, banjo,dDrums, electronics, Farfisa organ, guitar, keyboards, percussion, piano, Plattenspieler, Stimme, vocals while co-collaborator Michael Rother contributes bass, electronics, Geige, guitar, keyboards, percussion, Synclavier and Zither. It appears that the early work of NEU! has retained it memory with today's music scene and is still sited as an influential album on other recording artists. In many ways I guess this album really serves as an introduction (however basic and na´ve) to the ambient electronica genre. Killer stuff...!
