3 stars ELECTRIC ORANGE is a Neo-Kraut band from Germany led by keyboardist Dirk Jan Muller . They've been around since early 90s, releasing some stuff from time to time, and jammy "Platte" (2003) was their most balanced and enjoyable album, to my taste. "Krautrock from Hell" wears its influences on a sleeve, and sometimes it sounds "almost like -insertKrautrockbandnamehere-": some Damo Sudzuki madness, some ASH RA TEMPEL soundscapes, some AMON DUUL horror atmosphere, some KRAFTWERK loops...I can't accuse ELECTRIC ORANGE in being unoriginal (it's almost impossible to stay original within the genre based on jamming and proto-Electronica soundeffects), but such "collage" approach is a bit too obvious. Anyway, it's a pretty good record, even though a little bit too long
