2 stars 2.5 stars really!!

Another offshoot from half of Cluster, Dieter Moebius, this time with production Kaiser Conny Plank in the latter's most essential studio in the outskirts of Cologne. The third "stooge" happens to be Holger Czuckay and his bass on three of the nine tracks, ranging from 1:30 to 7 minutes. Coming with a bland toothpaste artwork, this album was released in 79, which is rather late for pure Krautrock release, but as the first part of the title, the music is a bit up to date, since there is the odd track featuring a reggae beat.

Despite a seemingly binary bass line that could've been Czuckay's , the opening track News has a hypnotizing seemingly square drumming beat made from electronic doodles, courtesy of Dieter, as is that aforementioned bass. Guitar death throes and piano cords gratings and echoes are also audible. The title track is a weird reggae beat on a binary beat, and you'll find a variation of the same in Missi Cacadou. Other tracks can vary soundwise from Tangerine Dreams to the electro-pop of Kraftwerk or some Cluster (Zuckerzeit). I wouldn't call this album essential or even worth the detour, but if you're into the stranger facets of Krautrock, this album could make you happy.
