4 stars I've had this album for a while now, ever since the band released it as a free download. I've listened to it a good amount of times since getting it, and I'm really impressed with what they've done here. This album is Lüger's debut, and it's a very good debut at that. The album is strongly influenced by some of the Krautrock greats (Neu!, Faust and Can especially come to mind). The album has a good thick sound to it. Sometimes it gets to have a good dirty sound, sometimes it sounds cleaner, sometimes it's somewhere in the middle. There isn't anything really bad about the album, but it does have a couple drawbacks; sometimes, the vocals get nearly completely buried underneath the instrumentals, and sometimes the instrumental sound is just a bit too muddy for my taste. Nothing too major, though. Several of the tracks here are excellent, and the rest all fall in the "good to great" range. My favorites would have to be "Swastika Sweetheart", "Why Should I Care?", "Portrait of a Distant Look", and to a slightly lesser degree "La Fin Absolue du Monde".

If you're a fan of psychedelic/space rock or Krautrock (or both!) you should definitely check this one out. It's a solid debut by a band who will hopefully keep making more strong albums. Four stars!
