5 stars After the poor sales of Faust's rather caustic debut, producer Uwe Nettlebeck and Faust returned to their studio known as the Wumme to record "So Far" with the intent on recording a slightly more accessible offering. While this is far more accessible than their debut, this is hardily pop rock and roll. The album opens with the amazingly catchy and possibly Faust's most well known track "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl," which can best be described as seven minutes of trance inducing bliss. "On The Way To Abamae" shows a more gentle, melodic side of Faust, while "No Harm," "I've Got My Car and My TV" and the title track rock on in a rather dadaistic manner. While Faust can be thought as quite disturbing, if you listen to the album closely you'll see that the band actually has quite a sense of humor. Faust's "So Far" is truly a masterpiece and is a far more significant artistic statement than most of the so called progressive dinosaurs could ever dream to produce.
