4 stars Neu!'s debut album is another cornerstone in Krautrock history! At the time of release of this album, all I could think of was link it with some of the strangest music ever , but a few years later, I discovered Can and saw where Neu! got their inspiration from!

The first side is made of three relatively calm tracks ( almost in the ambient style ), gradually picking up speed and strenght on Weissensee. But the real Neu! (pronounce noļ) feeling starts at the second side of that vinyl. On those three tracks , this duo shows that they have nothing to envy to Can , using long and minimalist music to great effect, but also hinting at later Kraftwerk albums (Dinger hqving collaborated on a few of their album)

Unfortunately , this is the only really worthy Neu! album as the successor is very flawed ( in spiteof a superb sidelong track) and the third although highly rated , not having much to do with this album as far as feeling is concerned.
