4 stars Neu! '75 isn't as cold or claustrophobic as their initial LP - but in many ways this is a lot better. Benefitting from a higher standard of production and a sound that is far more slick.

The album holds a certain atmosphere throughout and I'm reminded at times of Joy Division and and Cabaret Voltaire lurking in the dark.

Neu! maintain that trademark, unwavering 4/4 drum beat - which is quite hypnotic; like riding on a train. Neu! created simplistic straightforward albums which were strangely engaging, mechanical and very Central European in sound. It all makes you wonder how Kraftwerk would have sounded if Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother had remained on board.

There's quite a few similarities with 'Harmonia's - Deluxe' album released during the same year.

Oh - and Is it just coincidence that there's a track here called 'Hero', taking in to consideration Bowie's admiration of Neu! ? I think not.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
