4 stars The self-titled debut release by modern krautrockers Lüger is a fantastic amalgamation of obvious influence from previous popular krautrock groups, such as Can, Amon Düül II, and Faust. I particularly get a strong Faust impression from the sounds of the electronics used on this recording, but a strong Neu! impression from the great energy. Occasionally, the music gives off a Jefferson Airplane feel, but not too often.

Because this album is modern, and has been recorded on more sophisticated equipment, this album initially felt much heavier than the earlier krautrock, giving off kind of a krautrock meets '90s Seattle grunge sound. But really, this album is very much spot-on with the early krautrock sound. The electronic wails mix fantastically with the slightly-punk attitude and percussive energy. This album, like others in the krautrock genre, is loud and noisy, but it all comes together and is a great delight.

This group is fantastic and young, and I definitely hope to hear more from them in the future. Even though this album is a great example of modern krautrock and most likely will be enjoyable to fans of the genre, I see great potential in ability to really draw out more experimental sounds on later releases. This free download is very highly recommended.
