Prog Reviewer
4 stars From the avant-garde end of Krautrock, Neu!'s first album combines pulsing, hypnotic rhythms with moments of spacey drifting. Vocals here and there on the album in a strange, strangled voice emphasise that this is no ordinary Krautrock album - Dinger and Rother have stated that the whole point of Neu! was to explore musical possibilities that they felt their compatriots in the German cosmic rock scene were neglecting - so fans of the likes of Amon Duul II, Tangerine Dream or Ash Ra Tempel may find the material here isn't necessarily to their liking, though I suspect many will enjoy it on the strength of its successful experimental approach and the unique atmospheres evoked. A great start to the band.
Warthur | 4/5 |
