4 stars Make the Bitch Go Home

Putting Faust on the HI-FI, I dont think you have to tell the bitch to go home, she will ! Faust will make the bitch go.

Anyway 'Tell The Bitch To Go Home' is the opener title, post punk, minimalistic, garage, instrumental rock track, with an intense level of noise, hard, uncompromising, yet catchy.

After that, the album becomes less aggressive, less rock, mixtures of endless sounds, rhythm, and noise. In a brutal, dirty production. Krautish Industrial Space Rock. No clear melodic structure appears in most of the sections, this is def. avantgarde music. Spoken words ads to the drama, strange, scary, but interesting and beautiful at the same time. On Track 5, 'Lost The Signal' second major change appears. English multi artist Geraldine Swayne sings a fine vocal, on a long, more melodic track. Krautacid In a 60's early 70's tradition, not unlike what the Doors did on their longer tracks, or Velvet Underground, a bit later another shorter vocal by Geraldine appears on the album.

Experimental noise Kraut spiced with some melodic songs, and a few 'rock' tracks, Faust delivers what I was expecting on a solid album.
