SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Content Development & Krautrock Team
5 stars This album closes Moebius & Roedelius early radical experimentations in electronic, guitar/organ works. Compositions are always made of repetitive patterns, simple motifs, noisy and cerebral. However it features a better implication in term of "structures". The electronic exercises are shorter, more controlled. The album starts with a spheric music that surronds you, then it introduces a continuous organ line with perpetual static electronic "tones" and guitar's distortion. This tune van evokes the unit of perception. "Im Suden» used a hypnotic electronic bass pulse / guitar patterns to produce hallucinations inside your ears. Gradually it alternates the sound level of each part. Fascinating and visceral "Brain" music. "Fur Die Katz" combines modulating electric sounds with many electronic noises and effects in the background. The atmosphere obtained is very creepy, calibrated for a real discharge of intensity. "Live In Der Fabrik" is made of a repetitive, concentric, duplicated electric sound with a kind of abstract electric bass sound. Very industrial and chaotic. We can also hear modulating frequency harmonies, feedback in the performance space. "Georgel"is a haunted, dark organ work, irrevocably moving to a serie of changing, beating pitches. A sonic meditation, a pleasant cerebral massage. One of the most incredible, stimulating albums I've heard.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars Second album (with their name written with a C or else this would their fourth) from Dieter and H-J, after their superb but adventurous debut. And this album confirms what was developed before and even betters it. But we are still in the domain of early Popol Vuh, Zeit-era Tangerine Dream and the very early Kraftwerk (when those two did not use any synthesisers.

Yes the music is rather destructured music (sometimes resembling Tomita's mid-70's doodlings, no doubt he listened to what the Germans did before him) without melodies, harmonies and even clear rhythm patterns. Generally this kind of music does not sit well with many more conservative music listeners even among the progheads, but the least they can say it that there is something fascinating with this type of music. And this cosmic music is a far cry to what Cluster will do in a few years dishing out a sort of pre-new wave (as would Ralf and Florian of Kraftwerk also. While I personally think that this type of album is always of a certain interest, I can understand those people not getting the subtleties and just wanting to have one of those cosmic records. And the choice would come down between Popol Vuh's Astentude, Tangerine Dream's Zeit or Atem or Cluster's first two. Mine is: z) all of the above. ;-)

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars It's always quite a tricky task to review an album of cosmic drones, spacey atmospheres, twittering electronics and strangely dark music, which is what Krautrock duo Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius - 'Cluster', have created here. To many ears, the compositions on this record may border on nonsensical, noisy, druggy noodling etc. but at least to my ears I hear a certain, organic ambience. The 'music' is a result of many layers of electronics, and 'natural' instruments that have often been 'processed' through various gadgets, and their use of repetitive motifs, swirling organs and distorted sounds really offers a hypnotic listening experience. 'Cluster II' features 'Plas' (6.00), 'Im Suden' (12.50), 'Fur Die Katz' (3.00) on side 1, and 'Live In Der Fabrik' (14.50), 'Georgel' (5.25) 'Nabitte' (2.40) on the 2nd side. The highlight for me is Live In Der Fabrik. As others have stated, this is similar to Zeit-period Tangerine Dream and the first few Kraftwerk records. Undeniably cutting-edge at the time of its release, Cluster II is a fine example of experimental music the way only the German Hippies can do.

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars While not as spacey as their debut 71(I haven't heard anything that is) this is still about this dynamic duo trying to create a mood, an atmosphere,a soundscape for the trip you are about to take. Lets start by turning out the lights and putting on those headphones shall we, because were going on a voyage into deep space.

"Plas" reminds me of the debut with the waves of sound and pulsating electronics that shift and change throughout. "Im Suden" features the same melody(yes I said melody) over and over. It sounds like a guitar actually as other sounds wash in and out. That melody is eventually copied by electronics?. Very cool song.

"Fur Die Katz" has these high pitched noises at first that eventually soften. "Live In Der Fabrik" features strange sounds that come and go as pulsating sounds throb relentlessly. It gets very spacey 11 minutes in. "Georgel" reminds me of their debut record because it's so spacey. Like being in a cosmic wind storm. Incredible soundscape. "Nabitte" sounds like the machinery in some sort of assembly line. Vocal sounds can be heard as well.

My two favourite tracks are "Im Suden" and "Georgel". Highly recommended music if your going to take a long trip. If I had to pick between their first two albums i'd take 71 but it's close.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
3 stars Cluster's second album finds them further exploring the electronic soundscapes from the debut. This is a highly valued album in the progressive electronic scene and as far as it concerns spatial exploration and sonic innovation it certainly deserves its high status.

Plas is an impressive piece. Low droning sounds suck you into the universe's darkest black hole. Layers of dissonant distorted 'who-knows-what-they-are' sounds wave in and out of focus. Heavily processed guitar strumming provides some rhythmic clue but apart from that it's an unsettling listen. No melody, no harmony, no rhythm and no emotion exist in this extraterrestrial space. I'm Süden has a sparse rhythmic pulse provide by 4 repeated guitar notes. They create interesting layers of atmosphere around it.

Für Die Katz' has a well chosen title. This one will be a very unpleasant listening for your cats. The tweeting high electronic effects and unexpected twists are guaranteed to distress the poor animals. Also Live In Der Fabrik remains very experimental and dense. There's not much here that you would normally define as 'music'.

The dissonant organ on Georgel has more appeal and electrifies the atmosphere with creepy tonalities similar to Ligeti's contributions for 2001: Space Odyssey. Nabitte ends the album with some vocal effects and a stark dark pulse. It's a very striking piece that sounds almost zeuhl and is way too short unfortunately.

When it comes to music that is so experimental and abstract as this, the extent to which you might be able to connect to it is very unpredictable. So approach with care, this is an album that is impressive for its artistic attitude, but there's no way predicting the possible enjoyment you will extract from it. Somewhere between intellectually essential and enjoyably good.

Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Cluster's second album is firmly in the vein of spacey, droney, trancelike Krautrock of the era, but is set apart from its competitors by the excellent production work by Conrad Plank, who produced or co-produced all the group's albums - truly a man with a strong claim to be the third member of the band. The band place themselves at an extremely minimalistic and experimental end of the German cosmic rock spectrum, with all of the conventional structures and approaches to composing music being regarded as strictly optional, to be utilised only if the composition absolutely demands it. It's one of the more challenging Krautrock albums, but well worth a listen regardless.

4 stars Dare I say it, I always found Cluster a bit on the dull side, much preferring Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream from the same period. Cluster were always just too minimal for me.
