PROG REVIEWER
4 stars A wonderful album that manages to sound a little like Cluster (no surprise, with Moebius and Roedelius on hand), Neu! (member Michael Rother is on board), and even Kraftwerk and Can (hey, it's Germany, after all). It's interesting to hear musicians with a predominantly instrumental background throw some vocals into the mix, along with a sense of humor. I'd have to say that the participants were at their respective creative peaks right about this time. Michael Rother's first few solo albums and Moebius and Plank's "Rastakraut Pasta" and "Material" came out about the same time, and all are among my favorite Krautrock releases. Interesting textures, rhythms and melodies abound, and the sound quality is clear and crisp, unlike Harmonia's debut and some of Cluster's albums.

3 stars I was first very impatient to listen to this album. Unfortunately after several listenings I've found a certain deception. "Deluxe" is claimed to be Harmonia's absolutely best effort, well, what can I say? I mainly see it as a vague collection of electronic pre-ambient collages, including a poor pop, commercial orientation into it. The main title is an energic but "cheap" electronic manifestation with simplistic melodies and vocals. "Walky takly" is a cohesive ambient electronic "trip" with an obsessional rhythm and some gentle, floating electric guitar parts made by Michael Rother. This composition has a nice "evasion" felt that can remindS some Rother's materials in solo. The synth parts are terribly "kitsch" and sounds near to Roedelius' minimal-electronic works in solo. "Monza" is the rockiest tune of the album, mixing arch guitar sounds to the machines. Not bad. "Notre Dame" is a poor melodic electro attempt. "Gollum" is a typical ambient, floating piece with spacious synth lines and enchanting, delicate atmospheres. A rather sunny and aestival minimal-abstract electronic work...the atmosphere tends to be pleasant, easy to digest after all. In the spirit I prefer by far the weird, textural & dark improvised imagery of "musik von". A nice and recommended listening for fans of Eno & Cluster collective work.

2 stars A some sort of a classic pre-Ambient album from the 70's German electronic scene, featuring the (yet to be-) CLUSTER duo Roedelius & Moebius, who later caught Brian ENO's interest and worked with him. There must have been influence going both ways between them; one can hear some ENO-ish atmosphere even in the intendedly monotonous vocals on two tracks. Harmonia's third member was multi-instrumentalist Michael Rother, and for this album they invited GURU GURU drummer Mani Neumeier.

The nature of this music is floating, atmospheric, poppy, naiive, sunny and hilarious. Listened today, it sounds rather dated and somehow toyish, or "cheap", in synths. I guess that those who listened to it - or the music of this scene in general - already three decades ago, will enjoy this with warm nostalgia. But for newcomers I don't think it makes a big impression. Maybe the best tracks are in the end, the ones with shorter length. 'Kekse' (does it mean Biscuits perhaps?) ends nicely with sounds from a duck pond and a charming piano melody.

For the connoisseurs this album probably has a notable value, but two stars will be enough from me.

Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
3 stars Second (and last) Harmonia album and released in 75 on the green Brain label, Harmonia represents the living passerelle between Cluster and Kraftwerk. It's indeed hard to believe these three projects did not "compete" in some way, shape or form, because their respective electro-pop is not only fairly close to each other, but also influenced the music scene a half-decade later in the early 80's during the new wave era.

As said above, this album is sometimes closer Kraftwrk (and involuntarily Vangelis in the title track) in the two lengthy tracks on the A-side of the album. Although there is mych repetitive and a certain form of minimalism, these two tracks are probably the highlight of the album. Indeed, on the flipside, the three shorter tracks are a combination of Vangelis meets Tangerine Dream on sleeping tablets and don't bring much interesting except that again, they're a few years ahead of the pack. But definitely more interesting is that Harmonia's Can and Neu! influences are also perceptible , for example in Monza (the racetrack), the longer (7-mins) track of the flipside is rawer and more aggressive.

This album has been re-issued by Brain in a brilliant digipak with pictures of their studio-in-a-mansion and a few more pics of the original back sleeve with the tacky parasol, but also plenty of texts about the group.

Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is HARMONIA's second album and they've added the legendary Mani Neumeie (GURU GURU) on drums. We still have the duo (Moebius & Roedelius) from CLUSTER as well as Michael Rother from NEU !. I'm a big fan of the three bands represented here, but this is quite different from them all. I'll quote the liner notes. "What they were creating was unheard of music that remained unparalleled, something which they owed to their own special way of combining acoustic, electronic and electro-acoustic instruments,to the imaginative and sometimes some sort of transcendent way of using their studio equipment as well as to the natural discipline they used to display during the recordings.There was no cosmic wafting, but cool and sober electronics, no brutal rhythms but easy going drums and flowing patterns. Roedelius's dreamy keyboards tunes, Moebius's skilful use of the synthesizers and the Nagoya harp and Rother's unmistakable guitar sound were virtues that could hardly merge in a better way than they did on this HARMONIA album".

The compositions on this album were more complex than they were on the debut yet there is this charm about this recording that can't be missed. "Deluxe (Immer Wieder)" is such a great track. It just sounds so good early on with those spacey sounds then we get sort of a mechanical sounding beat as vocals come in. Guitar sounds come and go. This is catchy until after 4 minutes when it settles right down. Vocals are back 8 minutes in after a long break. "Walky-Talky" is led by what sounds like percussion, drums and various electronics.

"Monza (Rauf Und Runter)" is spacey to open. It stops after 1 1/2 minutes then the guitar sound signals a change as a catchy beat with vocals comes in. This is fun. "Notre Dame" opens with organ sounds as a beat joins in. It settles before 1 1/2 minutes and turns spacey. Contrasts continue. "Gollum" sounds silly to open but the melancholic synths a minute in and later after 2 minutes are very good. "Kekse" sounds so simple for the first 4 1/2 minutes then it changes for the final minute to an experimental soundscape.

I do know people who rave about this release despite the poor ratings on this site, and I have to join in on their praise.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars The process of recording Neu! 75 was characterised by sharp disagreements over musical direction. These seem to have left a bad taste in Michael Rother's mouth which persisted to the recording of this second Harmonium album, which adds Mani Neumeier from Guru Guru to provide compelling motorik drumming but fails to provide him (or any of the other instrumentalists) with any really compelling compositions to get their teeth into. Failing to reach the standards of its predecessor, the album at points (particularly when the vocals creep in) reminds me of an inferior attempt at the sort of ambient rock that Brian Eno had perfected on Another Green World at around the same time. Not the finest hour of Cluster, Rother, or Neumeier to be honest.

5 stars How can an album like Harmonia Deluxe, which I consider one of the ultimate Krautrock album, be classified in Progressive Electronic, is beyond me !?! For me, there is 2 type of Krautrock, one organic, like Can, Popol Vuh & Amon Dl and the other, electronic like Clauster, Neu! & this band, H ... (read more)
