1 stars I don`t know if it`s fair to write a review about an album that I heard almost 20 years ago. But I`m writing this. In 1985 I was playing in a band which had 8 members (!), and the keyboard player, who is still playing in bands since then, lent me several albums of some bands/artists: Return to Forever, Vangelis, Banco, Peter Gabriel, Faust, The Dregs, and other albums that I don`t remember now.I liked some of those albums and I recorded them in cassettes, and I recorded some songs of the albums that I didn`t like very much in one cassette only. FAUST was one of the bands that I didn`t like very much. I still have the cassette where I recorded the only song which I liked from this "So Far" album: "On the Way to Abamäe", which is an instrumental piece with an acoustic guitar or classical guitar, in the style of Steve Howe or Steve Hackett, with an organ in the background. It is a sad song but it is very good. I remember that the rest of the music in this album is noisy, sometimes funny, with some funny lyrics, but not very interesting musically.Maybe the best memory that I have from this album is the cover design: it had the black cover which is included in this website, but it also had a booklet which included the lyrics and some good paintings that illustrated each song. I think that the record I heard was a re- issue of this album which was released by a British label called Recommended Records or something like that. "So Far" is only for the fans of FAUST and this kind of music called Krautrock.
