4 stars It beats me why I find this more appealing than 'Neu'. Both are similar, that's beyond doubt. This just seems to have a bit more life and enthusiasm about it and the vocals are a welcome addition, particularly during the first 13 minute track where Klaus Dinger sings his abbreviated lyrics quite nicely. Although, the only lyric present appears to be 'Düsseldorf'.

The motoric, repetitive drums are still present, but I'm far happier listening to this than 'Neu'. Maybe its the Brian Eno 'Taking Tiger Mountain' type of synths?

This album sounds less dated and more exuberant than most Kraut albums from the same period, probably due to the robotic drums and tastefully used guitars.

Take away the drums and this would sound very much like 'Harmonia'. Recommended to fans of Bowie's Berlin trilogy.

Very Germanic and surprisingly uplifting.

Dobermensch | 4/5 |
