The First encounter Tour, eclectic and expansive.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My knowledge of this band comes from the work they have done with Brian Eno, "After the Heat", Cluster and Eno, "Begegnungen I, and Begegnungen II, to name a few. Cluster a band made up of the ground breaking electronic duo from Germany, Hans Joachim Roedelius & Dieter Moebius. This pair have never toured the U.S., this being the first I was thrilled to hear of this recording. Also performing with Cluster are the Brain and Bond Bergland, although I've heard of these two, I am not familiar with their work. This is a two CD set with each CD holding more than 75 minute of music each. The music ranges from Quiet background sounds to hardedged distorted guitar, with a little industrial thrown in. This music can be dream like or memory enhancing. Sit back and become one with the music, taking your own history along for the ride, with recollections of past and future, the dark and brooding, and the hopeful and inspiring. These disks contain it all. The electronic expertise, with the subtleties that come with maturity can be heard and seen in these performances. I have never been to a musical performance of this style of music, but with Roedelius currently touring the U.S. and Canada, I will find out first hand the power of the player."

"Founding members of the long-running German ensemble Hans Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius had apparently reunited for their first and maybe what'll be their only ever tour of the states in fall,1996.I've never seen a band/CD that doesn't have titles for their songs,but instead lists their tunes by the track's running time.Very original.I really enjoyed checking out,on disc one cuts no. 3 and 4.On disc two,things do seem to liven up a bit.A total of 2 hours and 15 minutes of revived krautrock,that MOST of the release's material was probably originally done in the '70's.Should appeal to fans of Tangerine Dream,Can,Eno and Neu!"
