Although Laibach have released over 14 albums (6 of them big sellers here in the States for Mute Records), this, their very first full-length studio recording (plus 2 Bonus Tracks) made in Yugoslavia in 1985 had never been available to their fans here before except as a limited edition hard-to-find and expensive import. Originally issued in Yugoslavia by SKUC (Student Cultural Centre Slovenia) and recorded at the Metro Studio, Slovenia. It has been licensed from their 1st manager, Igor Vidmar, and his Repot Record Co.
For the Completist Only
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Their first full-length release back in '83 or something. Includes vastly inferior and uncompelling versions of Drzhava and Panorama (with a totally pointless, unimpressive high pitched electronic tone in place of the later version's east and west speech), but if you can't get the brilliant 'Rekapitulation 1980-84' CD put out by Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien then get this for the evocative and lesser-known cuts like 'My Brother' (Brat Moj) and 'We are Creating the Future' (Mi Kujemo Bodochnost). I have it (because I'm a completist), but don't listen to it that often."
More sonic, more industrial

"This is a more musical Laibach, Laibach as a contingent of the industrial music trend taking off in Europe in the early '80's. If you like Einstürzende Neubauten's "Strategies against Architecture," you will probably enjoy this cd. "Sredi Bojev" (Battles) and "Brat Moi" (My Brother) especially are rich in sound, even as they evoke the sights and sounds of a steel mill at night. Kinda like "Schwarz" or "Armenia" (from the "Drawings of OT"), two of my favorite Neubautens."
