Michael Rother (half of the influential Krautrock group Neu!, and earlier, a founding member of Kraftwerk) recorded this first solo album with producer Conny Plank in 1976. Rother's signature guitar sound, the mechanical percussion (Jaki Leibezeit of Can) and the simple yet outerwordly anthemic melodies make Flammende Herzen an outstanding and visionary record. Contains new detailed liner notes.
In a word,FANTASTIC

"After reading the sole review for this release,I felt compelled to add my own.In a word,this is fantastic as are all of the artists first four solo releases.Though I can completely respect the other reviewers preference to the artists previous contributions (Harmonia/Neu/Kraftwerk),to dismiss this as "New Age" just isnt quite fair.I as well absolutely love Rother's work for those aforementioned projects,but his solo work definitely stands on its own.The motorik beats are here,punctuated by Michael's soaring,expressive guitar lines.No,not quite as experimental as Harmonia,nor as abrasive as Neu!, Or as electronic as Kraftwerk but dare I say more heart-felt,emotional and maybe even more... Mature? In any event,this is in no way like the cheesy pre-programmed dreck found in a lot of what's labeled "New Age"."

"Repetitive melancholic high-class kitsch. But played all with instruments. Feuerland is really classy, even matches Kraftwerk in it's intensity. And darkness. Outstanding in it's approach to music, especially for the die-hard 70's rarities collectionners. It's poisoned caramel. You won't get any cultier."
