"Having nothing new to say about such a landmark watershed of an album, I wasn't going to write a review. How can one even put into words the texture and scope of this album; it writhes and coasts through a tunnel of electricity, the signature Motorik beat behind. A longer introduction to Krautrock need not be given. "Hallogallo" (itself meaning "Hallmark") encapsulates the sound of Klaus Dinger & Co. with its 4/4 backing rhythm and mellowed synths and guitar dub. This is a ten minute track that is ever growing.
"Weissensee" is a calm, sometimes brooding soundscape, very linear with small psychedelic touches. "Im Gluck" ("Lucky") never dreams too much further than its low, ambient drone, from beginning to end it is pulsing. A small swell of guitar is heard and it represents the "mu", the nothing. But yet, it is something.
"Negativland" is another well known piece, itself giving name to another krautrock influenced group. It plods along with phased guitar lines and a throbbing pulse in its bassline.
This album is beyond words, beyond improvisation, beyond thought. It needs to be listened to. It is a timeless work of experimentation inside the Afro-American aesthetic set up by rock music two decades preceding. For ANY fan of classic rock, this is a must hear."
