Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Luke Haines' career has always been one that has been suitably contrary- when they could have turned into a Suede-style-pre-Britpop-act they did a record with u-Ziq. At the height of Britpop Haines opted to make an album with Steve Albini featuring such joyful tracks as 'Unsolved Child Murder' & 'Light Aircraft on Fire.' The one-off, thirty-one-minute long album by 'Baader Meinhof' was amusingly released at the height of all the futile-self-celebration that nonsense like Oasis at Knebworth & the burgeoning mass-popularity of the meaningless Spice Girls.
It could be seen as being in bad taste (a few journos plumped for a 'National Front Disco'/'Satanic Verses' style reaction)- then again, the world of rockandroll has always been happy to nod to the nazis (Siouxsie Sioux, Keith Moon, Throbbing Gristle- I'm not saying whether they were right or wrong) and The Clash nodded to the Red Army Faction (R.A.F.), while Julian Cope wrote some songs during The Teardrop Explodes called 'Stannheim' & 'Like Leila Khaled Said.' Haines isn't celebrating the RAF/Baader-Meinhof - but attempts to write an album, which is kind of pop and certainly leads to what he did with Black Box Recorder, that isn't a bunch of love-songs. The 1970s seemed to be a preoccupation, and returned on The Auteurs' album 'How I Learned to Love the Bootboys' (e.g. 'Future Generation', 'The Rubettes' a few years later. Haines approach to the BM-story is more like a cut-up/novel approach- we're not sure whose POV the song is from and there are several tracks I couldn't really tell you much about...

This album is the distilled genius of Luke Haines. I personally don't think that any of his other work matches up to this amazing album. The Auteurs and Black Box Recorder, his solo works and others all have standout tracks, but none present such a cohesive unity of vision and delivery as Baader Meinhof.

My mate bought this album when it was 1st released off the back of the stonking 2nd Auteurs LP and hated it immediately. I've only just managed to get him to lend it to me and I can see why. It's not pretty. I can only describe it as a kind of art school funk album about terrorism. When you get over the initial shock, though, it really starts to get under your skin. It only lasts half an hour and so you end up playing twice in a row just to get your fix. The instrumentation is simple but bold and compliments the rhetorical style of the lyrics really well. I can't imagine Haines' reasoning behind the project other than to perplex and annoy the complacent music industry but it only goes to re-inforce how important a talent he is.

A typical Luke Haines (Auteurs/Black Box Recorder) offering. He gets onto a particular theme (this time it's seventies terroism) and builds an album around it.
Obviously, it's not for everyone, but if you like his other stuff, this is a good album and definitely the equal of the auteurs albums. LH gets more good moments in a 40 min record than most bands do in an hour's worth.

Review Correction 28 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although the intent of the Amazon reviewer is in the right place, his lyrical analysis is a bit off. "Happy Birthday Anna, you're 29 years old" is not a reference to a delusinal terrorist, but the actual inscription on the cake of a flight attendant during the notorious Mogadishu hi-jacking.

Better than recent material by The Auteurs 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Finally, singer/songwriter Luke Haines has found a good reason to sound angry. I never beleived he was as p****d as he pretended to be on The Auteurs 3rd album, After Murder Park, especially considering how lighthearted and whimsical those first two Auteurs albums were. With Baader Meinhoff, however, skilled songwriter Haines has some concrete subject matter to sink his teeth into. The songs, roughly based on that infamous German terrorist organization, are downright creepy. The use of traditional Middle-Eastern instrumentation combined with electric guitar, funky keyboards, and raspy vocals make this a wonderfully disturbing rock album.

Electro-funk about 70s terrorism - nice! 17 July 2005
By alexliamw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Luke Haines got a name for himself with his albums with the Auteurs, this record is totally distinct in its sound. While containing Haines' usual malevolence, here it is surrounded by wailing shots of noise, clattering percussion, menacing strings and funked-up bass, combined with buzzing electro synths, all nevertheless very sparse, making the sudden interjections of instruments even more invasive. Although the album milks pretty much the same sound all the way through, it's such an inventive and unique one that this works. Treading the line with his lyrics about terrorism between mocking and almost condoning, it's Haines at his most provocative.

Every track is consistent, with strong melodies and lyrics, but the album's highlight is probably 'There's Gonna Be An Accident', which is the closest the album gets to an upbeat, accessible track, with its groove-based sound and menacing lyrics ('driving around on vodka and aspirin/you're gonna wake up in casualty'). Also excellent are both versions of the title track: the first angular and disjointed, the second more rhythmic and acoustic; the brief but incendiary 'Burn Warehouse Burn', and the interesting 'Back On The Farm', which shifts finds a strange wistfulness in its aching chord progression without losing any of the album's trademark intensity. The lyrical references are all incredibly obscure, but you have to hand it to Haines: it's pretty clever, as total provocatism goes.

Best album of the last seven years 18 Aug 2004
By Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the my album of the year when it came out in '97. Now, seven years later, it's equally as impressive. In fact, it might just be the best album of the last seven years. It's both sinister and seductive, and that tension makes it utterly listenable.

Not everyone's taste -- thankfully! 16 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Twisted, dark but brilliant. Most people will hate this but its a damn fine record. Not as good as an Auteurs record, but good nevertheless.
