I was a huge NE fan dating back to That Total Age and So Bright, So Strong. In other words, i was a fan way before they toured with Depeche Mode, and while i don't care much for DM, i have always thought Nitzer Ebb created some timeless, classic industrial music up until they sold out with Ebbhead and Big Hit. And even those and other later works were still decent. What i really truly missed however was to be able to get back to the roots of their earlier, minimalistic, driving, adrenalin pumping, fierce chanting style. Now, finally, a time capsule has been opened, and we have the rare treat to hear Nitzer Ebb when they were just barely becoming known, predating even So Bright, So Strong. The recording quality and complexity is more stripped down for sure (much like So Bright, So Strong) but that is what makes it so authentic and classic. There is also a concert on the CD in addition to the 8 studio songs. If you are an old school Ebbhead then you MUST add this to your collection. Enjoy and be grateful!
