Dreamscapes Galore! 3 Oct. 2005
By Ralph Quirino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fans of Can, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno's more ambient experiments and Neu! are hereby pointed to this great anthology of 15 selections culled from the Brain label out of Germany. All of it recorded at a time when invention and experimentation were de rigeur. The German school of progressive rock has been ignored for too long, overshadowed by Brit acts like ELP and Yes. This set redresses the wrong and shows that "krautrock" boasted exceptional talents and memorable performances. It shows that "prog" was far more than just farting around aimlessly in studios on endless jams with an array of synths. Every selection here has something fresh and mind-tripping about it. Each one painting great landscapes that appear alien and "tribal" in some ancient, "Atlantis"-like way. Key acts: Harmonia, Faust, Jane, Epitaph, Scorpions (pre Michael Schenker), Os Mundi, Novalis, Guru Guru, Cluster and Embryo (among others). A great booklet provides brief liner notes for every song included (and LP art for the original album the selection was culled from). In short, if you're a progressive rock fan, this is a definite "gotta have it". Label: Universal Germany. Cat # 06024 982835-2. Release date: 2005. All selections superbly remastered.

KRAUTROCK by BRAIN, for Brains. 3 July 2009
By W. T. Hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
BRAIN was a Hamburg centered record company, that had at some point signed many of the "anglophile" rock bands from Northern BDR in the 1970s, or a record or two by other bands like Embryo, that signed to other record companies. Nobody has given a complete set list of this "Krautrock" anthology, so heres a quick look.
1. NOVALIS--Sonnengeflect
2. HARMONIA--Dino
3. OS MUNDI --Isn't it Beautiful
4. SPERRMUELL--No Freak Out
5. SCORPIONS--Inheritance
6. EPITAPH--Visions
7. EMBRYO--Radio Marrakesh
8. ELECTRIC SAMWICH--China
9. FAUST--So Far
10. CLUSTER--Heisse Lippe
11. GURU GURU--Electrolurch
12. KIN PING MEH--Everything
13. JANE--Scratches on Back
14. Yatha Sidhra--Meditation Mass
15. EROC--Nebelwelt
_________________________________________________________________
My big disappointment with this set list, is the SCORPIONS song, even tho it isnt quite the heavy metal band that became famous later, its certainly NOT Krautrock. For that matter, its a matter of debate whether or not JANE is Krautrock too. They sound like a typical 70s heavy rock band. And Sperrmuell is barely "krautrock". At least they put the best song from the album on this compilation. But, the rest of the album is amazing. SONNENGEFLECT by NOVALIS, is a beautiful song, from their second album. DINO by Harmonia is also one of their very best songs, and a personal favorite of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. "Isnt it Beautiful", is the best song off the OS MUNDI album. I dont care for the Scorpions, and the EPITAPH song really never made an impression on me. RADIO MARRAKESH is the best song from the same titled album by EMBRYO, and this CD's longest song. It's jazz rock, with lots of arabic world music overtones. So, is this Krautrock? Like any GOOD retrospective on a musical movement, you find out that plurality of styles is normal. If all KRAUTROCK sounded like AUTOBAUN, or some TANG DREAM or CAN song, it would hardly be a musical movement. Next is a Single version of CHINA, by Electric Samwhich-- your basic PROG ROCK band sound. Then, you start with the BIG NAMES in Krautrock: FAUST's "So Far" is the title song from their second album, and a real classic. HEISSE LIPPE (Hot Lips) is from "ZUCKERZEIT", when Cluster started to sound a bit less Kosmische, and moved into 3-4 minute songs. ELECTROLURCH is the best song from Guru Guru's 4th album, and a concert staple for that band. Kin Ping Meh's "EVERYTHING" is another obscure band, and obscure song, but has a nice prog vibe to it. JANE was a major band from West Germany in the 70s, but just a hard rock band, that is Krautrock only from its nationality, rather than its style. Meditation Mass (part 2) by YATHA SIDHRA is cool music, part of an album related to that world music/Indian sound and philosophy. ITs a Kosmische sound, with drums, flutes, bass, guitar, and lots of synth, moog, and vocals. What i dont understand, is that instead of putting GROBSCHNITT on the CD, they put a song by Grobschnitt's drummer (EROC II), called NEBELWELT. Its sung in german, spacey, and almost maudlin in its yearning for childhood innocence. So overall, does the CD have enough good songs to shell out the money for it? Out of the 15 songs, only 2-3 of them I didnt enjoy. For an mid level overview of BDR bands popular in the 1970s, its not a bad purchase at all. Just dont be surprised at the differences in style from one song to another.

'Krautrock' - Various Artists (Universal) 11 Nov. 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fifteen tracks, one each by some rather obscure/lesser known kraut bands like Yatha Sidra,Sperrmull and Novalis. Then, of course you have several of the better known acts like Harmonia, Embryo, Faust, Guru Guru and Jane. Musically speaking, the CD is a bit uneven I thought. But, still a decent introduction to this genre to any newcomers. Sound quality is great, apparently these cuts have all been remastered from the original tapes, so says the informative booklet.
