4.0 out of 5 stars German avant-pop at its finest! 14 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Make no mistake, this is an indie-pop album. If, like me, you are looking for something a bit more leftfield, you might want to reconsider. This is not to discourage though - a very fine indie-pop album it is, with instantly likeable melodies buoyed by constantly imaginative and tight production, laregely informed by electronica. 'One Step Inside' builds on inauspicious acoustic beginnings and builds into subtle layers of crackling electonic fug, underpinned by a wood-block rhythm. 'Pilot' is instantly recognisable, a piece of classic pop charged by a electro rhythm that surges and swoops in all the right places. Other highlights include the avant-pop of 'Trashing Days' and the cut-up violins and breakbeat of 'Solitaire'. Always engaging and accessible - each song is carefully crafted with a whole raft of styles and instruments (from flutes to banjos and neo-drum 'n' bass rhythmic stylings). But the focus tends to rest heavily on the vocals, a kind of Germanic Belle and Sebastien, sometimes a little high up in the mix for comfort. This, the German version, also features three instrumental bonus tracks - but these are more afterthoughts than fully-realised compositions. Like this? Also try labelmates and affiliates Lali Puna's 'Faking the Books'.

5.0 out of 5 stars German avant-pop at its finest! 27 May 2008

Neon Golden is a leftfield indie-pop album buoyed by constantly imaginative and tight production, largely informed by electronica. `One Step Inside' builds on inauspicious acoustic beginnings and builds into subtle layers of crackling electonic fug, underpinned by a wood-block rhythm. `Pilot' is instantly recognisable, a piece of classic pop charged by a electro rhythm that surges and swoops in all the right places.

The focus tends to rest heavily on the vocals, a kind of Germanic Belle and Sebastien, but The Notwist win over with their ear for melody and pop sensibility. Like this?

5.0 out of 5 stars One day all music will sound like this. 5 April 2002
Format:Audio CD
This has catapulted in as an album that I just cannot stop listening to.
Mellow electronic music with syncopated beats and stuttering rhythms. Nothing new there, and certainly nothing to set it apart from Kid A, Aphex Twin, Björk at al.
The stroke of genius is the way, through what must have surely been a massive undertaking, the band have layered on top of this countless strings, banjo and piano to create the most wonderfully moving melodies I have heard in I don't know how long. Combine this wonderful musical result with some of the most beautiful, heartfelt, nursery rhyme-esque lyrics - sung pefectly and you have a true classic of an album. To think this band started out as a trash rock band boggles the mind.
One day all music will sound like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Step Inside 7 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
Call myself a music fan?! I had never heard of NoTwist until recentley, the sublime "Pick Up The Phone" entered my head and is now destined never to leave. Perhaps a one-song wonder, I told myself, but no: low and behold a complete album mixing the best bits of pop, electronica and beautifully deadpan vocals. NoTwist have really come up with a gem here, from the slow building One Step Inside, to the immediate out and out pop of Pilot and One With The Freaks. Then there's soaring strings over the cunning loops of Solitaire and even banjo on Trashing Days (it somehow works - dont ask how). In fact this album is such a mix of styles and influences it shouldnt work yet, fantastically, it does. If your looking for something fresh, inovative and catchy this year you have to hear Neon Golden - if you dont I promise you'll missing out on the cleverest pop album around at the moment.
