No-one else would think of calling the very first song on their album 'I'm going now' and then conjure up images of perpetuity immediately afterwards. But then no one has ever made the first two songs of their album about a) a post-coital stain and b) a post-coital cigarette either (as Neubauten apparently did on their extraordinary and equally essential previous album 'Silence is Sexy'). And yet people think that the Libertines or the Darkness are where it's at. Well they're wrong. I'm still right at the beginning of enjoying this excellent album, but I can already safely predict that I will be listening to it years from now, long after those aforementioned over-hyped and over-rated groups have been forgotten.

Air is the dominant theme of this album, as a partial scan of the list of instruments shows: car tire, plastic tubes, an air compressor, gas burner, electric fans, accordion, whistling, and a turntable-powered wind instrument.

On 'Paradiesseits' Blixa sings that "all images are the wind...", and in 'Boreas' ('North Wind') he asks when the wind will come "that billows our words' sails?" The latter is powered by the eerie sound of amplified steel wires, and features a haunting, fragile melody, like delicate crystals of ice, evoking a deep sense of yearning for the lost Hyperborea. The opening track 'Ich Gehe Jetzt', by contrast, feels contemplative. Bargeld sounds like he is thinking about setting out on a journey...taking his time, spinning a globe of the world in his study. Maybe he thinks the whole world should spin with him.

The title track is a true epic, an amazing evocation of constant motion that owes something to Kraftwerk's 'Trans Europa Express'. But although 'A Rare Bird' carries in its beak a new song ("das neue Lied"), we should never forget that the dead are ever present, as the haunting song 'Dead Friends' reminds us...

'Perpetuum Mobile' is a remarkable album, and (along with 'Silence is Sexy') represents Einstürzende Neubauten's finest work.

I first heard the title track on BBC Radio 3's "Mixing it".
Very nice rhythyms in the Neu! style but much more modern of coure. I've lots of Krautrock but this is the first Einsturzende Neubauten record I've purchased. It won't be the last. Best track apart from the title track is is "You me you".
