For those music lovers of a certain age, Einsturzende Neubauten (or for convenience EN) represent the point at which you learned to love the sound of drilling and the clash of dustbin lids. If like me you clutched your crystal wireless under the covers to listen to the late lamented John Peel, you will love this CD. From the restrained Zentrifuge to the mighty Die Interimsliebenden, this is a fine collection of later works by Deutchland's finest. The attraction of this group lies in the fact that they work outwith the usual parameters of popular music and from a distinctly European approach,thus acting as a counterpoint to the all pervasive Americanisation of the airwaves.Thoughtful but explosive. Not only that but it allows you to make good use of those kitchen impliments should you feel the need to join in at some of the more frenetic moments. Air saucepans anyone? A must for all those who value adventure and spirit above routine rock'nroll cliche. So start practicing with those utensils and gutteral screams now, you won't be disappointed.

Strategies three, is a retrospective of the last ten years of the Einstürzende Neubauten out put. Most of the tracks are alternate version new stuff or live versions. One of the impressive things is the variety of the material on offer. 'Snake' is a scrapped version of 'Salamadrina' but here it sounds better than most bands finished stuff. The live tracks are mostly from 'Silence is Sexy' though one treat is a Rumpe version of 'I wish
this would be your colour'.Other high points are the french version of 'Blume', though the rarer Japanese version is absent.
On a different note there are the original ballet versions of the songs that they did for the La La Human steps company, which is mostly instrumental. Though as the later tracks prove it has become Blixa Bargelds text that drive the band. This is a neat round up of the last decade. Hopefully a "pit stop in the past then straight ahead to the

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 22 Jan 2011
Format: Audio CD
My mind wandered in the 90's away from the power of the 80's to discover the lands beyond in art, film and other cultures. It was a long slow divorce based on "growing apart" rather than a love filled infidelity or a lustful passion for another.

A journey to perceive what lay beyond the given and a peek at what was on the horizon. Returning back to young adulthood playing the old discs, something was rekindled, a flame sparked, submerged within the heavy weight of modern living, a pulse, sign of vitality, the recognition it has not always been that way. The IKEA furniture long thrown out as it collapsed was never a suitable trade in, a moment of wanting to belong to a cultur that is intrinsically shabby.

Slowly in middle youth the excavation through the layers of sediment unearths the old life forms, still living pulses replete with vibrancy and jolts of energy. Digging the hole wider and deeper provides an exit, not just into touching a living corpse but an entry into another world. This is the drilling through the archeological layers of the self.

This double CD is one of those markers for band that seemingly would have disappeared into making commercials for Audi, Mercedes or Hugo Boss instead creating some challenging but almost strangely accessible forms of music.

Whilst waves of acid ingestation of the early 90's swamped the synapses of music to create the same forms of bump bump bump backed by the trappings of various armed robberies, small TAZ's sprouted. Balearic islands created a funnel for a collective euphoria that could never be carried any further. As soon as the acid wore off, like Cinderella everything went; pouf! The magical moments produced no legacy apart from half forgotten lysergic memories.

So addictive 10 Jun 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Admittedly I was new to the game when I bought this . I had heard of them but I didn't know what they sounded like . I bought this and I haven't regretted it . This is something that is impossible to describe in words . If anything the music is incredible ( OK it has drills and the bleeps of mobile phones but all credit for experimentation - let it continue ).
If you are intrigued by this band - I would suggest you buy this straight away . If the sound of drills and such like isn't for you then that's OK - whatever you are into is of your own concern .

Orchestrated Beyond Boundaries 20 Dec 2001
By "zornketahl" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Einsturzende comes through again with their latest musical masterpiece. Even though this, their latest release is highly experimental, their are many shining moments here that even people unfarmiliar with Einsturzende will enjoy. The earlier albums were more primal and grinding, whereas this addition is more solemn, deep, and haunting. There is still music here that is "heavy," but the mechanics of ambient sound are much cleaner and in control here, as opposed to early albums which have a experimental, disconnected feel. Their music here, still stretches limitations, though the lyrics are not as abrasive, the orechstration of real industrial sound is even more intelligent than before. Some of the songs seem spacious at first, but upon familiarizing with them the roaming background effects become an emulsion of sheer beauty and magnificence. This is evidenced in songs like "Architektur ist Geiselnahme(alt)" and "Alles Was Iregendwie Nutzt(new)," which begin gradually as the gathering of the ocean tides, then crescendo to a brilliant conclusion of grandeur. It is as though something greater than comprehension like a devine being has arisen from between the notes of music. For the fans of Einsturzende, there are many great live versions of previous songs here, like "Ende Neu," "Redukt," and "Alles Was Irgendwie Nutzt." Yet, there is something for everyone here, from the techno-industrial beat of "12305TE NACHT" and "Die Interimsleibenden," to the sleepy harmonic hum of "The Garden" and "Bili Rubin," and to the utter rhythmically, metallic percussion of "Drachen" and "Was Ist Ist" Strategies Against Architecture III aims to please. Yet, if you are unfamiliar with this German industrial band, I recommend starting with Strategies I or II, or Ende Neu.

Like it 4 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just recently bought this record, and living in finland, Einsturzende Neubauten records are hard to come by.
Therefore, it is my first EN record. I am a fan of noisy, experimental sound in music, and having heard of EN, i knew they were a band i would like.
What i liked in their music, was the lack of synthezisers.
They have a very unique sound to their music. Blixa Bargeld is a fitting singer for the band, and in my opinion, is able to bring out emotion nicely.
Especially the live versions of the songs have lot of energy, the spontaneus pieces are very coherent, not degenerating into uncomprehensible rabble.
Some of the songs in there are quite unusual, silent and ambientish, while some are rough rides.
I liked it very much, and i believe if anyone fancies experimental, industrial music he should grab this one.

interesting 4 Mar 2003
By I X Key - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This 2-cd set of rare & previously unreleased music they did in the 90's shows some sides of Neubauten we hadn't seen before & offers more of what we knew. It has angular noise, futuristic minimalism that changes in increments over a vast fabric of repetition. Jarring ambience. There are some live versions of songs from 90's EN albums. They sound different live. It gets 4 stars because the music is so great. I can't give it more because the music is so uneven that it can be kind of hard to listen to sometimes. But I also feel like since this was released almost simultaneously with Berlin Babylon, their most solid album ever, they must have made this one so uneven on purpose....

A Phenomenal Compilaton! 28 April 2005
By Schmaddio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having never heard their music I bought this cd used and on the cheap and only because I had read other reviews that EN is a great band. As is often the case with experimental upon first listen I wasn't sure that it was even worth the six bucks I shelled out for it. Well... that was about six months ago and I've probably played it every day since. Another reviewer called it "addicting" and I have to agree so if you're in a 12 Step Program for recovering music addicts then you might want to stay away but otherwise I highly recommend this one to anyone who's into experimental sounds and doesn't mind lyrics sung in German. One quick and important note though... I'm not familiar with their early works which is often labeled as "industrial"... this one is anything but.
