5.0 out of 5 stars Ambient Industrial 12 Feb 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Forged from the softer tones of the 21st century albums. The volcanic anger of the incipient years has cooled but never evaporated. Instead other textures have been explored. These songs have a narrative, less experimental than Nurse With Wound but not exactly punching the air with U2. Far too much depth and vision to be lumped with the sprawling mass. Unashamedly elitist in its conception requiring an openness to new sonic forms for immersion.

Ambient soft industrial capturing fleeting moments of peace rather than the perpetual clash of arc welders singeing metal to metal.

The booklet attached to the CD explains how the music was created without being didactic

The texts are sung in German and English allowing an entre into each kulture. It plays gently in the background casting a soft amber light into the midnight rather than pumping adrenaline around the body in fits and busts of bristling anger.

Therefore recommmended for its atmospheric delights.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you missed.. 20 Mar 2011
By A. Zane - Published on Amazon.com
This latest in the Strategies Against Architecture series continues Einstürzende Neubauten's generous tradition of offering original and interesting variations in their compilations. SASIV has many songs that were only available through the supporter project so is a 'must have' for the average fan. In comparison to other SAS series these songs tend to be more fully developed and offer EN's trademark range of experimental aural impact.

For the completely uninitiated you should know that most of these songs are sung in German and that early works by this band were uncompromisingly abrasive and chaotic but over time have become progressively more melodic, redolent with precision percussion without sacrificing dedication to experimentation. Start with the recent albums and work backwards until EN just seems too, too harsh for your sensibilities. Wait for six months and you will find that album which seemed so challenging will have become your new favorite. Precede accordingly... but be warned they become addictive as the rest of pop music becomes dull and predictable. Trade off is that you start listening to all of life as musical.

'Supporters' of all three phases will likely have most of these works but some original and interesting live versions are also included to mollify the completists in the crowd. In this day of rampant file sharing, buying uncompressed CDs has become antiquated but with their huge dynamic range of custom built instrumental sound, Blixa Bargeld's vocal nuance and exquisite attention to detail you really NEED to hear Einstürzende Neubauten on a real stereo for full effect.
Mp3 compression? Tiny speakers in earbuds? Bah-humbug!

5.0 out of 5 stars essential EN and record of the year. 12 April 2011
By tvnosaint - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been an EN fan since the Thirsty Animal 45 came out. I've long held them as truest expression of human misery. i admit the smoother style of their later records was a little hard for me to get used to. i came to embrace them due to the brilliance of 'alles wieder offen' and after seeing them during the perpetuum mobile tour. Now the later stuff spends much more time with me.
SAA IV is easily the best of the series. their evolution amazes me. this is more of a stand alone record than the other three SAA records. much more material that wasn't available on their studio efforts. i was capitvated on first listen. I can't take it off. I've grown up with EN, and this record is the best possible starting place for people that are interested. the songs are melodic and powerful, trance inducing and tragically beautiful (cliche, i know). Especially in better grade equiptment. The soundstage the music explores is immense. They will make those new IEMs or AKGs sound amazing. As the nuances reveal themselves and the weighty shifts of gravity lean and wobble before deconstructing around your person.
A favorite track on the record is ' Wo sind meine shoe' unlike anything they've done. there are a few tracks on here that i can't believe didn't make an album (wenn dann)about 8 or 9 pieces that the casual fan hasn't seen here and if you look at the current trends, it won't be around long. So go get it! you will not be disappointed. also visit the site [...] and see the videos on youtube to get a little longer listen to the tunes.( most are earlier works).
Great way to fall in love with EN again or for the first time.

I've been a Neubauten fan ever since a French girlfriend I had in college introduced me to them in 1984. I was hooked. Although I really love their earlier body of work, this is a good anthology of what they've been up to the last 10 years or so. Over 2 hours of Blixa screaming etc... Priceless.

4.0 out of 5 stars I was watching a Sepultura DVD the other night 21 July 2012
By Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
And noticed the Max Cavalera of the now famous Cavalera Conspiracy was wearing a
t-shirt by these guys and this band, I had heard of them before but never experienced any of thier music and now I'm looking to hear at least a few of the CD's because my interest is piqued. The name now sounds familiar to me. My background is of German origin even though I am not german but know a few german words.

They remind me now of Nuerosis to a certain extent.
