This review is from: The Faust Tapes (Audio CD)
By far their most accesible (& ubiquitous - vinyl copies where literally everywhere until the mid 90s), The Faust Tapes is a superb introduction to one of Krautrock's most enduring experiments (I've only been listening to this for 17yrs & still find new angles to explore). Assembled in an influential cut & paste style (reminiscent in many respects of The Beatles' 'White Album') and brimming with ideas, The Faust Tapes is a lysergic soundtrack to an imaginary movie projected onto the back of your mind. Or someone else's.
If you're at all interested in the genre but know not what to invest your precious pocket money, this record & CAN's supreme statement 'Tago Mago' are the perfect places to begin your very own excavations...good luck, Caruso.
