Majestic Minimalist Trail-blazer!,
This review is from: Neu! (Audio CD)
I discovered this album only a few years ago, and I have to say, I am still amazed that it exists, pre-dating Joy Division and much that came later by many years. 'Negativeland ' is like an industrial monster that was surely the first of its kind. The only comparison at the time being perhaps Faust.
The drumming on Hallo Gallo and Negativland are so like the metallic motorik sound on Unknown Pleasures, but a good 8 years earlier.
Hallo Gallo is like a dream. Beautiful and also so modern sounding.No one sounded like this in 71/72.
The two aforementioned tracks are well worth the price of the album alone.
A true classic.
