Other Neu albums are generally better reviewed, but for me this is the real thing and a defining moment in music history. I bought it on vinyl back in 72 or thereabouts and it's been a firm favourite ever since. Some krautrock classics (Can, Kraftwerk, Amon Duul) can sound dated, and even Neu's later recordings did little more than rework the same basic ideas, but this still comes up fresh as a daisy after more than three decades. As UK DJ John Peel said at the time -- "now that's REALLY alternative". Buy this, then buy everything Faust ever did.
