4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect addition to the Kluster catalogue April 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is another tasty slice of early Kluster experimentation.
In 1971 the original lineup of Kluster (Moebius, Roedelius, Schnitzler) split up with Moebius and Roedelius going off to form Cluster.
This was recorded by Conrad Schnitzler in '71, more or less alone from what I gather. Engineers Wolfgang Seidel and Klaus Freudigmann are also credited in the liner notes, but I'm not sure about their involvement in the recording. What is known is that these tapes were unreleased until Freudigmann unearthed them in 2008.
The "music" within is typical of early Kluster, atonal avant-garde experiments utilizing various devices and instruments, twisting and manipulating them into ambient effects, feedback, etc.
I'm pretty surprised at the previous review because having liked the music these guys made before, I really don't see how one could dislike this. It's in a very similar vein and makes a perfect companion to Klopfzeichen, Zwei Osterei and Eruption. If you liked those works, buy this safely. If you're trying to get into the band, buy Eruption first, that is their best and most accomplished album IMO.
The first two albums by Cluster (Cluster 71 and Cluster II) are also highly recommended if you dig this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kuster - 'Admira' (Important Records) December 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This previously unreleased Kluster CD is said to be a live recording - but if it is indeed that, it's most certainly a very quiet crowd at that. 'Admira' is very experimental to say the least. Sound quality here is fine but with the disc's twelve tracks with a duration of 61:25 didn't knock me out. Oh, it's an okay title but personally, I got much more out of this CD's companion release 'Vulcano: Live In Wuppertal 1971' (see my review). Each cut here is untitled. First few songs have a definite out-there sound with a dream-like krautrock presence in the background. Perhaps aimed toward the die-hard fans and the completists but I like to think that the average Kluster / Cluster fan would get something good out of this pick. Footnote here: the personnel for this audio CD is listed as Conrad Schnitzler, Wolfgang Seidel and Klaus Freudigmann. So where was Roedelius and Moebius?

While in the past K(C)luster have produced some striking music this is just noise. Tiring. Avoid.
