Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Emerging from Berlin at the dawn of the '80s, Einstürzende Neubauten crafted a distinctive postpunk, proto-industrial sound that the group is still expanding on 18 years later. Typically, a Neubauten track combines abrasive machine sounds and the simplest of musical elements--spare bass lines, aggressive chants, thudding beats--to produce surprisingly atmospheric music. Ende Neu's "Was Ist Ist" embodies the band's punk-plus-machine attack, while "Installation No. 1" throbs with the pulse that spawned a thousand industrial groups. But the CD's most striking tracks recall the work of dramatic artists like Leonard Cohen and Serge Gainsbourg more than raging power tools. Not a surprise when you consider that singer-guitarist Blixa Bargeld has played with cabaret rockers the Bad Seeds and that Neubauten members have scored numerous films and theater works. A highlight of the album is the exquisite "Stella Maris"--a lovely duet sung by Bargeld and actress Meret Becker, accompanied by strings! --Fred Cisterna

Customer Reviews

I also changed my mind about the cultural significance of this kind of music.
Matthew Schenker
In my opinion, 'Ende Neu' is poorly made or at least more modest than the previous and the following albums, but it sounds good anyway.
D. M. MATALLIN
The English translations are included and also the language adds a bit of mystery to the album.

I am sure that fans are a blessing, but sometimes they can be the worst thing that can happen to an artist. Extreme fans can either blindly praise their worst efforts or dismiss any hint of progress or change in anyone's career just because it no longer fulfills their narrow expectations. EN opened a world of possibilities during the first 10 years of their career and some fell in love with Blixa's angry wails and the somber, tuneless assaults of "Drawings of the Patient O.T." . But the ones who paid more attention, knew that there was deeper thought and emotion into it, not just anger and rebellion. You can label them experimental, but not because they use random methods to make their music, but because there is the passion, the idea, the hope and the patience that it is required for the adventure of discovering something important. Of course EN music is not for everyone, not for mass consumption, not to listen while you are doing something else, not to party or go clubbing. EN (de)compose music that demands all your attention and your patience and at the end it always rewards. I disagree with the ones that consider that with Ende Neu our heroes sold out. Quite the opposite. It is just that they are more developed, the experiment is in a more accomplished stage. Listen to NNNAMMM for instance. There is pattern, there is a more structured rhythm but there is also a breathtaking harmonization of hundreds of machine sounds that sound like sheer sonic adventure. It is the gold they obtained from years of playing with alchemy and it is true to their premise that beauty can be found everywhere and anything can be an instrument and not just a tool.Read more ›

I am usually a fan of classical music. But a couple of yearsago, I had a chance to listen to this CD by Neubauten, right aroundthe time when it was being blamed for shootings in schools and other violent acts by children. I listened with a critical ear, expecting to be disgusted by what I heard. However, I was amazed at how complex, creative, and interesting Neubauten's music really is. It seems that the artist is truly reacting to the darkness and depression of the industrialized, mechanized, business-oriented world. His reactions seem genuine and powerful -- and that's what good art is all about. Most Industrial Rock artists don't seem as good as Neubauten. However, I now tell critics to give Industrial Rock a listen before arriving at an opinion. I also changed my mind about the cultural significance of this kind of music. A lot of people blame the music for making kids violent. But after listening to the music, I have to say I strongly believe that the music simply communicates what teenagers are already feeling about the world. Let's face it, we now live in a depressing, dark, impersonal, cold place. Kids feel that more than anyone else. Also, kids REACT to that more than anyone else. As a matter of fact, this music is probably PREVENTING violence by giving kids an alternative way to express their anger and fear -- by listening to the music, talking about it with their friends, and expressing themselves at concerts. Kids first feel the way they do because adults have screwed up the world, THEN they discover music that helps them make some sense of the world that those adults screwed up. It's not the Industrial Rock that makes kids violent in school.Read more ›

i had no clue what to expect from this album. i didnt know weather to expect just some random noise, or good music. theyve been called industrial, but its really like no other, and they dont hide behind that "well its art" curtain either. its really good, and has a soul. they use some weird items to make music, but youd just think its a sampler, or some random noise already created, but they record all the sounds themselves, which is interesting. this is an excellent release, and i plan to indulge in more of their albums. very melodic, and interesting music. catchy, and flows. i was quite suprised by this record, cause its excellent. if you want a good record, thats sung in 90% german, here it is.

ende neu is a world of it's own.. sometimes simple and pure.. sometimes cacophonous and intense. sometimes both. nowhere else could you find the mantric callings of a song such as NNNAAAMMM and the ethereal beauty of Ende Neu. the sheer simplicity and haunting chords of The Garden and the intensity of Was Ist Ist. Einsturzende Neubauten is a philosophical explosion of sound. an orgasm for your ears.. and a sunset for your mind. i suggest it without hesitation. ~patrick

'Ende Neu' is not one of the best Neubauten's works even if that doesn't mean it's bad of course, since this band has been making a good album after another for more than 20 years. When i first listened to this album I realised it sounded poorer than the previous cd, 'Tabula Rasa'; however, there're some marvellous songs and the rest are decent so I couldn't get disappointed. The first track, 'Was Ist Ist' is a very quick-tempo song which sounds rather spontaneous if not poorly made; the sound is not much elaborated, and Blixa sings as if he had no idea of what to say. 'Stella Maris' is a marvellous ballad with two voices, male and female; every time i hear it I fet imbued with an inefable sense of frailty; it's one of their less typical but nevertheless one of their best songs ever; the emotion is emanating from every single pore of this song. 'die explosion im festpielhaus' is a more typical neubauten song which could have appeared in almost every neubauten album; this implies that is a good song, especially the second part, sung by female chorus, which get my senses back to the atmosphere of Stella Maris. Blixa adds a new 'musical instrument': the pen. Then there comes 'Installation nº1', an almost instrumental song which is decent but sounds like a filler; 'NNNAAAMMM' is a 11 minute track, very electronic and with industrial rhythms which reminds me of Kraftwerk. It's another example of how minimalism and repetitiveness may not be necessarily boring.Read more ›
