Editorial Reviews

Originally released on Sky in 1979, Grosses Wasser is Cluster's last great album. Combining the ambient space rock of early albums on some songs with a more updated, beat-driven, dare I say space-disco? sound on others, it at times sounds like the best of both worlds. Cluster were probably the most influential and groundbreaking group to come out of Germany in the 70s (no small feat) and every one of their records is pure trailblazing musical history. Reissued domestically for the first time ever.

These Germans make music for aesthetes with a profound sense of wonder and irony. Where Eno often takes himself too seriously and verges on musical sterility, Cluster is able to transform musical ideas into eclectic spatial images. Not merely "Pop" artists, their classical training allows provides them with a richer language with which to juxtaoppose and marry sounds. Thomas Mann, Paul Klee, Max Ernst and Rilke come to mind. I recommend their music to all who love the infinite possibilities of electronic music...

i still remember how i found cluster. i was stuck in mid-michigan (lewiston) but on a trip to detroit i picked up grosses wasser because my grandmother spoke german and it seemed kinda cool. i was stoked beyond belief! i rotated it with bob dylan and the band, kraftwerk and aerosmith in my 8-track had some mad dog 20-20 and i just thought the combination was "right on"!!!! cluster still holds up for me, this album is the best of their work. that "chock" sound they use still remains in my brain. if you like kraftwerk, laurie anderson or the "pop" side of artrock you will like these guys.

This release, produced by recently-departed ex-Tangerine Dream member Peter Baumann, is perhaps the best showcase of Cluster in all of their different styles. The first half seesaws back and forth between a Teutonic, motoric style that Cluster hadn't entertained since their 1974 "Zuckerzeit" album and the post-Harmonia simplistic, neo-classical stylings found on "Sowiesoso" and their work with Brian Eno. But the second half...the title track...is a landmark work that combines a sweeping, soundtrack-like sensibility with ambient electronics and 'radiospiel'-like effects to create perhaps their ultimate studio composition. This album perhaps better than any other shows off what Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius are capable of. Essential.
