Editorial Reviews

Upon the breakup of legendary Krautrock duo Neu!, drummer Klaus Dinger formed La Düsseldorf with his brother Thomas and keyboard player Hans Lampe. This, their self-titled debut, was recorded in 1975 and is a staggering mix of Dinger's trademark motorik rhythms, glammy synths, pulsing organs, and urgent guitar work that altogether create a sound that, at times, predates both punk and post-punk, no small feat. Featuring their European hit single Silver Cloud, La Düsseldorf's debut record is classic Krautrock on par with the best offerings of Neu!, Kraftwerk, and Can.

Writing this review simply because a (clearly joking) troll decided to knock down this albums's average rating by writing a lousy review.

This is, simply put, one of the best albums ever made. Krautrock at its best.

There are four songs on this CD. "Time" is great; the other three are OK.

CD is still worth the purchase, for "Time" alone, if you like that song. You can find the video on youtube - search for "Time by Dusseldorf."

I am a fan of NEU!, and this album has a track (Time) that is worthy of Dinger (the thrashier punkier member of NEU!). While not my favorite, this album has its moments and is quite toned down from much of Dinger's other more cataclysmic sounding music (i have always preferred Rother's ambient emotionally based sound over Dingers wild stylization).

After I got into Rammstein I decided to look for more feirce Europeaen rock bands so I found this band, but this CD doesn't make any sense. It's just the same drum beat over and over. There aren't even really choruses, it's all just dumb noises. The guy keeps going "aaaa" in a French accent and it really gets on my nerves.

If you look at the songs in audacity you can see the whole envelope! How could they ship this CD out if it's not even produced? Definitely pass this.
