It still sounds fresh and adventurous today.
Chet Fakir
Groundbreaking composition that hardly anyone even knows about, and gosh darn it they should!

This release sees the initial collaboration between the electronic duo Cluster and NEU! multi-instrumentalist Michael Rother, with the result being perhaps one of the best examples of the Krautrock form. This release, along with the more flowing and poppy "Deluxe", takes the industrialisms of early Cluster and the driving rock mechanisms of NEU! and splices them together to concoct a very satisfying artifact. Stuttering electronic rhythms sit alongside alternately tranquil and creepy ethereal ambiences here, making this an excellent look at the mid-70s German scene prior to Kraftwerk's "Autobahn" and its blowing the doors open to this style of music. Those interested at all in the early days of electronic pop MUST own a copy of this.

Cluster and Neu's Michael Rother make an amazing, and mesmerizing first album here as Harmonium. Obviously very influential for David Bowie's Berlin albums Low and Heroes not to mention Brian Eno (who later collaborated with Cluster), Harmonia is dreamlike, unsettling, hypnotic, yet most times beat driven. It epitomizes what was interesting about so-called krautrock: rock beats, rhythm, repetition, simple yet engaging melodies and avant-garde timbre and tonal overlays. This is a powerful atmospheric album and it's not to be missed for those who enjoy that '70s German progressive rock sound a la Faust, Can and Popul Vuh. Check it out if you want to hear a band and sound that influenced Stereolab, My Bloody Valentine and to some extent Radiohead among others. It still sounds fresh and adventurous today.

Originally released in 1974, 'Musik Von' is a true krautrock gem. In my humble opinion, it sounds like it could've EASILY been Neu's fourth lp. Cluster members Moebius and Roedelius joined forces with Neu! mastermind Michael Rother to assemble this timeless classic. I ended up waiting a while to get a copy of this CD, but it was WELL worth it. Though I cannot understand the song titles, my favorites are "Watassi", "Sehr Kosmisch" (English translation: Very Cosmic), the mind-erasing "Ahrwurm" and "Ahoi!" (meaning Ahoy!). An absolute MUST have for any true fan of this genre.

This one is near the top in my humble opinion. A more perfect collaboration is hard to imagine - the combination of the cascading guitars of Neu! with the minimal electronic explorations of Cluster produce a brilliant sum that is far greater than its individual elements. Drone, drama, intensity, repitition, beauty, all instrumental. Groundbreaking composition that hardly anyone even knows about, and gosh darn it they should!

Lots of rhythmic pulsing, gyrating tones ping ponged on analog recorders, sounds of synth, guitar, and synthetic percussion.
Along the lines of early Popul vuh, and later Manual Gottsching (though without the compelling and astonishing guitar lead work).

This material, and others like it, (these fellows were from Cluster and Neu!) laid the foundations of what would be come "new wave" and electronica 10-20 years later.

Though, these early bands appreciated a primitiveness to the sound that gives them a kind of authenticity that was lost later on.
It's not all rhythmic dance club mix such and such, it's also noise scapes and other interesting artifacts.
Enjoy!

Beware that this release is COPY CONTROLLED. You might want to consider the Japanese release on Metronome; it costs a bit more but I don't think it suffers from this issue.
