5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Interesting NEU! July 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Not as tuneful as NEU! 75 or as revered as NEU! #1, it is the most interesting in terms of remixing. By simply slowing down and speeding up different tracks they create totally different feelings and totally different songs. Super 16 and Super are polar opposites, 16 is slow and druggy and sounds like the monster under your bed, plain super is intense and punkish. The modern concept of the remix starts here (plus the rest of the songs are beyond excellent, as it goes without saying for NEU!). While the other two are most listenable, this is the NEU! you CANNOT live without a minute longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Sis, I'll buy you it for Xmas! June 18, 2001
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
I remember my older sister having this LP, when I left home I stole it and never told her! I can't believe it's taken over 20 years for it to be re-issued! For me, "Fur Immer" is the definitive Neu! track, the definitive motorik track if you prefer. Unlike "Hallogallo", which it superficially resembles, it has that distinctive clean rhythm guitar sound which is as recognisably "Neu!" as the relentless get-out-of-my-way drumming style (just ask Stereolab). Again, this track seems more dynamic and better thought out than "Hallogalloo", the crescendos and de-crescendos work better and the overall sound is lusher - tho "Hallogallo" has a punchier feel. Of the other tracks on this release, "Neuschnee" has a lovely Rother melody set to a punishing Dinger beat - another perfect Neu! track! "Super" and "Lila Engel" simply invent punk rock - monstrous beats, insane guitar and Dinger's extraordinary strangulated retch of a voice. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is taken up with mere space-filling noodling: the record player distortions of "Super" and "Neuschnee" could be some sort of dadaist anti-art precursor to the modern-day turntablism or else they could just be a cheap and quick way to fill up space (I tend towards the latter argument). Nonetheless I have always found 'Cassetto', the warbly warped-tape version of 'Hallogallo', a perfectly acceptable way to fill space when making up a Neu! compilation tape for friends - of course, now the Neu! albums are all available on CD my compilation tape days may just be behind me....

5.0 out of 5 stars We're gonna do it anyway February 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First of all, let me say that once in a great while amazon gets the track listing slightly off. I bought the album tonight and it is sitting here in front of me as I write this. The album, I assume, is supposed to look as closely to the original vinyl as possible. It even has the songs split into two sections which are noted as Sides 1 and 2. The correct track listing should be:

1. Für Immer

2. Spitzenwualitat

3. Gedenkminute

4. Lila Engel

5. Neuschnee 78

6. Super 16

7. Neuschnee

8. Cassetteo

9. Super 78

10. Hallo Excentrico !

11. Super

On the back of the CD, what would have been side two of the original record release, is above what would have been side one. So if you do not happen to notice that they are labeled as side one and side two then you may be confused. However a CD as we all know only has one side.

Anyway, the album is brilliant. I'll bet Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother said some variation of "we're gonna do it anyway" a time or two in their careers as NEU! Just look at the record, the track listing is shoved all the way into the top left corner and takes a minute to figure out. Beyond that, once you listen to the album you'll notice something. For those familiar with turntable speeds, you'll know that Super 16 does not refer to the variation of 16mm motion picture film used to give a higher quality look when transfered to 35mm. If you know anything about the history of the turntable, records, and vinyl (in relation to sound recording) you'll know about the 16RPM records were used for voice recording and by Chrysler for the car stereo turntables that they jokingly used. They printed special versions of various albums in 16RPM.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Neu! 2": Possibly the first 'remix' album. June 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the relatively large success of their first album in Germany, Neu! members Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger returned to the studio with engineer Conny Plank to recorded their second album. "Neu! 2" starts out as a continuation of the first album. The 11-minute opening track "Fur Immer" is a beefier heavier take on "Hallogallo" from the first album. Klaus Dinger's drumbeat stays locked in place while Michael Rother's guitar swims and swerves around a stationary E-major chord. This is a fine piece of minimalist-rock. The following piece, "Spitzenqualitat", focuses on "Fur Immer's" driving drumbeat which gradually slows down until it stops. While this is going on, various echo and electronic effects weave through the drum rhythm. This leads directly into "Gedenkminute" which is a full minute of wind sounds and a church bell tolling. "Lila Engel" closes the first half of the album with Klaus Dinger's driving drums and moaning vocals.
The second half of the album is where everything shifts drastically. Legend has it that while Neu! was in the middle of recording this album, they discovered that their recording budget had run out and had to finish everything in a huge rush. For this part of the album, Rother and Dinger used an early single as the basis for manipulating and stretching the music into one side of an LP. So what we have here is two tracks, "Neuschnee" and "Super" included in their original versions as well as the tracks being played back at 16 and 78 RPM.
