Editorial Reviews

The second solo album from Krautrock legend Michael Rother (Kraftwerk, Harmonia, Neu!), originally released in 1978. Featuring Jaki Liebezeit of Can on drums and produced by Conny Plank (Kraftwerk, Ash Ra Tempel, Brian Eno, Devo), Sterntaler is wildly ahead of its time. Rother himself handles duties on guitar, syth, piano, bass and more, creating transcendent and trance-inducing ambient rock of the highest level. A Krautrock classic that ventures beyond the limitations of its genre into the territory of pioneering electronica. Hugely influential. Contains new detailed liner notes.

Michael Rother first appeared on the UK music scene ,in the ealy 70's as a duo, with Klaus Dinger, and recorded three albums under the name NEU! NEU! was essentially percussion, and glissando guitar driven "Krautrock". This style of music was popular during the early to mid 70's , mainly with the underground rock scene. Michael, then recorded two other albums with three other muscicians, as Harmonia. The transition from NEU! to Harmonia was noticable, in that Harmonia was more melodic,whilst still retaining some of the hard percussion of NEU! Michael then progressed onto a solo career, making "Sterntaler". "Sterntaler" is a totally , guitar driven instrumental album. The top layer guitar is melodic, and has some hard edge to it in parts. However, what is really interesting, is the 2nd layer down of guitar harmonies. This layer is very fluid, and almost sings. Here, there a flanger effects, and chorus,and it really is very enjoyable to listen intently to this 2nd layer. The bass and drum section, keep the rythm tightly paced. If this album needed any style classification, I would class it as Ambient Rock. Michael, also recorded another three albums solo, which are in a simillar vein . "Flammende Herzen", being the closest to "Sterntaler" This album, will appeal to those who are into melodic rock, AOR,and like good guitar playing. If you like Steve Hillage / Hawkwind / Pink Floyd / Joe Satriani, etc, then this is for you. Also check out the music of La Dusseldorf ( Michael's NEU!, partner, Klaus Dinger's bands ). NOTE : If anyone reads this in the very near future ( today is 22nd Sept 2000 ), you may be interested to know that Michael Rother is making an extremeny rare UK live appearence on 14th October, at The 3rd Millenium Concert, in London. see 3rd millenium@beeb.net

I have loved this album unconditionally since eharing it first in abt. 1980. sweetly textured instrumentals create a relflective, even melancholy mood, kind of like walking alone along some North Sea beach in October might create. Rother's playing is soulful, the sound is almost preternaturally crystal clear (as anything recorded at Conny Plank's studio was -- check the first Devo album or Clannad's Crann Ull) and the mood is unbroken through all six tracks. Want another reference point? Call Rother at this stage in his career the Krautrock Duane Eddy.

Michael Rother follows up his first solo release with this,another near-perfect collection of romantic,introspectively emotional guitar-driven instrumental Krautrock blissed-out tracks.It's true that Michael really took the "genre" of Krautrock to the next level with his first four solo releases - it just doesnt get much better than this,in my opinion.These Water re-releases sound fantastic too,so what are you waiting for??
