4.0 out of 5 stars dark and brooding December 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Personally, this is my favorite album by Kluster. Although I prefer the later material done by Moebius and Roedelius as CLuster, as well as solo Conrad Schnitzler, this CD still has its appeal. The three musicians, with the help of producer Conny Plank, make improvised industrial soundscapes, which only occasionally can be described as "music." That's not to say it's bad, however - the amazing thing is that despite its chaotic structure, this CD is still very listenable. This time the lyrics are read by a man, instead of by a woman like they were on the first CD. The lyrics are in German, and consist of religious stuff. For whatever reason, a church financed the making of this album, feeling that it would be an ideal way to reach potential converts for Christianity! However, I don't know much German, so the lyrics don't really distract from the music. Instead, it just adds to this CD's "weirdness." This is very avant-garde, out-there stuff. The feel is very dark, very drone-y, very noisy. Considering that this was made in 1970, it was also very revolutionary. I think the musicians involved went on to make some better work, but this album is definitely worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kluster - 'Zwei Osterei' (Cleopatra) 4 1/2 stars May 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Assuming this was their 1971 follow-up to the ground-breaking 'Klopfzeichin' album (see my review), 'Zwei Osterei' is nearly as outstanding, I thought. Call it experimental krautrock, droning, pre-industrial or whatever you like, fact remains this CD reissue is a true keeper for fans of this genre. Again, the tracks are untitled. #1) 24:00, #2) 21:51 and #3) is the second part of a live snippet from a one-off 1980 reunion that Moebius and Roedelius had performed with Joschi Farnbauer. Well done. I've been told from a friend of theirs here in the U.S. that after their 1996 tour of the states, that Roedelius and Moebius will likely never work together again. That's a shame. Really enjoyed their 2-CD release that Cleopatra had put out from that trek, 'First Encounter Tour' (see my review).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Klopfzeichen March 31, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Doesn't hit the peak set by Klopfzeichen, but still has a "menacing drone" to it. Just not as "catchy." Kluster is still better than Cluster, however, as the bonus track proves.
