One of the most important pieces of Euro-unobtainium for years has been the NEU! albums. These works influenced a host of musicians who've managed to get hold of them in some way or another; from Detroit techno wizards to lo-fi tinkerers, a host of players owe a long-unsung debt to NEU!
The final Brain-released 'canon' effort, "NEU! '75" was created after an initial breakup of the duo following a UK tour to support their second album. And almost to illustrate this break and the looming second one, this final album is a really schizoid effort. But by no means is it flawed by this. Vide...
The first half is a melodic, more ambient-flavored affair. Very pretty, it's dominated by Michael Rother's work, which would become more apparent once his solo albums would begin appearing in subsequent years. As you go forward here, the intensity ramps down, and the tempos slow until you're deposited into the surf and reverberant piano of "Leb' Wohl". Here, we find the precursors to much that would come later in 'ambient' music across the next couple of decades.
But the second half is dominated by a crazed Klaus Dinger...and he wails and yowls across a Kraftwerk-...-Stooges variant of the NEU! sound on "Hero" to kick this off. After a drop into the metronomic NEU! beat to follow, howls of feedback and yelling kicks off "After Eight"...and doesn't this sound a lot like the Sex Pistols yet to come? My, my, my...no coincidence there! NEU!, especially on this album, was one of the oft-cited influences on the sound of the Brit punk scene of the late 1970s.
All of the NEU! albums are essential. But this one is the one that left several marks on history-yet-to-come. As such, it rises a bit above "NEU!" and a good bit more above the semi-unfinished "NEU! 2". But one thing I can say is that five stars is not sufficient here, and if you're someone into the cutting-edge of present-day music, this is one piece of 'retro' (which doesn't really sound it!) that's a must-get.

This is the final album proper from the duo known as Neu! While they are part of the entire so-called Krautrock scene, and worked with many others, their reputations rest on these three albums they did as Neu! This is, in my estimation, the best of the three. It starts out with a classic "motorik" groove number, then a more static melodic piece, then closes (what was originally, back in the LP day) the side with a faintly punk-ish, energetic but grooving number. The rest of the CD follows a similar pattern: moving from groovier rhythm pieces with subtle washes of guitar and synth patterns, to the final track, which ups the energy level again in a way almost antipatory of punk.

Highly original, unprecedented, and a CD that will grow on you. It rewards repeated listening like special records do. You'll still be listening to this 20 years from now.

Seems rather simplistic to talk of this brilliant album in terms of Michael Rother=melodic and Klaus Dinger=noisy. Anyone familiar with Klaus Dinger's subsequent work with La Dusseldorf will know that he could be just as gooily romantic as Michael Rother. But, yes, the first three tracks here are the Rother tracks - and yet "Isi" and "Seeland" are miles better than anything on his solo LPs. "Isi" is a lovely streamlined version of the definitive Neu noise, pulsing drums, chink-a-chink rhythm guitar and sweet keyboard melodies. "Seeland" is calm and stately and guitar-based, it seems to look backwards to "Weissensee" from the 1st Neu LP, while "Leb'wohl" is a wonderful hypnotic two-chord piano piece with cracked, moving vocals from Klaus Dinger. The final three tracks are the "Dinger tracks". "Hero" and "After Eight" are, as has often been pointed out, direct precursors of punk and post-punk: Dinger's aggressive incoherent yelp, the relentless double drum pounding (which almost drowns out the rest of the track on "After Eight"), massed fuzzed-up guitars. (Tho' let's not forget that Rother pulled off the same trick with the track "Monza" on Harmonia's 2nd LP). Sandwiched between these 2 headbanging meisterwerks, "E-Musik" lays the cards on the table, I mean what chords do you need other than E-major - it's the most noodly, weakest track here but still pretty special nonetheless. All in all, their most consistent album...

I write as I listen to this disc, and this band, for the first time and find that Neu! (New! in German) truly lives up to the challenge of its name. I cannot believe this sonic adventure was released all the way back in '75.
As I listen to this succinct effort, it proves to me what I believe Dali said: that the best artists are also the best thieves. Once you've added this to your collection (if you haven't already done so), see if you can hear Stereolab, the Sex Pistols, Wire, Galaxie 500 (?) and other top-shelf artists obviously influenced by this band in later years.
German bands like Can & Kraftwerk had a strong influence on "electronica" in the 70's and beyond. Listening to this makes me wonder whether 70's German bands cut out a wider swath in modern music than I originally thought.
A very rewarding listen indeed.

Every noise-pop enthusiast's prayer answered: NEU! on CD, at last! The third album is still my fave, as it seems to be the crossroads of punk, pop and "atmospheric" sound. This stuff just induces folks to go night-driving, in search of... anything. NEU! seemed to be writing soundtracks for films that exist only in the mind. The list of people they inspired reads like a Hall of Fame roll call: everyone from PiL and Joy Division to Sonic Youth and Radiohead. It's just too cool to know this stuff is back in circulation.
