All Music said: “Fresh after leaving Kraftwerk in the fall of 1971 for what
they perceived to be a lack of vision, guitarist Michael Rother and drummer
Klaus Dinger formed their own unit and changed the face of German rock
forever. Neu!’s debut album was driving music for the apocalypse in 1971.”
Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Play NEU! if you want to know how it feels to be
in a trance. Their ongoing impact of playing the same riff over and over
and over again was/is hypnotizing and magnetizing.
Open your mind and get lost…
