“Neu! 2” by Neu! - album review

« album.png »

TJR says

The seemingly language-less “Lila Engel” (“Lilac Angel”) was typical of Neu!, Klaus Dinger style – ugly, aggressive and played blankly with wild, yet strangely disciplined, abandon. “Turn that racket DOWN” shouted the Mums of 1973. Unfortunately, the duo sabotaged their second album by rendering 16RPM and 78RPM “versions” of songs, intended as a 2-fingered salute to the record company, but ultimately short-changing fans who had parted with their hard-earned. Dicks *. Despite teetering on the brink of extinction afterwards, guilt (or perhaps shame?) drove the duo back into the studio for one last hurrah; they would more than make up for the patchy Neu! 2 with the treasure-packed Neu! ’75. * I love them really.
