Even in 2022, Neu! still sounds like the future. It’s easy to talk about how much this band/record have influence but there is no denying that the power of sheer hypnotism that it has. Right from the first track “Hallogallo,” the catchy groove and sustained motorik rhythm pulls you in and before you know it the dreamy synths and hazy electric guitars takes you over. The name of the game here is repetition, but the songs feel unrepetitive because of the shifting soundscapes that the duo of Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger conjures. For all it’s inventiveness it never manages to sound aimless or experimental for the sake of it. This is record is a trip and an easy but rewarding one to say the least.
