It says "rock" up there, but let's not be coy: this is what used to be known as "krautrock", with all its strange, formalist, concretised and alienating precepts about noise and noise's relationship with music.

Neu! were one of the originals of the genre and this album was their last, unfinished work from the mid-1980s. Here it is "reworked" in memory of Klaus Dinger by his relict, Michael Rother. Strange, formalist, concretised. An essay in where electronica stood in the age of the Fairlight sequencer. Quite pleasant actually.
