Intense and cathartic, Einsturzende Neubauten's second studio album was released in 1982 and is still one of the most frightening and beautiful albums I have ever heard, bridging the gap between the all out sonic blitzkreig of their first album Kollaps and their later, more contemplative works. I first heard this band back in 1984 when I was a moody teen masquerading as a goth. I bought the (fabulous) Strategies Against Architecture lp, with money from my paper round and fell in love with this song, Kalte Sterne:
I have included mp3's of the two sides of this cassette, partly out of laziness, and partly because I think the album is best listened to straight through from start to finish. Here's a video for the album's most well known piece, Armenia:
A1 Vanadium I-Ching
A2 Hospital Istische Kinder / Engel Der Vernichtung
A4 Neun Arme
A7 Zeichnungen Des Patienten O.T.
A8 Finger Und Zahne
B2 Die Genave Zeit
B3 Der Herrscher Und Der Sieger
B5 Durstiges Tier
