The record rides a sort of highly glossed, pumped-up synth sheen, redolent of those La Dusseldorf or La! Neu? recordings; with repetitive, insistent electronic beats cracking the whip.
At times the record does seem to hold the listener aloof, as on Schadenfreunde and Ganz Ganz Ganz Genau which do have a little of Klaus Dinger’s glacial utopian spirit about them.
An interesting single, Herzlich Willkommen / Schadenfreunde, is brought to our attention courtesy of Pop Campaign, a duo who flit between Glasgow & Berlin.
