After the great, but messy "Faust Tapes", Faust hit back with one of their greatest pieces of work "Faust IV", an album full of pioneering noise-rock that builds its own universe and is a sheer delight to listen to. There's no doubt that the work here influenced some of the greatest 70s/80s/90s bands from the UK. A tremendous krautrock record; the first track aptly titled "Krautrock" is brilliant too.

Listen to this right after "A Love Supreme". It's impossible not to spot some similarities.

This album is like the culmunation of all preceeding Faust albums. Somehow they managed to make this their best album. This album is lika a psychedelic journey throug noisy experimentation which never dips in quality. Krautrock and the Just A Second - Picnic On A Frozen River, Deuxieme Tableaux are the best things they ever did.

A colossal sonic landscape. It takes time to explore all of the deep crevices that make this album such a special place to exist within.

Founding member Hans Joachim Irmler once described Faust as being ‘musical dada’ which is probably the best way to put their sound into words. A bizarre collage of noisy guitars, experimental percussion and snippets of jazz all created with a sense of anarchic fun. ‘Faust IV’ is a classic of its era. Like a lot of German albums of the decade it is almost criminally underrated but remains a must have for fans of experimental rock music. Still touring and recording today Faust have forged a unique musical path. This record offers a glimpse into their sound at its most accessible stage, managing to be both uncompromising and catchy.

Trippy kosmische musik convulsions combine with Barret-esque whimsy. The result is somewhat of a radical, yet more focused (albeit less experimental) departure from their groundbreaking debut. This record grows on you with each listen as increasingly its complexities and subtleties are revealed.
