Rumor would have it that they didn`t had enough material for an whole album, so they recorded some tracks withe differnt speed....

They ran out of money and by necessity had to use the tapes from their debut record to finish this one. The result being an ingenious utilization of the studio as a instrument. The influence of this record is still being felt today.

The minimilist structure and repetitive rhythm of the album is closer to "Sister Ray" than their seminal debut. The percussion is relentless amongst distorted guitar sounds which trump melody. The latter is effectively abandoned in favour of an eerie narrow expressiveness. The album contains versions of songs at different speeds which by accident or design resulted in Neu becoming one of the first to utilize the technique known as "remixing".

Gwaa *facepalm* I'm so used to putting 75 next to Neu! to differenciate them. I meant Neu! (72)

I disagree..this is a great album- an rhythmic/experimental success. Other than Neu, I can only think of Talking Heads whose opening trilogy of albums were classics. Of the three, Neu75 is the most disappointing - still very good but a bit bland.

Was hoping someone would add this with the new 100 lists. I remember listening to this thinking it was the most empty pointless album ever. Just wanted to diss it. Neu! (75) is so good, you wonder why this happened...
