A striking gatefold reissue of Neu!'s hugely influential second album, originally released in 1973, supplied by the Gronland label. The A-side's main feature, 'Fur Immer' feels like a counterpart - or even an update - of the opener on their debut, 'Hallogallo', projecting a single, disciplined musical idea across eleven minutes of soaring propulsive precision. One of the most important features of Neu! 2 is the album's second side: having run out of money to record a second side of material, the band had to adapt to the circumstances of their predicament and in so doing found themselves innovating what's since become known as remixing. The band set about playing their previously released single Neuschnee/Super at manipulated speeds on a turntable or through a (seemingly quite faulty) cassette recorder, producing bizarre, deconstructed results. In this band's hands, what started out as a pragmatic necessity became a pioneering conceptual statement.
