The very first album of Die Krupps, recorded in 1981 and re-released in 2010 as a double CD, with addition of several live tracks recorded in Krefeld on June 6, 1981. The first CD, which contains the remastered version of the original album, sounds much less noisy than the albums of other classics of German industrial music - E.Neubauten - that were recorded circa the same time. In fact, it's clearly influenced by the krautrock scene of 1970s, and serves as a good illustration to these often overlooked roots of German industrial scene. The second CD, with the live tracks, is much more noisy and improvisation-based. Overall, this is one of my favourites in the whole Die Krupps' discography (I don't like their famous 90s' albums that much).
