I am so glad this exists. Not just as something to "appreciate", but I am impressed to think that this came out the same year as Let It Bleed
(the double-tracked drums in particular are kicking my ass). I've listened to every Youtube video posted and I love this band. I want to say it's challenging, but again, that implies this is somehow an exercise in appreciation. I find it all highly listenable, in a way that I find that pushing toward extremes can provide the biggest thrills (so long as you don't fall head first into cacophony). I don't find it any more Teutonic than, say, Side One of Atom Heart Mother
, but these fuckers can play
. Perhaps this is the music I've been searching for all these years. So far, so good.
