Einstürzende Neubauten, 'Alles Wieder Offen' (Potomak)

7
Alles Wieder Offen
Critical Mass
Label: Potomak

by J Niimi

The latest album from these German industrial pioneers (whose name means Collapsing New Buildings) suggests that their combustive early-'80s music didn't demolish rock's edifice as an end in itself, but rather as an attempt to clear the way for ever more sublime architectonics. The jackhammers and contact-miked abdominal blows are gone, but Neubauten's finely attuned sense of sonic drama remains (as on the obstinate tribal throb of "Weil Weil Weil"). A few tracks even sound like indie rock ("Let's Do It a Dada"), albeit the kind that the Huns listened to while storming the Caucasus.
