AllMusic Review by

Faust/So Far is an excellent, timely reissue of the first two LPs from the monolithic Krautrock band. Included are the complete contents of two full albums of wildly experimental head music, a portrait of a group rarely happy with what's going on unless its moving to something else. Though the material ranges far and wide -- from the distorted rock freakout of "Why Don't You Eat Carrots" to the experimental, heavily processed "Miss Fortune" to the tribal, trance-inducing pop on much of So Far -- the results are radical and astonishing, some of the most breathtaking experimental music recorded during the '70s.
