AllMusic Review by

A jam-packed hybrid of new tracks and remixes from his previous three albums, Golden Star is also the most satisfying, consistently engaging N.U.F. release to date. In addition to a handful of new tracks which follow up on Friedmann's previous mini-album's (Raum Fur Notizen) warped, idiosyncratic charm, Golden Star features such artists as Scanner, Pink Elln, Solid Doctor's Steve Cobby, Porter Ricks, Pluramon, 8m^2 Stereo, and O. Braun pulling, twisting, clipping, weaving, and otherwise abusing N.U.F.'s source tapes. Drawn through as many individual styles as Friedmann is apt to combine in a single track (experimental ambient, house, minimal techno, funky electro-jazz, downtempo, and rapid-fire drum'n'bass), the album is uniformly intriguing, each artist taking full inspiration from Friedmann's stylistic restlessness.
