AllMusic Review by

A highly inventive post-rock group from Germany who produced three fascinating albums during the '90s. Working in the tradition of German avant-rock godfathers Faust and Can, they work without prejudice between the live, improvised groove zone and the meticulous studio edit suit. What results is a surprisingly genre-advancing exercise in splice-assembly rock far and above most groups that fall under the post-rock banner. As interesting and developed as Tortoise, Slint, or Trans Am, with some drone and glitch work that falls on this side of the avant-garde and an almost folk feel similar to Third Ear Band in parts.
