A unique and beautiful work that will be returned to again and again. Definitely, already, an album of the year.
Neon Golden is one of the most exquisite electronic albums to come out in ages.
With Neon Golden, the Notwist have created a daring album full of different sounds and textures. While this might sound like a textbook post-rock album, it is without a doubt a record firmly anchored by its pop sensibilities.
Not only shares some textural similarities with Radiohead's "Kid A," but rivals it as an art-rock classic.
With Neon Golden, The Notwist have done something that's not exactly an easy task; they've created an album that's mixes electronic and organic music in a way that makes each better.
The Notwist are, for me, the band New Order never had a good enough singer, or a creative enough programmer, to be.
Young people who think Kraftwerk were more important than the Ramones are free to satisfy their craving for the neu with this retreat into simplicity. But even Radiohead and Mouse on Mars contain more chaos.
