2016 repress. "In 1971, Polydor entered a deal with Uwe Nettelbeck to assemble a musical ensemble that could compete with the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, and Small Faces. Before the release of their debut, Faust would send tapes to Polydor containing anything from studio experiments to recordings of someone washing dishes. Allmusic critic Archie Patterson lauded the band's accomplishment, writing that 'The impact of Faust cannot be overstated; their debut album was truly a revolutionary step forward in the progress of 'rock music'.' He awarded Faust four and a half out of five stars, concluding that 'the level of imagination is staggering, the concept is totally unique and it's fun to listen to as well.' The first 1971 Polydor (transparent) album and one of the great testaments to originality and innovation in the field, this album took two years to create, but in the 45 years since has come to be recognized as a breathtaking achievement, which hasn't aged. Remastered, repackaged for the ReR Megacorp release, which is also a part of the Faust 'Wumme Years' Box Set."
