As far as earlier Neubauten material goes, and overall with my current tastes, this album is definitally one of their best. It has all the intensity of Kollaps but is more refined and focused; they started to become more cohesive. But at the same time is chaotic enough and even more sinister and haunting in a lot of ways. The atmosphere created is quite literally, as mentioned in the other review, INSANE. Highlights are Armania, (a stable the band still plays live today), Abfakeln!, Neun Arme, the title track, Falschgeld, and the ending track 'Die genaue Zeit'

The bonus tracks are very cool too. DNS Wasserturm especially is a sweet trip, recorded inside of an abandoned watertower, the echo is nasty cool, as are the bizzare vocals, that tell the story of a dream Blixa had about how he cut his hand in the garden and his dna started to wash out of him.

not reccomended for newcomers necessarily, but for a seasoned Neubauten listener, Zeichnungen des Patienten O.T. is easily a standout piece.
