OUR NOISE, Herrmann & Kleine's only album, starts off with beauty of "Drop," rather than noise, and I think that spirit carries though the rest of the album. "Her Tune" has a delicacy to it that belied by the beat and the chaos that creeps into its midsection. But "Shuttle" and "Headlights" drop into some melancholy with a disembodied female voice of the former and the lingering tones of the latter. The cover of Mazzy Star's "Blue Flower" is also nice, though it sounds very similar to the Pale Saints' version, but for pure shoegaze, "Wonder" hits the spot. The short and sweet "Don't Look Back" ends the album on a sedate note. Quite lovely overall.

This album is great. No matter what reviewers around the web want you to believe, I myself absolutely love it. Standout tracks, for me, are Still Tired, Her Tune, Shittle and Blue Flower. That said, I really can't understand that Blue Flower is the track that gets the most bashing in several reviews. But then again, the reviewers are also just giving their opinions. And everyone is entitled to their own. Well, this is mine: a truly great record. Therefore, I'm glad that Discogs users apparently can appreciate it.

Morr Music calls this release "Plinkerpop." Regardless of what you want to call it, "Our Noise" is definitely a highlight of the Morr catalog.

The nice thing about this album is that Herrmann and Kleine utilize their backgrounds to make something interesting. The tracks that work the best are the ones that have the aggressive hip hop type beats with ambient melodies. As the album nears the end, it becomes more and more sedated.

You'll swear that it is possible to dance to ambient music after listening to this album.
