    Personally, I really enjoy this record. Robert Gorl's drumming is great throughout and no one vignette wears out it's welcome. Has it been over hyped? Absolutely, as evidenced by the mild backlash brewing in the comments here. Just give it a listen before dropping 25 euro on the strength of their later work cuz Gorl's playing is really the only common link.

        Once curiosity kills the cat, it's not hard to realise "Produkt der DAF" is hardly worth a repeated listen... At best, the band DAF were at the time, sure had fun jamming along and here "less" should have been "more" but sadly it hardly surpasses "less". Maybe intentionally so (as Robert Görl once said - "the more minimal, the better").

          As one of the reviews below correctly points out, this album is not the seminal masterpiece you often read about. It is an interesting experiment, a preview of things to come, sounds a lot like rehersal for an imminent gig, or free improvisation. Indeed, Crome and the first DNA 7" had explored similar territories earlier than this first DAF incartion, and let's not forget that Faust and Neu! in Germany did release some truly seminal recordings of noisy rock deviation even before, in the early 70's.
          While the definitive DAF recordings is the "Alles ist gut"/"Gold und Liebe"/Für Immer" trilogy, the most accomplished effort in the style of "Produkt" is, in my opinion, Die Krupps' debut mini-album "Stahlwerksynfonie", a fantastic orgy of electric and electronic noise, plus their trademark metal percussions.

            On my copy, there are 10 tracks on the A-Side and 11 on the B-Side.
            The second last track on the B-Side (B09 on reissue Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft - Produkt Der Deutsch-Amerikanischen Freundschaft, also on CD reissues, given a lenght of 0.31) does not seem to exist on the original pressing.

              Not bad but definitely exaggerated with hype. Lots of potential but it ends up sounding like unfinished good ideas. Chrome started years earlier and perfected their nosey experimental space punk sound. Go listen to Chrome and the first DNA 7". The liner notes in the 2012 vinyl reissue proclaim "the first noise-rock album in the world". That's pretty silly.
