Digitally remastered edition of this 1972 album from the German Experimental outfit. Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius had been making experimental Electronic music since meeting at Berlin's famed Zodiak arts lab in the late 1960s. Cluster II was their second work for a major label and was released in Germany on the Brain label in 1972. The sessions saw producer (and contributor to Cluster's first album) Conny Plank oversee the proceedings. Less "industrial" in feel to Cluster's debut work, Cluster II is nevertheless a classic, hailed by aficionado Julian Cope as a major album in his book Krautrocksampler. This edition is newly remastered and fully restores the original album artwork and includes a booklet with new essay. Esoteric.
