Review from RateYourMusic:
An interesting compilation of underground music from Berlin from around 1980, mostly composed of minimal electronic stuff that I just don't get. But there are exceptions, especially towards the second half of the album.
Der tobende Luftkampf offers an amazingly amateurish psychobilly cover of Elvis' Fever, and Die Zwei give us a nice and strange little cover of Christian Anders' original schlager). MDK's song is a pretty hypnotic post-punk ballad (do I detect a reggae touch here?). Another song I'll remember is Borsig's Hiroshima – a simple waltz highlighted by the sarcastic lyrics "Hiroshima, how beautiful it was" …
This is an interesting album, but it's not for me – there's too much of strange electronic feeping, droning and beeping sounds and gibbering voices getting on my nerves. If you like minimal electronic avantgarde music, this may well be your thing.

From Журнал Колодец, a Russian press archive:
At the time Recker was much more interested in projects such as P1/E and Die Sentimentale Jugend (The Sentimental Youth). Both featured the prolific 15 year old wunderkind Alexander Hacke, who then called himself Alexander Von Borsig after the Berlin plant where his father worked. Hacke smuggled Neubauten into Die Sentimentale Jugend's studio sessions, and together and apart they came up with the raw concrete noise collages of urban tribal rhythms, broadcast fragments, ruined guitar and noise that made it onto the Neubauten side of "Monogram Sampler" (Monogram 006 LP). These "Monogram" releases are almost as impossible to find as the handful of Neubauten live and studio cassettes Bargeld used to sell at Eisengrau during their first year of existence. The original A side "Für Den Untergang" is on the compilation "Als Die Partisanen Kamen" ("When the Partisans Came"), an excellent overview of the Berlin underground from 1979–83, which features the aforementioned Mania D, Frieder Butzmann and Mekanik Destrüktiw Komandöh, among others, and opens with the Neubauten/Sentimentale Jugend track "Wollt Ihr Die Totale Befriedigung" ("Do You Want Total Satisfaction" – a pun on Josef Göbbels' infamous exhortation, "Do you want total war?"), essentially a mutated take of The Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction".
