Einstürzende Neubauten – Halber Mensch
Halber Mensch (or 1/2 Mensch; English: Half Person) is the third studio album by German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, released on 2 September 1985. Halber Mensch shows a wider artistic range for the group, incorporating elements of electronic dance music in “Yü-Gung (Fütter mein Ego)” and performing the title track nearly a cappella. The group also expands their dynamic range; Blixa Bargeld’s voice in “Seele Brennt” suddenly switches from a barely audible whisper to a high-pitched scream, while quiet bass guitar overtones float over relatively restrained percussion in “Letztes Biest (am Himmel)“.
