I agree with LL in that after getting stuff from the KRS top 50 you have to tread a bit more carefully. There are many gems to discover after Can, Neu, Faust, Ash Ra Tempel, Cluster, Tangerine Dream, early Guru Guru and some Amon Duul. But sometimes you are going unearth something best left buried (particularly be careful with the more heavy rock stuff). The first Gila & Agitation Free are classics as is Brain Ticket, Organisation and Emtidi's Saat. Others are quite good like Out Of Focus, Achim Reichel, Dzyan. I also find Popul Vuh a bit hit and miss.

The Kraut records I am still after are German Oak, Code III and Sand (I would also like to hear The Necromonicon album). After that I am not sure as I have bought some 2nd and 3rd division Kraut which was disapointing and a depressing waste of money -like Message, Janus (not strictly Kraut), Birth Control, Nosferatu. Others mediocre like Embryo, also Tarot is good as background music but don't expect it to overwhelm you.
