“Halber Mensch” (or “½ Mensch”; English: Half Man) is the third studio album by German industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten. It was released on 2 September 1985, through record label Some Bizzare Records.
“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)”.
