EDITORS’ NOTES

Culled from a tour performing their classic LPs accompanied by three-dimensional visuals, this mammoth live compendium puts a sleek, streamlined spin on Kraftwerk’s catalog, rendering eight beloved albums in a cohesive electronic palette. “Autobahn” is built around minimalist chimes far cleaner and brighter than the sound of the 1974 version; the chugging rhythm and gliding melody of “Trans Europe Express” are a bit smoother than the original. And when interweaving songs into clever medleys—as they do with “Numbers” and “Computer World”—they put a tantalizing twist into their electro déjà vu.

Thank you Kraftwerk and ITunes!!

Anyone thinking of purchasing this is probably already familiar with Kraftwerk's music, so I won't go into that. We all know how great it is. This new re-release is well worth it for it's more immersive "3-D" surround sound. I happen to be a headphone enthusiast also, so this is borderline euphoric for me. Any hi-res headphones will bring these songs to life... the slight reverberation will make you feel like you're in a concert hall. This is a great collection of tracks for listening on long flights, or long walks, or workouts, or when just relaxing at home, or when wanting to just zone out... whatever and wherever, you can't go wrong, especially if you're a fan. Many of the songs have been slightly reworked and, in my opinion, upgraded. The metal on metal breakdown on TEE, showroom dummies, hall of mirrors, radioactivity, It's more fun to compute, man machine, numbers... all give me eargasms.

You’re missing the 1983 single

From the samples I’ve heard within this album, everything sounds great and upgraded. Kraftwerk still has it together. There’s just one small minor detail. I would like to have heard what they would have done with they’re 1983 single Tour de France. This one isn’t in there. They play a little bit of the 1983 song, then fast forward to 2003‘s version. All in all, everything here sounds wonderful.
