Most of this should have been left on the cutting room floor. Alphaville was a major musical influence for me and I'd argue some of their albums are timeless standards, but I have to say this collection was a big disappointment musically. Hardcore AV fans may find this collection of demos, remixed demos, and rough sounding live tracks to be valuable curiosity, with some rare insight to the origins of some wonderful songs. However, even the most devout would have a hard time actually to listening to one of these discs in a sitting. They are unpleasant, especially compared to their smooth new-wave and synth-pop productions like 'Forever Young' and 'Breathtaking Blue'.
