The Oriental Computer is another nice recording from the 1981 Computertour. It is an audience recording but it has been nicely remastered. So the soundquality is ok (6/10) but not as good as a soundboard recording. The performance of the songs is fantastic, especially the last three songs are incredible, you can hear all the fans clapping their hands in the rhythm. But the first five minutes of the track Numbers are only the pre-show-sounds, which are in my opinion too long. If you are collacting Kraftwerk live recordings, this one is recommendable, but there are some better soundquality recordings on Computers in Love or Virtu ex Machina. This recording is also incomplete: Computer Love, Homecomputer, Neon Lights, Autobahn, Voice Of Energy, Ohm Sweet Ohm and Hall Of Mirrors are missing.
