the simplest way for me to put it is this way. They spent seven years from autobahn through computer world being able to see hear and shape musical evolution. and all the other accolades that go with that stature. as for electric cafe well debate its merits if you want but no is the final answer if its in the league of its predecessors. but i will take it any day over "the mix". beside the usual criticisms such as sacrilege and what was the point? ralf said to update klingklang to digital etc...but even forgiving the fact that it has no energy as a dance album and that its updating already influential tracks...sorry you missed again but way worse than electric cafe. and as they are revered to this very day for their influence then let it be just that. ralf seems to believe that the barely tweaked updates he takes on tour of what is still essentially the mix album performed live has enuf validity to keep the people who respect that influence just paying for a ticket to see the legends themselves . but only getting stale bread being reheated for us to break at the alter of ..." the mix"....martin rushent should get that credit instead for his work on love and dancing by the human league a.k.a league unlimited orchestra.

SO pleased that this was released on vinyl. For me, this is THE definitive Kraftwerk album--and I am well aware that there is no shortage of people who would disagree with me on that. Also, this was my first exposure to Kraftwerk in high school; I played this CD to hell and back. So take that with a grain of salt.

Regardless, this vinyl was such a long time coming. The emphasis is on DJ friendliness, with a dab of Detroit influence on the engineering style. The tracks include 909/808-ified mixes of The Robots, Radio-Activity, and other late 70's/early-mid 80's Kraftwerk tracks that were crowning achievements electronic music--but didn't necessarily go out of their way to be urban dance scene oriented.

Not that that's a good or a bad thing, it is what it is.

Be that as it may, this is a fantastic release and I'm thrilled that it has come out on wax.
