Kraftwerk have been ahead of their time since they started recording in 1971, and this record proves it. It was 17 years since the release of Electric Café, and the boys returned to the recording studio for the 100th anniversary of the world's most grueling sporting event...And they capture the feeling of the race PERFECTLY. You can hear it in every subtle nuance of the first 5 tracks; The ticking cymbals that remind one of bike chains...The breathing of the racers...You can feel the speed and turns.

An album truly worth it for the first 5 tracks alone, but that's not to say that the rest of the album is a throw-away, no sir. "Vitamin" is a throw-back to classic 'Werk if there ever was one...Slow funky rhythm, awesome synth melody...Aero Dynamik & Titanium, like the first 5 tracks, slowly build into each other, and the remixed version of the original 1983 "Tour de France" is quite welcome here.

While not as groundbreaking as, say, Autobahn or Trans-Europe Express, this is an excellent addition to anyone's Kraftwerk collection, and album collection, period.

Lush, warm analogs. Some tracks comparable to Detroit techno of past, with the signature Kraftwerk style of vocals and melodies. IMO, this is some of the best electronic music released in the recent past. I don't understand why some say it was not worth the wait and disappointing, comparing it to kraftwerk's previous material (though I don't think it is that far off). This is Kraftwerk, and the year 2003. I don't understand how one can truly understand electronic music and say 'TDF Soundtracks' is disappointing, but we are all different.
