    Damn fine pressing. Nice,heavy, and sounds great. The booklet is always appreciated. Even if the images aren't the highest quality or even as interesting as other Kraftwerk booklets. Very pretty color for the record to. I own the mispress that has a German cover but the record itself is in English. I don't mind, I'm more used to the English lyrics. Be wary if you want the German version however. Overall fantastic press besides that mishap.

    For the album itself I don't have much to say. Its pretty much the same opinion as many have.Its one of the weaker albums, not as cohesive. However calling it bad would be ridiculous, its still Kraftwerk. I would even argue that the entire A side is one of the best things the group has made. Its cold, has uncanny robot voices, and it absolutely bangs. Telephone call and House Phone are great to. Not huge on the last 2 tracks sadly. I think the slap bass on "Sex Object" gives away what year this was made in. The lyrics are interesting (esp for Kraftwerk), but I just find the song a little goofy. As for Electric Cafe, it simply has never clicked for me. That is just me though, and there's a good chance you'll love it.

    Overall, yeah I recommend. Good album and excellent pressing.

      As with most Kraftwerk releases on Kling Klang, this one sounds excellent. The original barcode has been covered up for this release, and the LP is dated 2009. I'm playing this on a Stanton 680 HP and every track has the punch of a high quality 12" single. You'll be happy with this edition for sure

        Just received my copy from Bull Moose Music in Maine. Nice copy. Clean, flat, low noise. Great punch. Sounds great!

          My first and favourite album. I know others are more popular and I know this is not as good as Computer World but it takes me back to being 16 years and putting it on at home or at friends. They all liked U2 and hated it. That made it even better,
