very nice.

didnt fancy the last track though (new version of the original tour de france).

why don't they release the 3 new tracks they played at ZKM Karlsruhe '97

i have the bootleg live cd, but i want a clean, tasty listen, without the annoying audience cheers!

I can't wait for it-released here on August 29.

Yes I agree those 3 unreleased tracks from 1997 are some of my favourite Kraftwerk tracks-Distant Voices,Lichthof and Nummweltverschmutzung.

Very dark and so trance like.

I have it.

First impressions-I was so excited that I was able to buy a new Kraftwerk album for only the secnd time in my life!

I love the 3x Tour de France at the beginning.
And Aero Dynamik is great.Pure techno funkiness.
I remember when alot of records use to make me feel like this.Wonderful.

The other tracks I'm not so sure yet.I need more time.
It is certainly Kraftwerk's most dark album-no beautiful melodies as such and no tracks that sound like the three I mentioned above from thir 1997 tour.
And it would be nice if they could lay off the vocoder a bit.
Still it is interesting and thank god they are back.
