Also I've been listening through the Kraftwerk 3D Katalog thing that's come out and there's some excellent new versions of old tracks on there. The entire Autobahn album was incredibly well done for one, and multiple highlights over the next three LPs too. It's only when I got to Computerwelt that things stopped impressing me quite so much. It still sounded great, and the songs are great, but that album in particular felt like there was little added and so a little pointless to me. A shame also that Der Telefon Anruf is missing the vocals, but maybe it was "too Karl" for him :wink:

A little pointless sounds a little apt- are these more re-recordings, like The Mix, but closer to the original versions?

I've put a request in to my son for the new Charlatans album for fathers day. I really enjoyed their last album.

yes pretty much, although a few more "modern" ideas chucked in here and there, even on the Tour de France album. Vitamin sounds a fair bit different for example, but the first four discs are probably the best as I say.

I've recently got the new Charlotte Hatherley album "True Love" which is pretty groovy. Much more ethereal and synthy than her earlier stuff, evoking a Blade Runner kind of atmosphere. Recommended.

Also I've been listening through the Kraftwerk 3D Katalog thing that's come out and there's some excellent new versions of old tracks on there.

Interesting. Hoping to see them next weekend.

Completely agree - some brilliant new versions, some pointless soundalike re-recordings. Stuff like Airwaves, Showroom Dummies, Sex Object sounding brilliant. Computer Love, Music Non-Stop, The Robots sound the same they have done for the past 25 years on The Mix, Minimum-Maximum and in concert.

Really? I love Kraftwerks music but Kraftwerk live?

Watching 4 fat bald geezers press buttons on laptops sounds really exciting. Jeez I'd rather go and watch 4 fat bald geezers paint a wall, I'm kinky like that.
