The double CD includes a medley from the early 1970’s albums which the band never speaks about; an over 10-minute “Autobahn” and other tracks from the album; remarkable re-imaginings of “Radio-Activity” and “Europe Endless”; pieces from “The Man Machine”, “Computer World” and “Electric Cafe”.There are original pastiche tracks about ekranoplans, airships, pocket calculators and analog synthesizers.There are guest vocalists including Hayley Williams from Heaven 17 & Soft Cell and a light operatic male/female duo.There’s A LOT of vocoder and computer generated speech. Then there are striking cover versions which Kraftwerk may have created in some alternate timeline – covers of Kate Bush, Cameo, Electric Six, Fad Gadget and PJ Harvey. “Computer Love” in French, tracks for Stylophone and Casio VL1, laptops speaking Welsh – it’s a whole universe of alternate Kraftwerks. With a complete equipment list inside the gatefold sleeve, it’s over two hours of Krafty entertainment.
