The G-Stone book is interesting and amusing to flip through, but there isn't a whole lot of substance to be found. The flimsy binding cannot support the size of the book. One should turn the pages *very* carefully so as not to destroy the binding, thus making it rather annoying to look through. There are, however, many interesting pictures within. The organization is pretty strange. I'm fairly sure that the book is totally bilingual, but all the written segments are presented in a sort of random order, so I can't be absolutely positive and everything written in English is represented in German and vise-versa. There is an interesting bit about the concept for the Peace Orchestra foldout picture and a couple first-hand accounts of K&D DJ sets.
The CD is a decent compilation of G-Stone artists. The standout tracks are, of course, from Kruder and Dorfmeister, Tosca, and Peace Orchestra, but the others are not bad either. With only 14 tracks, it is rather curious to find "Chocolate Elvis" appearing twice (in different mixes). It's also strange that 5 out of the 14 tracks are by Tosca. Again, not necessarily a bad thing - just strange. If you already own the bulk of K&D's respective output, there's not much here of interest. If you're new to G-Stone, the CD will be a nice introduction, but the $40+ price tag makes the purchase a bit of a risk.
This is really more of a scrapbook than anything else. If a Kruder and Dorfmeister scrapbook sounds good to you, then you'll dig this.
