5.0 out of 5 stars Maximum effect 6 Dec 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At last. Film of Kraftwerk in concert from their recent world tour, spread over 2 DVDs, and it doesn't come much better than this. Right from the opening of "Man Machine" when the curtains part to reveal the four standing in black suits at keyboard/PC terminals, bathed in red light, the crowd go wild. As the lyrics come in, the back projections, sometimes three separate screens, sometimes joined together as one, spring to life with simple but stunning graphics. No where is this more beautifully demonstrated than "Vitamin", where the group are backed by a huge display of CGI tablets dropping slowly from the heavens, or a huge white Vitamin tablet twisting and panning across the screen. Other songs are accompanied by some of their older, less fancy, films, such as the 1950s black and white haute couture film used for "The Model", or the old Tour de France footage which we've seen before on previous tours. Rather than just film the concert, images of the projections alone are often cut in seamlessly to the concert footage, or overlayed on top of the concert shots (again, "Vitamin" scores heavily with the pills seeming to tumble out of the TV screen toward the viewer at the end). The "Computer World" segment is probably the highlight of the set, with a great discordant "Numbers" and a rousing "Pocket Calculator/Dentaku". German humnour is evident in the trail of flashings white LEDs now apparent on the Kraftwerk black ties.
After an encore of "The Robots" featuring, as ever, Kraftwerk's favourite toys, (though close-ups reveal the paint now chipping off here and there), back come the band in fluorescent gridded cycle wear for a storming finale, ending with a blinding "Music Non Stop" which features those animated and rather creepy "Electric Cafe" faces.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wait Is Over! 12 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
Kraftwerk - Minimum - Maximum (EMI DVD 336 2949)
For a long time one of the most enigmatic, charismatic and musically adventurous bands in the history of electronic/rock/dance music, the German band Kraftwerk have recently been enjoying something of a purple patch. After many long years of silence they released an album of new material, toured the world, released a double live album and now we have the double DVD package recording the exceptional performances from that world tour. I think it is fair to say that Kraftwerk are probably the most static performers in the history of rock, standing behind their keyboard/laptop stands and barely moving for the two hours of the gig - and yet, thanks to a dynamic light and video show projected on three huge screens behind them the four members of the band offer a powerful show that put most other bands to shame. This double DVD contains twenty tracks - a lot of old classics such as The Man Machine, Radio Activity, Autobahn, The Model, Computer World, Numbers, Trans Europe Express, and the audience pleasing The Robots. And then there is the new material, Tour De France 03, Vitamin, Elecktro Kardiogramm and Aero Dynamik. An introduction and greatest hits rolled into one excellent package, this DVD set [and the audio CD set too] confirm that Kraftwerk are one of popular music's greatest innovators.

5.0 out of 5 stars This really shouldn't work, but...... 4 April 2006
By chrispy
Format:DVD
4 middle aged men standing in front of laptops - almost motionless. This really should not work as a Live DVD, but there is just something about it that makes me return to it over and over again.
The sound is excellent, the colours are intense, and there is a formality and minimality to the video direction that perfectly compliments the music.
And, best of all - you even get a track performed by the legendary Kraftwerk Robots.
You only have to watch the MTV live bonus track (with swooping cameras) to realise what a work of genius this Live DVD is.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live dvd ive ever seen 12 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
I saw kraftwerk at brixton academy on this tour and it was probably the best gig ive ever been to and ive been to over 200 gigs, the sound quality was unbelievable you could see the sound, i think this dvd is produced very well and the concert is very artistic, i think some of the other reviewers misunderstand kraftwerk they are hard to get into prperly ive been into them for about 5 years and am only just understanding how unbelieveably great they are, i think it was also filmed very well and would advise any fans of kraftwerk to buy it, it is a very visual and artistic dvd with exceptional sound quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 4 April 2006
Format:DVD
Jaw droppingly good! I can't state how good this DVD is! As a fan who saw Kraftwerk perform in Manchester a couple of years ago, the DVD really puts across the excitement and technical achievements of the concert in full 5.1dts glory! For those with a 5.1 system, this disc is a marvel to listen to, unbelievable bass and crisp high end, coupled with a good clean image of the concert! This is a must buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kraftwerk-Minumum Movement 5 Feb 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Really I should have gone to see them at the London concert, but didn't so this DVD was a welcome if unexpected issue.
What do you get? Well a sort of greatest hits programme plus four new titles all in marvellous DTS 5.1 sound unequalled anywhere on CD. Visually a bit dissapointing with four elderly chaps (just about recognisable) standing in a line behind their computer consoles turning switches- reinforced by some half decent graphics which made it hard to generate any audience excitement.
But what did I expect? This is Kraftwerk!!! Long may they reign!!!

I wouldn't have been able to see all of the performances. I would have been happier if the video art was available without the stage show, but that wasn't likely.
