3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but flawed, 14 Aug 2010
This is essentially a series of essays about the various bands, labels and influential figures involved in all things Kraut. As that, it's a very enjoyable and a pretty decent introduction to Krautrock, especially for those interested in finding out a bit more than the usual Can/Neu/Tangerine Dream/Kraftwerk/Faust spiel that bands and journalists are all too eager to mention when in need of a "cool" reference point.

It would have been a four star book, but I'm deducting one star because there's a few factual errors in it and some essays appear to have been published without being checked by a proof reader. Doh!

2.0 out of 5 stars Yet another missed oportunity, 15 Nov 2006
This review is from: U218 Singles (Audio CD)
It should have been so simple - U2 put out a collection of all their singles on one compilation. But as with the previous 2 collections (covering the 80s and 90s) there's some significant ommisions. I know it's impossible to put all their singles on one CD, but this compilation is being mis-sold as having "all the hits on one album". If that's the case then where are hits such as The Fly, Unforgettable Fire, Wild Horses, Discotheque, Fire... I could go on.

And when are they going to put genuine hard to find singles like A Celebration on an anthology?!

Great songs - shoddy compilation.
