5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect., 24 Nov 2000

Mr. A. Pomeroy (Wiltshire, England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Die Mensch-Maschine (Audio CD)
Essentially, it's 'The Man Machine' but in German (the music is identical). This means that 'The Model' scans and rhymes properly, but at the same time 'Neon Lights' isn't quite as effective, as the fragile vocal delivery of the English version is lost. And that's it, really. It's neither better nor worse than the English version - the German delivery perhaps makes it more 'authentic', but less of a singalong-knees-up, unless you speak German. Note that 'Radioactivity', 'Electric Cafe' and 'Computer World' were also Germanified in this way, and indeed 'Cafe' was Spanishified too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronic music and German singing, a match made in heaven, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A classic album that seems much better in German. German seems a more appropriate language as it's harsh sounds seems to compliment the electronic music in a way that English doesn't quite achieve.
