Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Techno Pop (Audio CD)
i remember buying the vinyl in 86.it was slated by the press and fans alike.i thought it was the most impressive thing i had heard.from the opening boing boom tschak,to the brilliant electric cafe it has it all.sound is impressive like all the kraftwerk re-releases,sounds ive never heard from the album or previous cd releases are apparent here.however the change of name and inclusion of a benign track(house phone)are sadly a bit of meglomania on hutters part.well worth buying though.still sounds great in todays music enviroment and will never date,or maybe sex object will,lol.as i couldnt stop laughing how dated it did sound.all in all a great album,short and to the point.long live the robots!

If I remember correctly, the track 'House Phone' was on the flipside of the 'Telephone Call' vinyl 12 inch. I've always wanted to get the track on CD and was, therefore, very pleased indeed to find that it would be included on this new version of the album. However, I was not pleased to discover that (to make room for it) the excellent 'Telephone Call' track itself, would be reduced from 8 minutes duration to less than 4 minutes! Just my opinion but I would have liked both the 8 minute version of 'Telephone Call' and 'House Phone' on this album. The awful 'Sex Object' could have been dropped altogether. Sorry Ralf.

Very good, but please tell me who is the moron who wants to charge nearly £ 50 for this particular cd ?, it don't matter how rare it is. It is taking the p**s.
