4.0 out of 5 stars I like it, 28 Nov 2003
This review is from: Tour De France (Audio CD)
Nice to see what Kraftwerk's capable of with the CD-format. Usually we're used to 30-40 minute albums, but this time we get almost a full hour of music.
I know alot of people were sceptic about this CD release, but it delivers. It's got alot of old-skool sound to it, though modern. I would almost call this album "Modern Computer World", as I keep hearing the sounds of "Computer World" here and there on this album, especially on "Chrono" which basicly's a new version of "Home Computer".
Then there's the old-skool styled "Vitamin", which has Kraftwerk all over it. Followed by the more dance-friendly "Aéro Dynamik" (which Kraftwerk did live at MTV's EMA 2003) and "Titanium", both praticular comes ready for discoteques as they are. Part from the occasional word spoken, these two songs are some of the best monotonous instrumentals by Kraftwerk, IMO.
Then there's "La Forme", which will leave everybody humming "mm-mm-um-mm um-mm-mm-um-mm", and the brilliant "Elektro Kardiogramm".
To me it sounds like this album was carefully done as not to scare off the old fans (like me), but at the same time appealing to younger people. So, if you like the other Kraftwerk albums, no need to be scared of modern times, "Tour De France Soundtracks" fit right in. The only thing missing is the brilliance of Karl Bartos.
