Format: 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.

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.

HASH(0x93a05450) out of 5 stars "Die Mensch Maschine" still holds up today 3 July 2002
By Roger Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kraftwerk has been often imitated, yet never duplicated. In today's age of lifeless electronic music, Kraftwerk's icy, almost stereotypically sterile Teutonic sound has, ironically, aged so well as to sound like a breath of fresh air in the 21st century.
"Die Mensch Maschine" doesn't revolve around a central theme as do some of their earlier albums, but is something of a commentary to the modern age (such as it was in the late 1970's) and the "constructionist" art movement (in particular, the late Soviet artist El Lissitzky).
This is the original German language recording, and frankly, doesn't vary in any appreciable way from the English language recording in any other regard. The outer space funk (is it possible that Kraftwerk are simply Parliament-Funkadelic from another dimension?) of "Die Roboter" and "Das Modell" are strong points, while the atmospheric "Neonlicht" gives you some breathing space before the angular finale of the title track. Whether you listen to it in German or English, fans of techno and electronic music can't go wrong here.

HASH(0x93a054b0) out of 5 stars A masterpiece from Germany 8 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Trotzdem die Platte toll ist, hier einige Anmerkungen: 1. viel zu teuer hier; gibt's bei anderen on-line Laeden billiger 2. auf der CD ist ein Fehler: bei "Das Modell" an der Stelle "hat hier alle Maenner abgecheckt" ist die stimme ploetzlich zu laut. Dieser Fehler ist auf der Schallplatte nicht zu hoeren!
Ansonsten: mit "Computerwelt" sicherlich Kraftwerks bestes Werk.

HASH(0x93a05684) out of 5 stars Original language 21 Mar. 2014
By Gary E. Seavey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My brother introduced me to Kraftwerk years ago. While stationed in Germany bought LP's in German. Glad for the chance to re-acquire their music on CD.
HASH(0x93a05588) out of 5 stars Lot of bass! 18 July 2014
By audiophile Seb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Nice restoration, lot of bass, sometimes to much, very low background noise, not as crisp as the original but more listenable. Masterpiece!
