1: 8min+ track missing, 2: 4min Singles added ? ?
on 13 October 2009
I have always enjoyed the album 'Electric Cafe' of which this one is to replaced, with its original title re-instated back to Techno Pop. To me the sound is a bit compressed and loud compared to the original Cd, but the strangest thing is this 'so called extra track', at least on the artwork that is what there appears to be, but not really! For some crazy reason Kraftwerk have replaced the original 'The Telephone Call' with I think the A and B side singles: The Telephone Call/Home Phone - 'Home Phone' is just a different remixed version of the second half of 'The Telephone Call' clever marketing maybe, but IMO the original Telephone Call is great the way it is and these single edits should have been saved for a Singles/Greatest Hits/Rarities type compilation, sound issues aside it is still nice to have the single mixes available at the mo on Cd, so if you already have 'Electric Cafe' keep it or seek out a 2nd hand copy if you don't have it, don't buy this to replace the original 'Electric Cafe' Cd/Album because The Telephone Call is nowhere near as good on 'Techno Pop' as the original album version and is totally different IMO.
