Customer Review

on 4 December 2009
The reviews so far have pretty much said what there is to say about the remaster of Computer World, my favourite record of all time. The only gripe I had is the track Computer World itself, which has an odd "pumping" effect to it. Strangely, this isn't an issue on the German version. Furthermore, the German equivalent is amazing and really worth forking out for if you're a big fan. I hadn't checked out Computerwelt until quite recently because I assumed the only difference was, well, the language. However, if you look closely at the running times, they are slightly different, as are the mixes of most of the tracks. If you are just a casual fan of this album, you probably won't notice the differences but if, like me, you know every single bleep, loop, reverb, nook and cranny, the differences are quite noticeable. The vocoder on Computer World is a lot more spikey and the chorus has an extra vocal line on it. Pocket Calculator has an extra percussion effect and the mix is different in a number of places, including an alternative fade out. Numbers, Computer World 2 and Computer Love have slight alterations in the percussion and endings while Home Computer has a more cranked up rhythm section. In addition to all of this, the sound quality is even better than the English version. Again, if you're very familiar with the album, get Computerwelt. If not, Computer World will do fine. And is much better than Tubular Bells.
