This 1991 Kraftwerk collection of often drastically remixed "greatest hits" offers a good, if slightly skewed, overview of the Dusseldorf legends' career. Inspired by the band's continuing influence on modern pop, dance, and techno, founders Florian Schneider and Ralf Hutter tweak Kraftwerk's sonic foundations with the intention of making their music more club-friendly. While some of the faithful have lamented the tinkering, The Mix presents a distinct, typically idiosyncratic take on modern club music. It also represents the way Kraftwerk usually sounds in their infrequent live forays; witness the reworking of "Radioactivity" into an unexpected (the band has been notably apolitical) antinuclear statement aimed largely at Britain's Sellafield installation. The Mix bows to trend in concept only; the execution is pure Kraftwerk. --Jerry McCulley
Superb Music !!
Superb Condition. Excellent quality of music. Perfect packing and forwarding. Got in perfect condition. Cheers.. Recommendable to others defenitely !!
Better version of previous songs, and more UPBEAT
Kraftwerk made good music better with this THE MIX cd. All of the songs on this CD can be considered "best hits" except that they have been made more upbeat, better recorded (clear) and the pluse loud. If you need a sampler of Kraftwerk music, this is the place to start. The songs play well on headphones, and you can dance to them.
It's More Fun To Compute
As the 90's were opening up as a musical decade, many of the artists of the time were openly acknowledging their debt to Kraftwerk. Be it the fresh wave of Electronica or sample-happy hip-hoppers, Kraftwerk music was being exposed as a root source. So Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider did what any good forbearer would do, and that was compile some of their most influential tracks.
