Frankly, I can't think of anything more offensive to music than this. Man, what a pile. This release is so diabolical that I feel wasting a paragraph on it wouldn't be worth the time you took to read it. Looking back, did anybody really enjoy Kraftwerk? I didn't think so. So you'd think no one would want to lionize the outlandish German's electronic bunkum with a half-arse tribute, would you? You'd be damn wrong my friends. Unless you are one major fan of the aforementioned German pioneers (yeah, right) you'll really find little to enjoy here. Bleepy synths, shooting pads, electronic drums and battering techno beats practically mar the entire running time; and when those wondering vocals come in - be somewhere else. This is a world full of sophisticated musicians and bands with so much to say, so much potential to educate and stimulate their audience. I'm afraid all Von Südenfed do is alienate them.
