Kraftwerk - The Mix (2009) Retail CD
Five years silence saw Wolfgang Flur depart through a lack of activity,. And Bartos leave on the eve of the release of the unusual compilation "The Mix" : a virtual greatest hits that represented a lavish representation of the bands favourite and better known work, re-recorded and re-interpreted for the modern age with Fritz Hilpert on board and the re-arranged, re-thought material : in this post-modern foreshadowing of the modern age of nostalgia, Kraftwerk remixed themselves. To an extent this was the band staving off a creative paralysis with a digital re-interpretation of their own body ofmore… work. "The Robots" and "Radioactivity" were the lead singles - sounding timeless yet utterly timely, and most of the songs were no tired retread, but incorporated into them new melody lines, musical parts, lyrics, and melodies : "Radioactivity" ceased to be a hymn to the power of an FM transmitter, but a warning about the invisible hand of nuclear power, and a warning of the dangers of technology that had previously entranced. It was the perfect entry point for a new fan, and wisely eschewed some of the obvious songs such as "The Model", "Showroom Dummies" and "Tour De France" in favour of a valid and worthy collection that complimented the history : no mere lazy cash in.
The remastered sound improves the original release, but not in any radical way.
