2 stars So yeah, this is a combination of their two self-titled albums, which were very good pieces of krautrock (not electronica yet). My reviews on both self-titled albums tell everything i feel towards this very interesting side of the band, so i can't add much here.

Okay, i know i'm looking like someone who doesn't have a life and keeps collecting reviews by making this pointless one, but i do have a point in this particular compilation: get the albums individually, and not the way they are here. Why? Because listening to both in a row can be a monotonous or simply just a plain awful experience (both are very experimental and inacesible) if you're not used to this initial KRAFTWERK approach. But, if you are a fan of this kind of music (as i am), maybe you'll find it interesting to listen to all in a row, and challenge yourself, since there's honestly no such a thing as "bad music" here, i mean, this is music to travel through, and if you can stand/love the 18-minute freak fest "Augmn" on CAN's Tago Mago right followed by a 10-minute freak supreme "Pekin O" you may find this quite catchy.

I want to make it clear that the two stars don't reflect the album's musical quality - which is pretty great IMHO. This is only for collectors, as you should get the albums individually to enjoy them in a better way and avoid a monotonous experience if you are new to this band's unique world.
