3 stars On the Mix, Kraftwork does a worthy rework of a selection of classic tracks. While not everything benefits from the treatment, most songs do. And fear not. The 're-mixes' remain quite faithful to the originals.

An obvious change is a stronger emphasis on the beat. As I've pointed out before, some of the original recordings just screamed for a bit more oomph in that department and here they fixed that. Not that it comes close to a 'car-tuning-beats' treatment. They strived for a good balance between the original mood and feel of the songs and a slightly updated sound. Especially Autobahn and Radioactivity are improved by it and surpass their originals with ease.

Other treatments such as Homecomputer tend to overindulge and make the tracks too long. Overall a good addition for the fans.
