2 stars The Mix is the other Kraftwerk album that I had put off due to knowing that I would find it to be bad. It is bad, but it's also better than Electric Cafe. This is basically a remix album, full of remixes of classic tracks that have been turned into cold, robotic, dance-pop. Though, since these are remixes, they still retain a lightly classic sound. However, loving the original versions of the tracks on this album do not mean that these remixes will be of any enjoyment. The best way that I can describe the sound of the music on this album is taking classic Kraftwerk tracks and adding an unmistakable and unwelcome tinge of the '80s for no clear reason. Apparently the purpose of this album was to show to the public that Kraftwerk were not defunct, which is probably all it did.

This album is very sad, and I was very sad while I was listening to it. Fortunately, the next album, Tour de France, would take the new modern sound of electronic music and make is sound good. The Mix and Electric Cafe are albums of a short period of darkness in Kraftwerk's discography before they would eventually release a terrific album.
