3 stars 2003 was the year I discovered Kraftwerk and I still remember it like it was yesterday. After listening to albums like Autobahn and The Man-Machine I was totally blown away by the news of a new album release by these innovators of the electronic music!

Well it's safe to say that Kraftwerk was back and the music was better than ever! I loved this album the first few times I've listened to it but that effect started to wear off by the end of the first week. There is nothing really wrong with the album, first half is awesome but it gets a bit repetitive and tiresome towards the end.

All in all a great comeback but by 2003 standards this release can't be considered progressive due to the innovations that the genre had undergone during those last couple of years. If anything Tour De France - Soundtracks sounded more like Kraftwerk trying to catch up to the new musical standards which they surely did but without breaking any new ground.
