1 stars Sadly this is very poor compilation of Kraftwerk's earlier work. Released in 1975 the songs are also shortened to unexpected lengths which do the songs no justice. ' Ruckzack' for me is the best piece on this release and even the notorious ' Autobahn' has been shortened to an unnacceptable length.
