Bought 'Wintermusik' with my xmas money and immediately fell in love with it. I think the Bells will be a bit more accessible (no 20min songs!) and I think that'll be very welcome to these ears.
Might buy it for that alone!
There's no bass!
One week to wait! Good review - and I say that having not heard the record - really whets your appetite for it.
That promo artwork is incredible! Why they'd choose instead the tired minimalist cover is beyond me.

Let's Wrestle's came close...surely gonna be in the DiS top 4, no?
or print it out and hide it in my MPP sleeve so that I might forget about it and rediscover it in twenty years time to remind me why I liked the record. LOVE IT.
That is all.
more Frenchness please!
but I managed to rip the video (sadly only the audio worked...) but did manage to convert it to a decent mp3. People can PM me if they want a copy.
Great selection and brilliantly informative.
These reviews have been excellent.
I've always thought however that Tour de France Soundtracks would be the one record that didn't really need updating -- it sounds pretty damn fresh already. Has it been improved?
Another great review (another genius record).
I wasn't going to get this remaster.....but now I must! The thought of the "flowing electro-symphony of perfect overlapping repetitions" (nice work there) at the end of 'Neonlicht' sounding BETTER is just too intriguing.
what I want to know are the differences between the remastered and the original records - are they palpable, are they an improvement? Knowing Kraftwerk, they probably are, but should that not be discussed in a review of a remastered record?
heard any of the songs when they played them live? What are they like?
how they've completely changed the artwork for the releases - they're as iconic as the music itself. But then I like the new Autobahn artwork because it reminds me of the infinite roadsigns we'd drive past on the way to go skiing in Austria.
Never really given O.K. Cowboy a proper spin, but know La Rock 01. On the surface, Flashmob sounds a bit better than his debut! HUGE sound.
This is a near-perfect simile.
asking about a PiL reunion that made Lydon tell his cronies to beat him up, wasn't it?
truly does sound like the Rite of Spring played on anything and everything, especially the ending.
makes me want to go even more.
'West Germany?' Is Germany not unified? If you're talking about its geographical location, it's in East Germany.
and they blew my mind. I bought their record called 'Fan' which is 34 mins of looped build-up. I tried to eat my dinner with it on but I could do nothing other than tap my foot and nod my head like a nodding dog. Amazing.
I always thought this band was KAZALS -- the awful, awful people at the end of Kitsuné 5. This is a welcome surprise. Last time I heard Rory was in Rat:att:agg or whatever it was called. Had no idea he had a new project.
The single of the week always seems to be a choice cut. This week's reminds me, encouragingly, of DFA 1979. Also These New Puritans a little, especially the ending.
Excellent band, excellent album.
Sept looking like a good month as Turzi's 2nd album is out then too.
This is going to become a catchphrase - I can just see it. You've created a monster! (Raaar, etc.) .........god help me.
Been looking forward to this for a bit - didn't realise it was out so soon. Seems as if it might echo my mood then, as a recent jobless graduate....goodie.
is a great picture!! The lights look like fire in a great contrast to the water.
on Spotify - sounding good, particularly Blue Lips, but I can't help singing: Blue Lips, Dabudee Dabudai etc.
they're playing Bestival. Score.
I'll have a mosey done to Rough Trade on the morrow then.
I want the 7" though. Any ideas where I can find it? It's not listed on the big London record stores mail order, and I can't seem to find the label - anyone in the know?
it would be a polar bear with a wig which comes close - if not identical - to Seb Rochford's hair. See what I did there?
should be "nay." Unless you're Scottish :-)
Mos Def was also in 'Be Kind, Rewind' which is one of my favourite films ever. The only film I've gone to see at the cinema twice.
Heard them do a session on 6music and they seemed nice and had great harmonies. Remember a song with a catchy synth/organ riff - guessing it's on the album.
The one thing that's putting me off buying it though is that the artwork reminds me of Ronson's album. (Awful I know, but everything counts...)
chuckle chuckle chuckle.
on Kate Moross.
maybe it's just me then...
one of my favourite releases of the year so far. Love it. Cannot understand the criticisms it's been getting in reviews; it's sooooooo much better than the first.
Their Scala gig was phenomenal as well, one of the best I've been to (apart from Bjork or course).
is one of DiS's 'Greatest Hits'???????????
fuck my dissertation. I'm on this.
