Surely you jest!?

""Best of Kraftwerk", hah? Uh...yeah. So if this is a 'Best of Kraftwerk" comp, where's "Autobahn"? How about "Pocket Calculator"? "Numbers"? And what about those first three albums, hm? Ohhhhh..._I_ see...this is another one of those attempts by Capitol to cash in off of the three albums KW did there, which Capitol more or less ignored until later, when they were acclaimed as these important seminal works of techno and most anything electronic-driven and dance-oriented from the mid-80s on. You're best off getting the full albums, especially for the "Radioactivity" cuts, which are much better when heard in the context Messrs Hutter, Schneider, Bartos, and Flur intended them to be heard in. And someone at EMI/Capitol MegaConHugeCorp needs a boot to the head for this title, which borders on false advertising."

"This is a Japanese Import compilation from the three "Capitol" albums. Nothing of interest unless a "hard-core" fan."

"Just in case you're tempted to get this, it's a re-issue of the 1993 compilation of the same name, but with new artwork. Content is presented chronologically: from the "Radio Activity" album (featured are "Geiger Counter","Radioactivity" and "Antenna"); from the "Trans-Europe Express" album come "Europe Endless", "Showroom Dummies" and "Trans-Europe Express", while "The Robots", "The Model" and "The Man-Machine" are taken from the "The Man-Machine" album. All tracks are from the regular North-American releases (not the german ones...)"
