Much better in German!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
""ComputerWelt" is much better, when sung in German, by the way "TaschenRechner" or "ComputerLiebe" are more incisive. Words really change: in "ComputerWelt" they say: "FBI und Scotland Yard, Deutsche Bank und BKA haben unsere Daten da", while in "ComputerWorld" they say: "FBI and Scotland Yard, FBI and Scotland Yard".... that's a nonsense!! It's really a poor translation!!!! I would have translated it like: "FBI and Scotland Yard, Deutsche Bank and BKA have our data stored there" ore something like that... even the toy-voice you hear in the song says less words than the original version... I don't know why they always have to tranlate their songs..."
Only 4 stars because of the sound quality.

"It's always great to hear Kraftwerk's albums in German and many times, it's even better than the English versions. There are subtle differences in some songs such as Taschenrechner (Pocket Calculator). On the German version, you can actual hear the song end as it fades out. The English version fades before that point. On Numbers there is a slight difference immediately when the second voice starts counting in German and on It's More Fun To Compute", there is an extra sound a few seconds after the first chorus. The problem with the disc, or at least the one I have, is the sound quality. It sounds a little duller than the English version and the sound level is definately lower. I played them one after the other to compare and I had to raise the volume on the German version. Still, I always like to have both the German and English versions of Kraftwerk's CDs whenever possible and this is a great addition to my collection."
