8/10 Mark A Customer review, 28th May 2014

Brilliant liner notes by Karl himself allow us fascinating insights into how the music on this album came about. Based on unused melodies and long-lost rhythmic snippets gleaned from his time with Kraftwerk, this record is a tour-de-force of Bartos' skills as both percussionist and tunesmith. (Indeed it becomes clear that his role in that group was far from peripheral: former bandmates Schneider and Hütter may have been the conceptual overlords but it was Bartos who delivered much of the musicality.) Singing often, but not always, with a vocoder-like vocal treatment, our man from Düsseldorf delivers a sonically accomplished album of electro songs brimming with humour and pathos, stopping just short of dipping into self parody. In short, it's much better than you might expect.
