    Great you got to see them Rich.

    Not sure if you have a copy of the new 3D live album they have just released but i would recommend you check it out. The recording is superb and really captures their live performance extremely well.

    Good review J,Mrs O got us tickets for the Brighton concert last week as my birthday treat,seems they have had a few technical problems though,sound was in sync but 2 of the robots were not working,3D was impressive as we sat dead center just below the projector,most enjoyable evening though.

    Nice write up James. That's really wetted my appetite.

    One of my mates who was with me at the Birmingham gig is also going to the Albert Hall gig next week.

    Hope you enjoy.

    The gig was amazing - I can't really add to your review and concur that the 2 hours just flew by.

    I took my son (20) and a friend (25).....both of them thought it was stunning.

    I saw the Kraftwerk previously in Nottingham in the early 80s, and then again in 2004 in Budapest which was recorded for the Minimum Maximum LP.

    In my opinion a unique talent.

    yes missed kraftwerk becuase could not get a ticket , funnily enough i was there a few weeks ago with roger hodgson of supertramp and they were dancing in the last song in the stalls to `its raining again` whirling brollies etc

    Talking of which - the sound recording on the 3D live albums is stunning - I have the vinyl and the pressing, album art quality and production is simply wonderful. Definitely audiophile electronica!

    I totally agree with this, stunning audio quality, great box set, the artwork on each sleeve just sets it off perfectly.
