Minimum Maximum

I have listened to Kraftwerks new live album “Minimum Maximum” a couple of times now. It iis really good, or at least OK, but they shouldn't have:
  1. used organ sounds (But still, an improvement. Someone seems to have selected the recordings where Ralf has kept a lid on it. The organ, that is. The Kraftwerk concerts in recents years has been massively organ heavy).
  2. joked around with the singing computer voice in "Numbers". In fact, they sohuld have refrained from fiddling around with any filters and effects whatsoever.
  3. Questioned themselves by playing "Planet of Visions", since this basically is the DJ Rolando/Underground Resistance version of "Expo 2000" and thereby sadly a better song than Kraftwerk themselves has managed to create during the last 20 years.
