Either the 12" or the album - they are pretty much the same aren't they?

The original 83 single (and the best, IMO) version was remixed / re-released in 84.
Fearful re-recording on the TDF album in 2003.

Ja ja

This came on my mp3 player on random play the other day and I hadn't a clue what it was until I checked. It's wonderful.

I'll go for:

Favorite tracks?

I know I'll get raked over the coals for saying it, but I truly don't get how anyone listens to this stuff for pleasure. I mean I get all f the arguments about their influence and can certainly give them their credit on that score (unless it is takn to a foolish extreme - such as last month when it was argued here that they eclipse Ray Charles in influence). But I don't get why their actual music is so beloved in these quarters - then again folks here love Yes, Genesis, King Crimson and Jethro Tull - so I suppose I should not be shocked.

I can learn to accept that people like things that have absolutely no appeal to me. But am I 100% alone in this? Is there a single BCBer other than me who doesn't rate these guys?

Always a favourite band of mine and I count myself very lucky to have seen their Autobahn & Computer World tours. A top 3 is very difficult, but these sprung immediately to mind:

Europe Endless.
Kometenmelodie 2.
Autobahn. (original album version)
