>>61619740 Depends on the album. I wish I had a hard copy of the German TEE, even if only because "Showroom Dummies" just does not sound good in English. On the other hand I feel Computerworld sounds better in English because, iirc, the vocals are mixed a little too loud for my tastes in the German release. The Man Machine sounds just fine in both languages, in my opinion. However, some early CD issues of The Man Machine in English have some glitches/errors that are noticeable when listening on headphones. This prompted me to track down a German language CD pressed in 1993, and it was worth it.
>>61619965 They're not comparable, retard, because at least with film, when you watch something in a foreign language, you can read subtitles along with the film. It's not really possible to do that with music, unless someone makes videos with subtitles synced to the vocals, but then, you're just watching a video, not strictly listening to music.
While their initial albums featured mostly German lyrics, in 1975 Kraftwerk began writing lyrics that combined both German and English verses. Beginning with "Trans-Europe Express" (1977), most songs by the group have been created as duplicate versions sung in English or German. Additional versions sung in French, Japanese, Italian or Spanish have also sometimes been made.
They are not dubs and there is no 'original German version'
