Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Ankeny
Although there are three original compositions, including the title track, featured here, the majority of Possessed is made up of string quartet remakes of Kraftwerk songs. Given that the precision of the German electronic band's songs bear no small resemblance to Baroque classicism, the Balanescu Quartet needs to do little to make their covers work than to play them straight.

    A different twist on Kraftwerk

    I intially brought some scepticism to this project, but since I enjoyed modern classical quartets and Kraftwerk, I took a chance and I'm glad I did. While this isn't essential for Kraftwerk fans, it is quite good. Kraftwerk's material has always been full of subversive melodies, and they are emphasized here.
