"The Working Model" was the first, and by many considered the best, album by Holger Wobker and his gunmen. It spawned the biggest hit of Boytronic's career with "You" (they made appearances on several "mainstream" TV shows back in the day). While I too am fond of the naïve, but effective simplicity of "You", there are other standout tracks on the album, and even more on this re-release, complete with remastered sound and several bonus tracks. My all time Boytronic fave, "Luna Square", sounds better than ever and so do many of the other bits and pieces of history on my nostalgic walk down memory lane. "Diamonds & Loving Arms", "At Last", "My Baby Lost Its Way". They are all cruel reminders of the illusiveness of time, but at the same time a vibrant wake up call to today's synthpop scene. The bonus material will please even some of the most devoted fans, as the much sought-for non-album tracks "Hurts", "Trigger Track", "Goodbye", "Bryllyant" and, especially, "Late Night Satellite" are all on here. As an added favour, Strange Ways has decided to include three previously unreleased tracks from the 1983-or-so era as well, all written by Wobker (the song writing duties at the time were usually left to Peter Sawatzki). They aren't as good as the original album material, a bit too much on the cheesy side, but overall this is a synthpop mile stone. And I hear this could be the start of further re-releases of old Boytronic works. "

"One of the best double cd of the last 2 years is titled MAXI from the german heroes of electropop BOYTRONIC, that is because we need to put on the web the review of one of the most played release of 2005. We know that are several bands that have made of the new wave linked to the electronic their best way to show their quality since the eighties, like this Hamburg band.
a compilation of all the 12 inches with some mixes of those classics, 2CD is the format chosen by the band (after the released titled 'Autotunes' from 2002) In the first cd (black) appears the remixes of their first five years (until 1988) -all dance club- between them the top are: 'Triggertrack' (bside in 1984 and single in 1989) and 'Man In A Uniform' (beautiful track of genious variations inside, single from 1984 that appeared in THE CONTINENTAL LP).MAXI starts with the 1983 cult classic 'You' song that made me remember to their singer and keyboardist jumping in that videoclip of Formel Eins. I need to say that for me the best track of the release is the nostalgic "Diamonds & Loving Arms", with a sentimental vocal participation of ..Another great tunes from the first cd are 'Hurts' and 'Brylliant' keep the same style, both from 1986, while the last one appears as b side of the rerelease of their first single in that year too. For 'Heroin' se aprecia otra tonalidad vocal mientras que en 'Communicate' se aprecia el típico sonido europeo de fines de los ochentas, con algunos tintes de guitarras. The orange cd is opened by four tracks recorded in 2004 in Hamburg, like the feeling 'Am Tag Als Der Regen Kam' (Dalida's cover) and 'This is Where I Came From'. All the songs are into the electro pop with some synth tunes, like the next tracks, new remixes of old tracks like 'Luna Square', 'Triggertrack' and the live version of 'You' (more electro) and the versions of 'Hold On' (original song from 1985) and another of 'You', this last made by the french CELULLOIDE. That's right, this release is a must fan for all the electro lovers. !!!!!!!!!!!!!
