    Even if A Collection is by the numbers, they are great numbers and rounded out by some intriguing collaborations (with Brian Eno, High Contrast, and such) along with powerful live cuts.

    Both of these compilations [A Collection and 1992-2012: The Anthology] offer an embarrassment of riches, and in very different ways excellent overviews of one of the few long-running, still productive techno bands out there.

    A single CD of short edits is an odd thing for a prog-techno act who specialize in spacious songs that often run for more than 10 minutes.

    Ultimately, 1992-2012 does its job so well that it's hard to see the point of A Collection. [Mar 2012, p.114]
