That's almost what I did. My CD-R runs:

3PP
Model Man
Sleepless (T-Lev mix)
Nuages
Industry
Dig Me
Industrial Zone A
No Warning
Industrial Zone B
Larks' III

Your mileage may vary...

Mine would be that minus Model Man. Back when I used to use *cough*cassettes*cough*, I put Beat and TOAPP onto a 60 minute tape. Not a 90, but a 60. All the tracks I cared to listen to from each album fit easily into 30 minutes. Actually, the side with Beat still had plenty of room to spare.
Walking out's just another metaphor.

I don't completely agree (Beat is the one for me, my first entry point into KC universe), but I do think it contains the definitive 80's KC piece in TOAPP. The point where the sometimes too brainy cyclical playing of Discipline and sometimes too blatant pop inclinations of Beat finally merged perfectly in one short and concise song.

I really like this album and I guess that kind of puts me in the minority. Although four versions of Sleepless is a bit more than I can sit through in one sitting. I like this album better than Beat and even Islands. :twisted:

You show promise, my son... (although Beat is the better record)
The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more fucking punishment in store. Stand it like a man. And give some back.

I really like Beat too, although the second half has always seemed a little shakey to me in spots. I think these songs are great live however.
