AllMusic Review by

A worthy follow up-to Supply and Demand, this release focuses on Krause's interpretation of the music of Hans Eisler, a great German songwriter and contemporary of Brecht and Weill (though less well known). As usual, the singing is stunning, and the instrumental accompaniment, which features significant contributions by Lindsay Cooper and Danny Thompson, is impeccable. Krause recorded English and German versions of Tank Battles (hence the title Panzer Schlacht) and both are highly recommended.
