40 years on since its 1978 release 'The Man-Machine' has unfortunately not aged well , what was considered cutting edge in 1978 is now common place for any bed room composer with the right PC Tools

This album is every thing you would expect from a Kraftwerk release , its cold , clinical and angular with several Vocoder ("Robot Voice") sections

Track 4 "The Model" is ok but as an over all package 'Man-Machine' is not in my musical wheel house at all

40 years later, and this still feels so magical and effortless. I love it.

My favourite Kraftwerk album. The man machine, features beautiful soundscapes combined with a pop mentality. The model, even became a no:1 hit in the U.K. a few years down the line. Perfect late night chill out music. They were so ahead of their time.

A timeless electronic masterpiece, there's really nothing else to say. Even in 2016 as I sit here listening to it in my earphones, it still sounds so remarkable and fresh. Unbelievable stuff.

It's Trans-Europe-Express, but with a poppier vibe and more dance beats. How can you argue with that?
