This landmark synthpop record from Kraftwerk is absolutely stunning throughout and really did set the precedent for the entirety of 80s electronic pop. The shift in genre from prog electronic to more accessible poppier compositions works incredibly well. From hip-hop to dance to rock, there are many worlds of music that have been directly influenced by "The Man-Machine". It's no coincidence that "The Model" topped the charts in 1981 in the UK, over 3 years after this record was released... the world wasn't quite ready for its futuristic pop sound back in '78. Nothing less than a monumental achievement and one of my very favourite pieces of art.

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.

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