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

I'm sure it was great at the time, and very influential, but most sounds like something I would have created on garageband when I was 13 years old, sans the german vocals. It's just a couple plucky synths and then a drum machine really. Sorry :/

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?
