Kraftwerk's fourth studio album marked a dramatic change in genre, from Krautrock jams to progressive electronic music, and what a refreshing revamp. The 22 minute title track is, simply put, one of the best tracks of all time. Innovative and transporting, "Autobahn" is a sublime track with Kraftwerk's trademark humour and playfulness sprinkled on top. Side B is also transporting as it takes you on a journey down the autobahn through the dead of night leading into the beautiful morning on "Morgenspaziergang" complete with tuneful flutes! A seamless, landmark journey. Wir fahren fahren fahren auf der Autobahn!

VERY nice to listen to if you want to relax. The title cut is my favorite by the band. It's hypnotic sound draws you in to what it must actually be like while you're driving on the Autobahn! This is just a wonderful listening experience.

Well, once you realise this was made in 74, you start to recognize the revolution in music they were doing in germany with eletronic sounds.

Considering that this album was released in the same year as Tangerine Dream's Phaedra, it has to be considered quite groundbreaking. Much as I love Tangerine Dream, particulary the earlier albums, this album is much more accessible if not a little repetitive. I don't think that Kraftwerk had such a wide spectrum of synths as TD so when you have less you are forced into creativity. The bass synth sequences are very similar to TD, probably created with a Moog Modular, the main difference between TD and Kraftwerk apart from the vocal aspects is the lack of string and pad textures, the overall Kraftwerk sound is much more staccato.

One of the more better Kraftwerk albums. Autobahn is obviously the highlight.
