I always asked myself why exactly I was listening to this album, but somehow I kept returning to it. It’s the most rhythmically creative album by them if you ask me, to the point it becomes rather hypnotizing. Paradoxically it is also the most melodically oriented album by them. It is certainly their strangest.

Love the state of the art computer in the photo on the album cover! Reminds me of my School physics lab. All joking aside, when this album came out there was no such thing as a 'home computer' as we know it today. The laptop and tablet hadn't even been invented. The album was ahead of its time and the minamilist sound creates an atmosphere which could be the inside of a computer at work. Personal favourite is Home Comuter where the Mini Moog bass line and Prophet Five pad depict an eerie clinical landscape over a simple but punchy drum machine loop.

Another highly influential Kraftwerk album although I don't think it's quite as good as, The Man machine. Still, a record far ahead of it's time and a great late night LP.

This eerie yet charming album is one of the most influential in electronic. The melody crafting is top tier.

Kraftwerk is one of the most influential bands ever, and though they may have first broken new ground with Autobahn in 1974,the Kraftwerk album with the most impact on the current music scene is Computer World. Featuring Kraftwerk's dry sense of humor, the album is much more fun than you'd think an album about computers made by a bunch of Germans would be. The best on the album are "Pocket Calculator", "Computer Love", and the title track, but the rest are really good as well. One of the first great electronic dance albums, Computer World was Kraftwerk's biggest contribution to modern music.
