5 stars This is a great album and a musical revolution one of the first synth albums where all the instruments on the album is synthesizers and what a great one this is, its very good driving music perfect if your on a jerney somewhere in buss, car or train and especially train becaus thats what the album is about realy, Kraftwerk where truly a great band and not afraid for experimenting with synth sounds, this is and "The man machine" is probobly their 2 greatest works and most influential albums. The first song europe endless is yust great a long beautiful balladish tune withe a good melody, then comes the rather creepy Hall of mirrors and i love the spooky sounds and the robotic plastic vocals, yust awsome. Showe rome dummies is next a realy strange track my least favorite on the labum but still not bad, and then we have the real masterpiece on the album the long and great title track, its a Very haunting song i love the synth beat yust fantastic, metal on metal is part 2 of the song withe some hammers baning on metal sounds, Franz Schubert is a short instrumental a beat repeted over and over again and its rather good, and the closing track is a reprise of europe endless and so ends a great album and an fantastic jerney, this was a realy ground bracking album when it came out and it have aged very well i think, its still sounds very good and futuristic too day as it must have done when it was first realesed. A highly recomended album if you love the sound of synthesizers. No wait, this is a must have for everyone if you like good music this is for you, everybody must have this. I am sure you will love it yust as i do.
