Prog Reviewer
4 stars Kraftwerk were no longer alone in the synth-pop field, but with this album they showed that of all those experimenting in this area only they were able to laugh at themselves. Playing up their robotic image to the extreme and full of early-1980s home computer noises, the album is simultaneously a quaint memento from a time when home computers were often seen as rich nerds' toys and at the same time a clear-sighted assessment of the potential of the computer age. With sonic experiments verging on the industrial - featuring beeps and boops which would eventually be adopted by the likes of Ministry and Nine Inch Nails in their more electronic moments - it marks the close of Kraftwerk's most creatively successful period.
Warthur | 4/5 |
