3 stars I'm rating this one right down the middle because I am impartial to it. If you simply can't get enough of the more electronic versions of Krautrock, then you will probably love this album, despite the fact that it really isn't phenomenal in terms of experimental rock. I think, at the time, this was meant as a more commerical mainstream approach to an audience than the more truly experimental and awe-inspiring Krautrock bands. If I had to compare this music to anything else in the scene, it would be TANGERINE DREAM, but I would much prefer TANGERINE DREAM to KRAFTWERK anyday. That being said, if you are entirely new to the genre, and to any of these bands, this may be a good place to start. This album does not assault all of your sense from the get go, in the way a CAN album does, and its more accessible in the way a PHADREUS-era TD album is. So, I'd say, that with all the electronics, this is a good place to start, and good place to move on from once you've heard it. But to be obsessed with this album, why?
