4 stars This is the only record by Kraftwerk I own at the moment, but it's really a brilliant record with very much groovey, floating and avant-garde pieces.

I really like the intro of 'Retreat (Ruckzuck)' and the main minimalistic melody with nice flute lines and a few avant-garde parts.

The second piece is a very avant-garde piece with somethings which sounds like a very long drawer, which make a very noisy sound whilst opening them.

The masterpiece of the record is in my opinion 'Megaherz'. The long bizarre minimal chords and ambient flute-playing on this piece just blew me away.

'From the High Skies (Von Himmel Hoch)' strarts of with something that sounds like an alarm. There are also some planes flying over and they are crashing down with explosions at the ends. The drums is really brilliant here and the electronics are like strange fun.

The cover of the album is a very brilliant minimalistic pop-art cover, with a very clear hint to Andy Warhol's cover design for Velvet Undergrounds album 'The Velvet Underground & Nico'.

Excellent recording, worth four stars.
