5 stars Kraftwerk's best (at least from those I heard already). Possibly one of the first "synth pop" albums, but if that's the case, then this is the best one of the genre. The first 4 songs are amazing. They all have great and catchy vocal melodies, good synth riffs (especially "Europe Endless" and "Showroom Dummies"), and sound really interesting since they create some interesting moods (especially "The Hall Of Mirrors", the darkest song here). The title track is amazing, but the main synth's riff sounds too abrassive. "Metal On Metal" is like a coda for the title track, and I don't enjoy it as much, but it's good anyway. The last 2 songs are nowhere near as good though.
