iTunes Review

By 1981's Computer World, Kraftwerk's quest to become one with their machines was pretty much complete. The vocals are suffused in eerie electronic processing, as though cyborgs had grabbed the mic; the zapping rhythms sound less like drums than bursts of pure electricity. So much pop music can be traced back to their digital Big Bang: They gave electro its syncopated beats, and "Numbers" was sampled on Afrika Bambaataa's "Planet Rock" and scores of other songs. The band's gentle melodies, meanwhile, make their future-past a remarkably reassuring place to visit.

Ich liebe dich Kraftwerk. Ja wohl

Some of the most unique music of its time. Still great dance beat.

If it was the 80's you might think this was weird stuff. Today you would not get a second look. Being in Silicon Valley at the time, I noticed this album somehow took root among computer nerds with a geeky sense of humor. It took a few listens but I eventually got into Kraftwerk-I guess just like a job as an electrical engineer some music requires a bit of study to appreciate.

Ground Zero for the drum machine invasion of the 80's

This LP was yet another groundbreaking exercise in electronic music from Kraftwerk. The Robots in 1978 and Trans Europe Express in 1977 came before, each subsequent release more rhythmic than the last.
In 1982 a group mashed "Trans", Numbers and Computer World together to create "Planet Rock". The Roland TR808 was the drum machine used on that project along with other synths of the day.
This release is historic and to remastering places the instruments in your face!
Enjoy!

During the mid-'70s, Germany's Kraftwerk established the sonic blueprint followed by an extraordinary number of artists in the decades to come. From the British new romantic movement to hip-hop to techno, the group's self-described "robot pop" -- hypnotically minimal, obliquely rhythmic music performed solely via electronic means -- resonates in virtually every new development to impact the contemporary pop scene of the late- 20th century, and as pioneers of the electronic music form, their enduring...
