iTunes Review

Following the artistic and commercial breakthrough of Autobahn, 1975's Radio-Activity found Kraftwerk consolidating the strengths they had begun displaying on the earlier album. All traces of their flute-playing, longhaired hippie past were eradicated as Kraftwerk fully embraced an all-electronic sound. It was their first album to feature the two-man electronic percussion team of Karl Bartos and Wolfgang Flur; hence the increasing reliance on rhythm.

The conceptual thread of radio transmission was part of a growing obsession with technological themes, just as the group's commitment to electronic gear was becoming greater than ever.

You often find them highly rated in places mostly intelligent people frequent.

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...
