I have this on my MP3 plyer and still enjoy it 2 years down the line. I think it is a shame that when an artist steps out of their so called 'genre' they get criticised for doing something different. I really loved Kraftwerk, but you can't judge this on the past, you have to move on and listen to each album in it's own right without comparison to other work. Just be free, listen and don't think about electronic music, just enjoy. Karl Bartos sounds a lot more happy than the current Kraftwerk albums, it's got to be worth a listen. If you are just expecting the 'Kraftwerk' sound then you will be disappointed, but if you just like music, then just listen.

If you're reading this review you should already know that Karl Bartos was once a member of Kraftwerk before he left in 1991. He then started this solo career. This is his second album and while I enjoyed the first few listens, it quickly became boring and mediocore. My main problem is that every song uses the same electric guitar/keyboard hybrid and there are no downbeat tracks. Even one song which is about murder and suicide, is one of the most upbeat tracks I've ever heard. This is for purists only, and it'll only last a week before it starts gathering dust on your shelf. But what a good week it is.

This is NOT Techno! 4 Feb. 2011
By William Rafti - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Every song has electric and/or acoustic guitar and drums, and sounds like run of the mill boring forgettable pop music, not electronic techno, which is what Kraftwerk/Bartos fans would be expecting. The lyrics are so-so as well consisting mostly of traditional voice processing (reverb, almost no vocoder or synthesized vocals). As a hardcore Kraftwerk fan I could hardly be less satisfied, it feels like I got the wrong album as I thought "Baby Come Back" was on here, but it's not.

Wonderful pop album! Not Kraftwerk... 7 May 2013
By joe colone - Published on Amazon.com
YES--he is from the phenomenal Kraftwerk. BUT it sounds nothing like anything Kraftwerk has ever done. And that's perfectly OK! Electric Music is a beautiful pop music album, loaded with musical perfection, great chord changes and lush harmonies. A little Lennonesque, a little bit of Al Stewart. If there was more pop of this caliber on the radio I might try to turn it on once again,
If I am not mistaken, Karl played all or at least most of the instruments on Electric Music. Which includes tons of acoustic guitar. Very nice!
It's not ELECTRONIC music. It's ELECTRIC MUSIC. Big difference. Everyone should give this album another shot and listen to it for what it is instead of what it's not. We'll all have to wait a little longer for another Kraftwerk album. But we're pretty used to that by now.

Just Horrible 25 Oct. 2012
By Musik Man - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
First off, this isn't electro. Let's just get that out of the way. I'm not sure what Karl was trying to achieve. But anyway, the songs on here sound the like the opening of a really cheesy 80's sitcom. I bought this album used for 8 bucks. Wish I could get my money back. Even for pop music, there's nothing memorable or inspiring about any of them. I can't believe that this album is by someone as talented as Karl Bartos.
