Got tickets to this album live at Tate Modern and it was brilliant. I think this album isn't Appreciated as it came after Kraftwerks two well known albums, The Man Machine and Computer World. I love this album and Especially the song Electric Cafe. Must buy this classic

I have always enjoyed the album 'Electric Cafe' of which this one is to replaced, with its original title re-instated back to Techno Pop. To me the sound is a bit compressed and loud compared to the original Cd, but the strangest thing is this 'so called extra track', at least on the artwork that is what there appears to be, but not really! For some crazy reason Kraftwerk have replaced the original 'The Telephone Call' with I think the A and B side singles: The Telephone Call/Home Phone - 'Home Phone' is just a different remixed version of the second half of 'The Telephone Call' clever marketing maybe, but IMO the original Telephone Call is great the way it is and these single edits should have been saved for a Singles/Greatest Hits/Rarities type compilation, sound issues aside it is still nice to have the single mixes available at the mo on Cd, so if you already have 'Electric Cafe' keep it or seek out a 2nd hand copy if you don't have it, don't buy this to replace the original 'Electric Cafe' Cd/Album because The Telephone Call is nowhere near as good on 'Techno Pop' as the original album version and is totally different IMO.

i remember buying the vinyl in 86.it was slated by the press and fans alike.i thought it was the most impressive thing i had heard.from the opening boing boom tschak,to the brilliant electric cafe it has it all.sound is impressive like all the kraftwerk re-releases,sounds ive never heard from the album or previous cd releases are apparent here.however the change of name and inclusion of a benign track(house phone)are sadly a bit of meglomania on hutters part.well worth buying though.still sounds great in todays music enviroment and will never date,or maybe sex object will,lol.as i couldnt stop laughing how dated it did sound.all in all a great album,short and to the point.long live the robots!

Format: Audio CD
A five year absence,and endless permutations of new material result in the over-worked, but supreme "Electric Cafe" - now retitled as "Techno Pop" ; lacking a major concept, it instead took a thematic swipe at a world where the promise of the Man/Machine/ComputerWorld had become true, and where do you go from there? The reality was fast catching up with Kraftwerk's far advanced ideas, and the dilemma was, when you have spend so long being futuristic, what do you do when the future finally catches up with you? Side one, as was, is a fluid, single song that tackles the nature of music, the industrial world, and the soundtrack to life that is machines. Echoing "Trans Europe Express", keyboards replicated the clank of machine parts and showed the sound and msuic of the rhythm of modern life. "Music Non Stop" was the lead single, a slight but intruiging nursery rhyme that has become a staple of Kraftwerk's live set. Given the last minute change of mind, it is also the first song where the video was completed two years before the song was finalised. Side two is less obvious, taking in the only Bartos-sung Kraftwerk number - the sublime, Model-esque "Telephone Call", and then dealing for side two with the relationship man has with his other humans in the machine age. Superb, and no mid-career lag.

This remaster is an elegant step forward in sonic remastering - however the original album recording of "The Telephone Call" is replaced by the rr-recorded and re-mixed single version and it's b-side "House Phone" for no apparent reason.

To be honest I found a cheap new copy before actually buying this, as I already own one of the earlier CD incarnations, and wasn't happy about the "Telephone Call" being replaced with single A and B sides. However as that made this release materially different I did succumb in the end! The mastering is a bit boomy on some of the drums, but the balance isn't bad, and some nuances on quieter melodic doodlings actually shine through the mix better.

Whilst its nice to hear the 7" remix and B-side "House Phone" on CD they are separated by a 2 second gap which slightly jarred to my ears. I think sequencing these effectively as a continuous track, like the first 3 tracks are, would've worked better. This isn't a classic Kraftwerk album, and adding the 2 single mixes as bonus tracks might've been a preferable, but its worth having both versions due to the actual musical changes selected by Mr Hutter (for whatever reason). Maybe the original master tape of the album version of "Telephone Call" was damaged...we'll probably never know....!

Great album; particularly "sex object": good to learn from. Great Urban rhythms, wonderful to have it in my collection; great!
