This review is from: Computer World (Audio CD)
Düsseldorf's finest have never bettered this in my opinion. From the opening title track, you'll be on an intoxicating journey, though admittedly a fairly short one.
Computer World shows just what foresight the band had. Clearly predicting the technological obsessed world we live in today, monitored by our governments and reliant on our computers for even the most simplest task.
The title track is stunning and one of the best Kraftwerk compositions as is the first single released from the album, the quirky Pocket Calculator. New fans will recognize the melody of Computer Love, it was relecently borrowed by doom mongers Coldpay for their insipid Talk single. Still, at least Karl and Ralf will have made a bit of money out of it.
Many cite The Man Machine and Trans Europe Express as being the peak of Kraftwerk's powers, but for me, it's this album. Enchanting, hypnotizing and always thought provoking.
