5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Bliss !, 6 July 2002
This review is from: Autobahn (Audio CD)
What were you doing in 1974 ? Whilst the rest of the world were glamming it up and hippies were fast disappearing, Kraftwerk were sitting in a studio in Dussledorf making music. Not only were they writing songs but they were creating the instruments on which to play them. You have to consider what the world was listening to in 1974 to truly appreciate the importance and the innovation represented by this lp.
With its release Kraftwerk had created an electronic prototype for a style of music which would take the world by storm and remains a major influence today. Thats a lot for album to live up to, but Autobahn is equal to the task.
Turn the hi fi on, sit back, close your eyes and drift away with possibly the finest popular music lp ever made. It has everything - art ('A simply perefect musical painting of a drive down the motorway''), tune and beauty. Its a masterpiece, if you don't own it already your music collection is not complete.
The tunes are timeless and it has aged so much better than most lps released at the time. No lp comes with a guarantee that you'll like it, but this is about as close as one gets to having one. Brilliant.

German? Nein. I have just re-read the review and, as I suspected, made absolutely no such claim or reference. I am confused by your comment but, frankly, not that bothered because this is one class album. And it doesn't matter what race the people are that made it. Racism in music? LOL

Couldn't agree with you more and Autobahn is one totally classic album.
