This review is from: The Pleasure Principle + 7 Bonus Tracks (Audio CD)
Well here it is, and if like me you adore the sound of analogue synths and heaving bass beats then look no further. This album is absolutely peerless, a soaring masterpiece that will force you to listen to it again and again. If it wasn't for Kraftwerk, this album would sound like the beginning of electronic music, the point in time after which countless bands have attempted - but ultimately failed - to emulate artists like Gary Numan. I'm a huge Depeche Mode fan and I can see instantly where they derived inspiration from. It's music like this, utter perfection. Highlights are too numerous to mention but the opening track sends shivers down the spine and you know you are in for something special. It only gets better from there and the fact that this album ever ends is a major disappointment.
So do yourself a favour, buy this, put the cans on and immerse yourself in the genius of one of the most important albums of all time. Yes it really is that good.
