4.0 out of 5 stars Krafwerk's first step to greatness, 7 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Autobahn (Audio CD)
This album is very good if not slightly overated. A lot of people believe this to be Kraftwerk's best album, but in my opinion Trans-Europe Express and The Man Machine are far greater. But this album and the technology used was still well ahead of its time in 1975.
The opening song Autobahn is a classic, that clocks in at approaching 25 minutes. For those who don't know, the theme of the song is car transport, and it simulates a journey along a motorway, sounds boring, but isn't. This is one of thier most famous songs, and also one of thier first to include lyrics.
Apart from this amazing opening track the rest of the album doesn't fare that well, with the final track on the album being the pick of the remaining 4 tracks. This song has a nice flute tune that repeats throughout, amongst the backdrop of static noise and the sound of untuned radio's.
Overall this is an essential part of any Kraftwerk fan's collection, but it is not their best album.
