Kraftwerk

Alphaville and Kraftwerk...They are both from the same country, but oh so different.
KW is just so...electric...It just screams computerized around them...

Yeah they are very electric, and a little too much in my opinion. But they have influenced a lot of other bands (Depeche Mode, Human League, OMD etc). I like these bands better than Kraftwerk, but they have made a couple of songs that I like, the best being "The Model".

I got a Kraftwerk cd not too long ago, only for the mere fact Mr. Gold had spoken about them before, I liked it, but not something I want to listen to over and over again like Alphaville, I could listen to Alphaville 24/7 and never tire, About the 3rd time hearing Pocket Calculator I was ready to toss the Kraftwerk out the window!!!

I think that KW is something you can listen to a couple of times. Then it gets boring, and the salvation then is AV...*hihi*
Pocket calculater is not a very good song if you want to get a first impression of KW...
I would prefer Radio Activity.

I guess you need to see Kraftwerk in the context of the time, when they released their LPs. They started to make electronic music in the late 60s/early 70s and they were one of the first, to do so. This was really a revolution for the music business! They build their own synthesizers and made a lot of experiments with sounds.
The first of their records were made with almost no money and just with the support of an engineer in a music studio.

I´m sure, that today´s music would sound different without Kraftwerk.

Without Germanys Synth bands like Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream, the music world wouldn't be as we see it today! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
