Tssss...
Still that sounds like an infusion of already well-known stuff.
Kraftwerk have done epochal works. And they did quite everything in the last seventeen years to lose
their greatness!!!
Kraftwerk now is just a hot-air-balloon!

(even though I´m confessing I would go to see them live...)

The album is out and it sounds just like the old Kraftwerk we know.
Check out

I've heard the whole album and I have to say that it's nothing spectacular. It's Kraftwerk...


Before you judge me, make sure you're perfect.

Nothing spectacular songs, ok.
Not the half innovative as in the seventies and early eighties.
The main problems are the missing melodies (who the f. develops unique melodies nowadays?) and
the synth-sounds, which are original Kraftwerk of course but in the meantime inflationaryly used
by so many people.
As to the sound (and this has to be mentioned): one of the best records I´ve heard in the last few years. I´ve tested it on several systems, it totally convinced me at most while listening by car radio (title: Elektro Kardiogramm), because of the considerable pressure and the stereo scopic picture - and believe me, I know that system very well. Somebody might say "Nothing else is what I expect of them!" Ok, still such a result is not easy to achieve!
All in all: Look above at my earlier expression and see me enthusiastic about -hmm- five songs
(guess, which ones). I´m very surprised that they made this album and some failings on it can´t change that Kraftwerk still put a lot of modern bands in their places!

By not spectacular, I meant it's just Kraftwerk doing what Kraftwerk do. I like them, don't get me wrong, but it's nothing more than I would have expected from them.

Maybe the fault of the 21st century?

We have so much that nothing impress us anymore?

I have listened to them but not enough to give a honest impression, it sounds nice but I will listen again...


You can do just what you wanna
You can kill or you can die
Be a beggar or a princess
But you'll never lose your style

We who live in the western world are oversupplied.
As artists and as consumers.
But would Kraftwerk have made a better record without that fact?
