Autobahn is amazing. That's the only thing I've heard by them, but it was pretty sweet stuff.

"The Man Machine" is the best electronic album I've heard since.. well, ever.

I have never really been able to get into Kraftwerk. I much prefer the lush soundscapes of their fellow country men Tangerine Dream but there is no denying Kraftwerks influence on many genres.

Autobahn cover always reminds me of The Big Lebowski.

Haven't got all that many Kraftwerk albums. 'Man Machine', 'Autobahn', and I'd recommend 'the Mix' to any fans who don't already have it. My favourite was their live album 'Minimum/Maximum', but I lent it to some bastard who never gave it back

I've only listened to a few electronic albums to tell you the truth... So what I said above really doesnt mean all that much .

I like Kraftwerk immensely and also understand their influence but have to admit that I have always wondered why Tangerine Dream's Phaedra fails to get as much praise when it is such an influential album.

This album introduced me to electronic music when I purchased it on release in 1974. It came to the attention due to the hype in the music press and the fact that it was a Virgin Records release and they were a progressive label at the time. I agree about the lushness of the sound. Phaedra has it in abundance when compared to say Autobahn, a very very sparse record in comparison. My memory is that Phaedra had a far bigger impact. IIRC someone like Funkadelic/Parliament, I am happy to be corrected on that one, claimed Kraftwerks influence and that seemed to be a catalyst later on.

I really love Trans-Europe Express. Strangely catchy. I need to get some more albums, I'll probably get Autobahn.

They came to Auckland a couple of days ago but I was too poor to see them.
