Kraftwerk

Continuing to ignore the fact that I should be digging up the old, already created threads for artists, this thread is about Kraftwerk

What are you guys listening to? I am digging Trans-Europe Express right now. It's crazy how you can hear what seems like the origins of early hip-hop beats in this record.

I'm a huge fan. My favorite albums are Trans-Europe Express and The Man Machine. Both are absolutely incredible.

I'd say Autobahn and Computer World are just a notch below those two, but still excellent.

I listen to Kraftwerk since 5/6 yrs-old because of my father's vinyls he used to play.
Today they have made some of my favourite music ever.

^ It's think it's more something like... «Wir fahr'n fahr'n fahr'n auf der Autobahn» than "having fun on the autobahn"

They haven't exactly done that much lately, which is unfortunate. I'd like to see one of their shows.

^ Minimum-Maximum is fucking awesome. A very good double live album. Specially if we put aside the prejudice of being an electronic group in concert. A must-have.

Tour de France Soundtracks is excellent, if you haven't already listened to it

Oh, I agree. Great album. But that was five years ago now. I'm really hoping it doesn't take as long for the next one to appear.
