Die Mensch Maschine (Man Machine)
2015 180gm Remastered Repress With Booklet. Small Top Seam Split And Corner Bump. “The Man-Machine Is Closer To The Sound And Style That Would Define Early New Wave Electro-Pop -- Less Minimalistic In Its Arrangements And More Complex And Danceable In Its Underlying Rhythms. Like Its Predecessor, Trans-Europe Express, There Is The Feel Of A Divided Concept Album, With Some Songs Devoted To Science Fiction-Esque Links Between Humans And Technology, Often With Electronically Processed Vocals ("The Robots," "Spacelab," And The Title Track); Others Take The Glamour Of Urbanization As Their Subject ("Neon Lights" And "Metropolis"). Plus, There's "The Model," A Character Sketch That Falls Under The Latter Category But Takes A More Cynical View Of The Title Character's Glamorous Lifestyle. More Pop-Oriented Than Any Of Their Previous Work, The Sound Of The Man-Machine -- In Particular Among Kraftwerk's Oeuvre -- Had A Tremendous Impact On The Cold, Robotic Synth Pop Of Artists Like Gary Numan, As Well As Britain's Later New Romantic Movement.” Steve Huey, All Music Guide.
