Legendary German Visionaries KRAFTWERK Released 7th LP ‘THE MAN-MACHINE’ Forty Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

17 May 2018

Band: KRAFTWERK

Album: THE MAN-MACHINE

Released: 19 May 1978 – 40 years ago

ROLLING STONE wrote back then: “As with Trans-Europe Express, the new record has a built in ambiguity that pretty much accounts for the group’s charm. Though Kraftwerk would seem to worship machines — totally unlike Brian Eno, who, on his brilliant Before and after Science, explores their possibilities — the band might actually be committed humanists, documenting how emotionless the future will be if we continue to cheer such “innovations” as the Chemical Bank Cash Machine. Maybe. Whatever its stance, Kraftwerk still parodies us dumb mortals.”
Score: 5/5 – Full review here.
