Auf ihrem siebten Album Die Mensch-Maschine holten Kraftwerk das Pop-Element ihrer Musik stärker in den Vordergrund: Die Arrangements sind weniger minimalistisch, die Rhythmen stärker, die Songs eingängiger. Der Synthpop-Stil der Tracks, die gerne mit elektronisch bearbeiteten Stimmen arbeiten, war wegweisend für spätere New-Wave- und Electro-Pop-Musiker und für New- Romantics-Bands wie Ultravox, Duran Duran oder The Human League. Konzeptuell behandelt das Album die Verbindung zwischen Mensch und Technologie ("Die Roboter") und die futuristische Urbanisierung ("Metropolis"), dazu kommt die Single "Das Modell", die neben "Autobahn" zum wohl bekanntesten Kraftwerk-Song wurde. © TiVo

The last great Kraftwerk album, Computer World captured the band right at the moment when its pioneering approach fully broke through in popular music, thanks to the rise of synth pop, hip-hop, and electro. As Arthur Baker sampled "Trans-Europe Express" for "Planet Rock" and disciples like Depeche Mode, OMD, and Gary Numan scored major hits, Computer World demonstrated that the old masters still had some last tricks up their collective sleeves. Compared to earlier albums, it fell readily in line with The Man-Machine, eschewing side-long efforts but with even more of an emphasis on shorter tracks mixed with longer but not epic compositions. While the well-established tropes of the band were used again -- electronically treated vocals, some provided by Speak and Spell toys; crisp rhythm blips; basslines and beats; haunting, quirky melodies -- there's a ready liveliness to the songs, like the addictive "Pocket Calculator," with its perfectly deadpan portrait of "the operator" and his favorite tool, and the almost winsome "Computer Love." Cannily, the lyrical focus on newly accessible technology instead of cryptic futurism and vanished pasts matched this new of-the-now stance, and the result was a perfect balance between the new world of the album title and a withdrawn, bemused consideration of that world. The title track itself, with its lists detailing major organizations presumably all wired up, echoes the flow of Trans-Europe Express, serene and pondering. "Pocket Calculator" itself is more outrageously fun, thanks to the technical observation that "by pressing down a special key it plays a little melody." Others would take the band's advances and run with them, but with Computer World Kraftwerk -- over a decade on from their start -- demonstrated how they had stayed not merely relevant, but prescient, when nearly all their contemporaries had long since burned out. © Ned Raggett /TiVo

Mit dem Aufkommen des New Wave integrieren die Synthesizer und Keyboards aller Arten das Rockinstrumentarium. In Düsseldorf fängt Kraftwerk in seinen vollsynthetischen und elektronischen Melodien den Zeitgeist und die Industriegesellschaft ein. Mit ihrem sechsten, 1977 erschienenen Album Trans Europe Express grenzen diese von aktueller Musik begeisterten Avantgarde-Künstler an Erlesenheit und Perfektion. Die Musik von Kraftwerk ist zu Kunst erhobene Empfindungslosigkeit, minimalistische Ästhetik und himmlische Harmonie und sie fasziniert sowohl David Bowie (zusammen mit Iggy Pop im Song Trans Europe Express zitiert) und Brian Eno als auch die ersten Rapper (Afrika Bambaataa) und - das versteht sich von selbst - die zukünftigen Elektropäpste. Wenn nämlich dieses Vorläuferuniversum namens Kraftwerk auf den produktiven Disco-Groove trifft, ist das die Geburtsstunde des Techno… © MZ/Qobuz

By the early '90s, it was quite apparent just how far-reaching Kraftwerk's influence had been. From techno to hip-hop to industrial music to house, numerous others were undeniably indebted to the group. Dance clubs had long been a key part of Kraftwerk's following, and the dance market was the obvious target of The Mix -- a collection of highly enjoyable, often clever remixes. While novices would do better to start out with Trans-Europe Express or The Man-Machine, hardcore Kraftwerk followers shouldn't pass up these remixes of such classics as "Trans-Europe Express," "The Robots," "Autobahn," and "Radioactivity." One could nitpick about the absence of "Neon Lights" and "Europe Endless," but the bottom line is that this CD was a welcome addition to the Kraftwerk catalog. © Alex Henderson /TiVo
