In 2009, Kraftwerk have upgraded their Kling Klang masters with the latest studio technology and these magnificent recordings still sound like nothing else in the history of music. Kraftwerk are unique, pristine, profound and beautiful. Decades may pass, but their streamlined synthetic symphonies stand outside time, as fresh as tomorrow, transcendent and sublime.
Performed by the quartet of Hütter, Schneider, Flür and Karl Bartos, the classic Trans Europe Express is one of the most inspired electronically-based pop records of all time. A beautiful spacey suite of electronics and deadpan vocals, the 1977 release stands as arguably the quintessential Kraftwerk sound recording experience.
