Album artwork for Autobahn by Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk release their international breakthrough album. the symphonic title track, an epic ode to the joys of motorway travel, wraps a mesmerising motorik rhythm around a sampled collage of car horns, engine noise, whirring tyres and radio crackle. in edited form, it becomes a revolutionary hit single around the world. elsewhere, in wordless industrial folk music, the band reveal both their light and dark sides - 'mitternacht' is all creeping midnight shadows, while 'morgenspaziergang' is fresh with morning dew and birdsong. two versions of 'kometenmelodie', one a starkly gothic prowl, the other a sunny electro boogie, provide further instrumental sound paintings. pure and strong and bold, kraftwerk compose cinema for the ears. the pop world falls in love with them.
