Classic analog digital

"If you aren't a Kraftwerk fan already, then in my opinion there are better introductions -- like Minimum Maximum. If you are a fan, this recording is an absolute must have. Krafwerk foreshadowed the digital era way back in the 70's and 80's using analog synthesizers, often of their own design and construction. The sound is less precise, dynamic and hard- edged than modern Kraftwerk, but it sounds more "musical" -- in that Man-Machine sort of way. Four of the tracks on this album are absolute classics, with two of them (Model and Neon Lights) containing two of the most unforgettable melodies ever to come out of "pop" music."
