4.0 excellentAlabaster Jones | June 30th 17

Though it's seen as a step far below their best records and even a fair bit behind their second echelon records, Electric Cafe is still the Kraftwerk you know and love, just a bit dialed back from their more experimental outings. In terms of songwriting, these six songs are all wonderful, with that simple-yet-elegant quality that came to define the band, and many memorable moments within them. Take "Techno Pop" for example; it's endless charm is only accentuated further by a catchy chorus and addictive synth lines. The theme of technology and human love and lust becoming hopelessly intertwined with each other reemerges on both "Der Telefonanruf" and "Sex Objekt", echoing "Computer Liebe" off Computerwelt and much of Die Mensch-Maschine. I personally find the way those electronic voices say "Electric cafe" during the track of the same name to be quite funny in an endearing way. Simply put, Electric Cafe is perhaps Kraftwerk's most underrated work, standing up with some of the group's best albums even if a step below the best.
