Franz Schubert (2009 Remaster)
Label: Parlophone UK
Only Kraftwerk could marry beautiful repetitive figures, straight-faced jokes, serious art, and hokum into something that goes way beyond greatness. The title cut places their surprise international smash "Autobahn" on train tracks and became a staple for late 1970s FM stoners, new wavers and black America. Their best album -- "Europe Endless" is a quiet stunner.
