When fans have voted for their favourite Kraftwerk album, Electric Cafe has never done very well. It's release was delayed for years and when the album finally came out, it wasn't as pioneering as the band's earlier works.

Despite all that, Electric Cafe is surprisingly one of the albums I find myself listening to over and over again. Side A is just hypnotic in it's monotonous sound and side B features The Telephone Call, a true eighties pop classic no matter how unlike Kraftwerk it sounds. Sadly the title track which ends the album is just plain rubbish and probably the worst piece of music made by the band.

All in all, Electric Cafe is an excellent pop album, but not as original and influential as what we're used to expect from Kraftwerk.
