A good, not great, album, which is probably most peoples biggest problem: that it isn't a masterpiece like its predecessor 5 years earlier.
Side A consists of a kinda-sorta-suite of three tracks that all run into each other and sound similar. For what it is, it's not bad, but it's missing Kraftwerk's warmness that so well complemented the coldness of their work.
Side B is better in my opinion, it follows a more conventional style, of having three separate pop songs without any real connection between them. "The Telephone Call" is a favorite of mine, with this being Karl Bartos' only vocal addition to the bands catalog. Sex Object is also interesting with it's digital strings, but the guitar plucks could of been subdued a bit. The last track is also good, I don't really have much to say on the last one.

Not one of my favorite Kraftwerk albums but still good none-the-less. Like Man Machine, I find the title track being one of the weakest on the album. My personal favorite is "The Telephone Call". It has a electro-comedic feel to it and I bought the 12" single as well cause I loved it so much. Great sampling and synth lines. "Sex Object" follows the same line but the first 3 tracks on the album flow just as nice as the "Trans-Europe Express" ones, expect that I don't find them as pleasing. As with other albums of Kraftwerk they kept up the pace of being 'ahead of thier time'. Everywhere I look there's an Electric Cafe!
