Incredible for 1983. Indeed a landmark in electronic music, techno and samples.

a landmark album for modern electronica, that also reflects certain changes in the artistic development of cabaret voltaire, but nevertheless is as radical and groundbraking as anyhting they have done before this release. applied dance-beats actually intensify the messages, moods and methods mallinder and kirk always wanted to express, a visonary album on the cutting edge of it´s era and beyond. the albums still sounds raw and fresh and has not lost impact on it´s hypnotic and haunting qualities. where kraftwerk´s "computerwelt" aims for clean surfaces to produce timeless music, "crackdown" challanges the listerner with raw and dark substance, that is a more realisitc dystopic projection of our futures ahead. we should answer with "just fascination".
