Performer Notes
  • Kraftwerk reached a creative peak on this 1977 masterpiece, whose second side was entirely devoted to a breathtaking aural recreation of an intercontinental train journey. The first side featured the shimmering beauty of "Europe Endless" alongside the eerie, dislocated vocals of "The Hall of Mirrors" and "Showroom Dummies," the latter track demonstrating the band's often unappreciated sly humour. Representing one of the pinnacles of 70s electronic music, it was a notable irony that the expressionless and mechanistic Kraftwerk went on to become, via Afrika Bambaataa's sampling of "Trans-Europe Express" on his seminal "Planet Rock" single, one of the early pioneers of dance music.
