Kraftwerk: Autobahn (1974)
Autobahn really announces the arrival of Kraftwerk. The record's title track is twenty-two minutes and forty-two seconds of hypnotizing genius. I think I could listen to it all day long.
I should point out that I have a Canadian repress from 1985, rather than the original. Even then, prices on discogs for my release start at $30. For that price, you might as well opt for the new 180 gram releases readily available in most record stores.
Kraftwerk is one of my favourite bands, and this album really says why. If you don't like it, there is something wrong with you :)
