#307 Kraftwerk – Autobahn

Autobahn from Kraftwerk is an album I have heard about, but I am not sure if I have ever heard the whole thing. It seems likely, but I cannot remember it. I had friends who like this music at some point in my life and I have listened to a lot of ambient music. It was my favourite genre in the late 80s and early 90s.

Bahn, bahn, bahn, the “Autobahn“. Okay, that part is a little irritating, but the music is great. Remember, this is 1974; electronic ambient music was still young. It has the feeling of speeding on the Autobahn and you are seeing the same things over and over. I think the song is good, but I wanted it to be a bit faster.

The whole album is really good and picks up momentum on the second song “Kometenmelodie 1” and does not let go until the end. If you have never heard of ambient music, then give this one a listen. It does not disappoint. 9/10.
