Originally released in 1975 / 12 tracks
Surfing on 1975 sine waves, Kraftwerk plug into possibly one of their finest moments, their fifth studio album, ‘Radioactivity’. The album was their first bilingual release featuring lyrics in both German and English and the notably it featured the first use of the Vako Orchestron keyboard, distinctive for its harsh caustic sound, most apparent on ‘Antenna’. Elsewhere, there is the majestic and exploratory title-track ‘Radioactivity’, the dizzying Gregorian chants of ‘Radio Stars’ and the strangely-sweet lonesome machine pop of ‘Ohm Sweet Ohm’. An incredible milestone in Kraftwerk’s evolution from experimental adventurers to global success stories.
