Kraftwerk (EMI)

Although fans will notice the beefed-up sound on the digital remasters of these eight Kraftwerk albums, it’s not dramatic enough to justify the expense involved in repurchasing them.

However, if you haven’t heard these immensely influential pieces of electronica, consider this the perfect invitation.

All eight albums here have their merits, but the minimalist Autobahn and the comparatively poppy The Man Machine are the places to start.
