I have most of them and love 'em all but am keen to know what you guys rate as the cream. I have to say 'The Man Machine'is probably my fave. Just got Computer Love on now and its a stunning piece of melodic electronica...

Coldplay can kiss my grits

, Autobahn is another good album by KW. Reminds me of being a kid although the rest of the album is just filling space to my ears.

My vote too.

Saying that though, TDF Soundtracks is one mighty fine piece of work.

I'd go fer 'Radioactivity'... 1st one I ever listened to, brilliant through earphones in the dead dark of night.
Its a very dark album though....

I like Radioactivity. I like the 'darkness' of it. Man Machine ain't bad either. Not so keen on Autobahn. Tour De France Soundtracks isperhaps more, erm,modern-soundingand perhaps more mellow.

The live version of Radioactivity on Minimum Maximum is fantastic! What a great live album. Sounds almost as clean as a studio album but for the crowd noises....

Was good to see them bring out the dead (

) for that tour. The old stuff is the best.

Like Old Spice...!

For me the best one is Autobahn which original LP I kept before adding CD version to it. I know nothing of nearly all of the rest of their stuff but have read ofKraftwerk giving up motorways andencouraging bicycling on pavements.

Another vote for Man-Machine, but am very fond of Radioactivity & Autobahn - in fact I've just had to put Autobahn on.

'Computer World'. It would win just for the inclusion of 'Numbers'!

Here's a vote for Radioactivity. It makes sense you know and I wouldn't have called it dark. Ohm Sweet Ohm is after all meant to be funny (I think ... its hard to tell when dealing with teutonic robot people)

Man Machine for me.

Had a listen today and it sounded better than ever.

I'm now annoying my wife by whistling "Neon Lights".
