Kraftwerk were one of the leading pioneers in electronic music, and this LP showcases the finest of their synth sounds. The instruments bear a spacey vibe and feel like their ahead of their time. The robotic vocals on “Die Roboter” were a nice touch too, with the vocalists introducing themselves from the perspective of the robots.

Up until now, I have not listened to a King Crimson song, except for “21st Century Schizoid Man” which I heard in a secondhand record store. I have, however, known the album cover for many years and have been wanting to check it out for a while now. Here goes!
I like how orchestral the textures feel. This is quite a common characteristic in the prog rock of that time but the album displays it fantastically. The lyrical themes seem to show a criticism towards the government during ... read more

After looking at Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, it’s now time to check out another psychedelic band from Australia with a weird name.

Nothing can be more patrician than an album cover with a big (B)ENIS on it

Anyway, the pulsating excellence from The Money Store carries over to this album, and we get a deeper look into substance abuse on songs like “Lil Boy” and “No Love”. There aren't a lot of melodies (and when they do pop up, they sound great), giving more emphasis to MC Ride's yelly vocals, which sound intense as usual.

Hello, namasteπŸ™πŸ», loved your reviews and followed you. My 2nd conceptual EP 'Marine Affairs' has been just released and I will request you from my heart to check it once. I consists 4 songs (English majorly, with some tinge of hindi and Bengali in 2 track) and it will take only 8 minutes. I know you are busy enough but will be grateful if you review it on AOTY. Your review means a lot. It's a very novice attempt and I am learning, so I will request you to put a very honest review off course. Hope you are in safest of condition in this very hard times. If you do, it will make my day. Thanks in advance for your precious time. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ»
