3 stars Computer welt or Computer world is the first studio album Kraftewerk released in the ;80's, issued in 1981 after 3 years pause. To me this one is in same league with predecesor, while not so popular or inventive as previous one. Same attitude pop electronic experimental music with prog touches, this album is maybe little mature then before works. Anybody knows that the '80's was the decade of pop and all the subgenres emerged from pop with additional experimental electronic keyboards aproach by some bands. Kraftewek manage to survive and above all manage to create again a good album showing that they are still in bussines after a decade of non mainstream music and being quite original most of the time. They were and still is the fathers of electronic music, the computer that just take wings in early '80's is succesfuly integrated in this album, with distorded vocal arrangemnts, a rythmic passages, mechanica sound in the end so Kraftwerk , musicaly speaking. Not a bad album at all, but as I said on previous review this is not my kind of music I want to hear daily, but from time to time I can experiment a little bit and hearing this unusual for my taste music. 3 stars, fairly good but with lack of emotional spirit.
