Germany, where the past is the future

So many things start here. Bambatta made electro from this album. Solvent's sound is just a mutated gene away from this place. The suprising thing is that unlike many classic albums when you put this on it sounds as fresh as the day it came out. The sound is bright but not too tinny and the sounds themselves just sparkle. On Futurama some of my favorite bits are when they try to imagine what the past, our current time, is like. Can you imagine what someone digging this album up in a thousand years will think? "Wow, they were more ahead in 1981 than anyone thought! I didn't think they even used computers till the 1990s and these guys are writing love songs to them."
