Famous German band that is considered internationally to be the Vangelis Katsoulis Minimal Suite Double Image of techno music. Kraftwerk started as a duo of Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider. Before releasing their first Kraftwerk album they released a work of experimental music under "Organisation" name. The album was called Tone Float and is now very difficult to find. Musically it was a mixture of weird flute playing, guitar and electronic effects.
Some have compared it to early Pink Floyd. The first two Kraftwerk albums continue in this direction, featuring at times really weird electronic excursions with some flute playing and cool motorik rhythms.
The motorik aesthetics of these early albums were shared at that time and also later by some other German experimental bands, like Neu! After several personnel changes Michael Rother of Neu!

Tshala Muana Les Choc Stars Du Zaire Ben Nyamabo Tshibola Nakombe Nga is quite unique and, overall, the album is pretty good, in spite of its outright poppish nature in places.
Ok, to make the long story short: what I like about Kraftwerk is their ability to describe and transmit certain atmosphere, like, for instance, in Trans-Europe Express where they managed to capture the atmosphere of the night train ride perfectly and this work is pure genius with its simple and basic, but still strong and profound theme.
In conclusion I'd like to mention that Kraftwerk are probably the most extravagant electronic band in history, with their robotic image, their famous "pseudo-concerts" and totally industrial and technological concept.
