Beautiful sounds on this one. Especially the title track (sends shivers down the spine each time) and its second half, Metal on Metal. Perfectly captures the drama, the peace, the continuity and the excitement of a train trip across Europe. Showroom Dummies is also an awesome track - a quirky, robotic-sounding song with the coolest plot ever. (showroom dummies come to life!!!) At the moment, this, plus Radioactivity (1975) and Tour de France Soundtracks (2003) are my favourite albums.

I cannot match the descriptions already given to this album by the professional reviewers above, but I have loved this album since I was 7 years old. Listening to it today, it's hard to believe it was recorded in 1977. You can easily hear how they influenced electronic music. One of my favorite albums of all time.

This is not dance, it is not hip hop, it is tinny boring and repetitive. I am sorry this is not my type of music. I bought this from this site after reading the description. It definitely does not fit the description.

To try to attempt to look at this album as a dance album is to misinterpret what the music of Kraftwerk actually is. It has more connection to the art rock of Yes, Pink Floyd, and early Genesis. The beauty of this album is not in what is played but how everything is played. It's minimalist and simplistic, yet it seems like it's so much more than simple synthesizer attacks. It is the predecessor of electronic music, utilized a lot in hip-hop and modern dance. One just has to listen really carefully to understand. Overall, Trans-Europe Express is a must-own for all music aficionados.
