Kraftwerk celebrate Europe's romantic past and shimmering future with a glistening panorama of elegance and decadence, travel and technology. The infinite vistas of "Europe Endless" and "Endless Endless'" bookend the album, which includes the unsettling kafka-esque fable "The Hall of Mirrors" and "Showroom Dummies" - Kraftwerk's elegantly ironic reply to critiques of their deadpan manner. But it is the streamlined rhythmic locomotive of Trans Europe Express which dominates with its doppler-effect melodic swerves and hypnotic, pneumatic, piston-pumping rhythm. Poetry in motion.
