Electric Cafe

The ninth studio album  originally released in 1986. It was re-released under its original working title, Techno Pop, in 2009. The initial 1986 Electric Café came in versions sung in English and German, as well as a limited “Edición Española” release, featuring versions of “Techno Pop” and “Sex Object” with only Spanish lyrics. It was the first Kraftwerk LP to be created using predominantly digital musical instruments, although the finished product was still recorded onto analog master tapes.

Not their best but still hugely influential.
