Glenn? That's Glenn Henriksen (or whatever his full name is) as in Porsgrunn's answer to Jean Michel Jarre, isn't it?

Actually, I haven't received it yet (should get here tomorrow) so I'll let you know what I think later. I'm not actually a non-synth fan. I started buying synth albums produced on Moog and Arp synthesizers back in the late 60s & early 70s and have a big collection of Vangelis and Jarre from later. I'm just not that big of a fan of most synth film scores although I do buy some from time to time. In fact right behind me as I type this sits a Roland Fantom synth workstation that I play with all the time. Wish I could play the keyboard better!

Chandra...interesting. So you're not one of the many TD fans on this board who refuse to buy anything by TD after 1987? :-D

How is Chandra? I will probably buy Views From A Red Train before, which I have heard many people praise.

I have to admit that I have never been a big fan. I always found their music too sterile and robotic. They didn't have the warmth of, say, Tangerine Dream. But I'll give it a chance. It's my first Kraftwerk album.

I have heard Autobahn now, and I have to say it didn't exactly blow my socks off. Too primitive and old school for my taste, I guess. But of course, the title track has its moments.

For me, that's one of the album's most attractive qualities. The music has an organic quality that is almost nonexistent in synth-based recordings I've heard from later decades, which sound too processed and polished to my ears.
