Tim Barr has written the 2nd major book about Kraftwerk, and if there were 10 more books about this band, we still would not know everything about the men who invented modern music. Barr has done an amazing job when you remember that the members of Kraftwerk, and the people who are closest to them, rarely give straightforward answers. Where the first book about Kraftwerk focuses around quotes from Ralf and Karl, Barr’s book has input from Wolfgang, right down to his own photo collection. Perhaps what is most amazing is that Barr has cracked the shell of KlingKlang and tells what little is known about the studio itself. This is the stuff I have always wanted to know, and Karl even gives a few sentences about the robo-voice. It seems that many of the quotes in this book have been credited to past magazine articles that I have memorized, so it is at least nice to have them all in one place.
