About this album

The themes of Trans-Europe Express were influenced by friends who suggested writing songs about the Trans Europ Express to reflect Kraftwerk’s electronic music style. Critics have described the album as having two specific themes: celebration of Europe and the disparities between reality and image. Musically, the songs on this album differ from the group’s earlier Krautrock style with a focus on electronic mechanized rhythms, minimalism, and occasional manipulated vocals.
