Limited LP : Translucent Yellow Vinyl / 16-Page Booklet
A concept album exploring themes of broadcast communications, Radio-Activity marked Kraftwerk's return to more obtuse territory, extensively utilising static, oscillators, and even Cage-like moments of silence to approximate the sense of radio transmission; a pivotal record in the group's continuing development, the title track -- the first they ever recorded in English -- is their most fully realised electro-pop effort to date, while "The Voice of Energy" precipitates the robot voice so crucial to their subsequent work.
