Highly acclaimed 1977 album by influential German musicians Kraftwerk. Perhaps the most accessible of Kraftwerk releases, TEE revolves around two main themes: European optimism and the blurred lines between image and reality. The title track has proved immensely important in the development of modern dance and hip-hop. This album was much more than merely Autobahn on tracks.

Kraftwerk: Trans-Europe Express

  1. Europe Endless
  2. The Hall of Mirrors
  3. Showroom Dummies
  4. Trans-Europe Express
  5. Metal on Metal
  6. Franz Schubert
  7. Endless Endless


The title track is the fourth track on the album. Sampled heavily (and without permission, much to the band's dismay) by Afrika Bambaataa on "Planet Rock", TEE was highly influential in the creation of hip-hop, thanks to its steady drum machine beat.
