Kraftwerk visited Moscow in mid February and I just couldn't miss it. The show was great, and even minor glitches added to the overall atmosphere, not distracted from it. Best show I've been to in several years. Among other emotions it gave me an idea - which I present here in a compilation form. It consists of songs in which the vocals are performed through vocoder - sometimes to great effect. There are songs which are among my favourites - like Man Parrish or, especially, Ceramic Hello one. The latter is truly an unsung masterpiece of synthpop, completely deserving of becoming a huge hit single even now. Other tracks are almost as impressive. All in all 14 tracks, exactly an hour long. I selected only songs where vocals are strictly or mainly vocoder. Hope you enjoy this one - though by the end I've been a bit scared (if that's the right word) by the relentless robotism of it all. So be wary of playing it in the dark, I suppose :D
