Computer World captured the band right at the moment when its pioneering approach fully broke through in popular music, Thanks to the rise of synth pop, hip-hop, and electro as Arthur Baker sampled Tans-Europe Express for Planet Rock and disciples like Depeche Mode, OMD, and Gary Numan scored major hits, Computer World demonstrated that the old masters still had some last tricks up their collective sleeves. Compared to earlier albums, it fell readily in line with the Man-Machine, eschewing side-long efforts but with even more of an emphasis on shorter tracks mixed with longer but not epic compositions.

Parlophone are reissuing Kraftwerk albums on limited edition coloured vinyl in October. 

Autobahn (1974), Radio-Activity (1975), Trans-Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991) and Tour De France (2003) are the UK albums in question. Each is pressed on 180g coloured vinyl (mostly translucent colours) and all come with 12, 16 or 20-page booklets.

There will also be some German editions too. These are the five German language versions and Radio-Activät which features German song titles on the artwork but contains the same audio as the UK pressing.

Kraftwerk coloured vinyl LPs use the 2009 remasters and are released on 9 October 2020 via Parlophone.
