A concept album exploring themes of broadcast communications, RadioActivity marked Kraftwerk's return to more obtuse territory, extensively utilizing 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 realized electro-pop effort to date, while The Voice Of Energy precipitates the robot voice so crucial to their subsequent work.
