The 30 Best Krautrock Albums

Confusing news, everyone! Despite a lack of interest in my college years by yours truly, for some reason I’ll take up any opportunity to visit. And that’s what is happening this weekend. I’m going to Allentown for the event that is “Homecoming,” where I’ll see old friends and sworn enemies (only they don’t know they’re sworn enemies; our rivalries are a little one-sided), and scope out eighteen year old girls, and wonder why I can’t be that age again.

Hey, it’s Friday. This is such a cop-out, but I’ve gotta leave soon so I can’t spend a lot of time dissecting some obscure topic. Since I ordered a copy of the Harmonia Musik Von Harmonia re-issue, why don’t we talk about Krautrock for our weekly top-ten.
