Anyway, The Voice Of America is not nearly as unlistenable as some sources would have you believe. Ever so often, a track will start out with a blast of noise that seems to be coming out of a freshly bombed electrical substation - but then it quickly subsides in favor of yet another cozy little robotic groove, going pssht-pssht (that's . soft rock ) or thwack-thwack ( C. V. hard rock ) or twang-twang (that's . Everything else is mildly cool - somewhat tame by the old Krautrock standards, and frequently spoiled by the vocals (I think the album would have worked better as a completely instrumental set, but I guess those brutal young punk intonations were very much a genre convention around 1980), but not without its own bit of decadent-robotic charm.
Cabaret Voltaire were a British music group from Sheffield, England.
