Computer World – Computer World (German: Computerwelt) is the eighth studio album by German electronic music band Kraftwerk, initially released on 10 May 1981. The album deals with the themes of the upward thrust of computers within society. Consistent with the album’s concept, Kraftwerk showcased their music on an ambitious world tour and issued a few different versions of the single “Pocket Calculator” in different languages: namely, German (“Taschenrechner”), French (“Mini Calculateur”) and Japanese (“Dentaku”, or ??). A fifth version, in Italian (“Mini Calcolatore”), was once lip-synched to on Italian tv in 1981. The compositions are credited to Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider, and Karl Bartos. As was once the case with the two previous albums, Computer World was once released in both German- and English-language editions. The title of the final track, “It is More Fun to Compute”, is in English in all releases, as it’s in line with the slogan “It is more fun to compete!”, which may well be seen on old pinball machines.
