Unlike Oldfield he never stands back and laughs at his own creation. It is heavy throughout, and his influences continually jog the elbow — particularly the lugubrious touches of Mahler and the almost continuous Bach underpinning It seemed so bland, so undemanding, so uneventful I've got to admit it repays further listening, and that it is not quite the electronic Muzak I had written it off as initially.
Personally, it still does not impress me as much as either, except at a technical level.

My primitive drum machine — a Korg Mini Pops — was the sort of thing people played in pubs, but by using Sellotape I could make it play two preset rhythms at the same time, creating cool beats. Nobody knew about synthesisers back then. But I still saw Autobahn as a pop song with vocals — and I was into electronic music with no singing.
Somehow, I wanted to link it all with nature and environmental issues. Luckily, Francis Dreyfus — a sort of French Richard Branson — saw the potential and put out an initial 50, copies. At first, people took it back to the shops because they thought the white noise was a fault in the manufacturing process. But the biggest radio stations in France and Britain started playing the whole album , then the BBC used it in a documentary.
