So this dinky and repetitive drum machine and synth beat is playing, and a dude's whining over it, and you think that more drums or a guitar or a melody or something are going to kick in soon so the song can start. Joke's on you! Track 2: steady drum machine and synth, dude whining, end of song. This formula gets a workout over eight tracks with a couple of deviations (once, an actual riff!) and some catchy Kraftwerk melodies, but it's mostly like the disc has been shot up with Novocain.
