This early example of C&C features cut-up sampled voices, Cosey's disto-guitar, Industrial sequences, melodious synths and cinematic sweeps. Archival press quote: “There are moments of great beauty like ‘Moorby’ and, equally, many moments of sheer depravity all performed with Kraftwerk’s cultured class and the hypnotic charm and deadly grace of a synthesised cobra.” Steve Sutherland Melody Maker 1982 Archival press quote: "All the world loves a love story… but 'Heartbeat' still has an edge of evil among the extensions of the pair's established scenarios."
