It's easier to dissmiss people's fascination with robots or any metal-made thing in a human-like shape, but there's some beauty into the idea.

They could be good or bad, helpful or malicious, walk in a strange way or even talk in beeps and pieces, just like us. It's only natural that music writers, non mechanic ones, are still insisting after all these years of bringing space, earth and laboratory together, so that any bounderies existing between humans and robots cese and desist. Here are a few selections that remind us that.
