Storytelling might get confused you at first times and, as Juno Plus wrote, this record could sound flat because it's too interrupted. But if you see SDC live (I saw it at Dimensions, also met him, nice guy) where he plays only the music from this album you realize that this is hands-down one of the best release of the last years and those 8 songs (there 13 tracks but there are 8 true songs, the rest are music or story interludes) are just stunning.

Live is awesome as well, starts a bit slow (The Love Quadrant as first track doesn't work even if it's his best) but then gets lovable and danceable (even under the rain as happened). Technically he doesn't do much, the tracks are just identical to the album and he just links all the tracks with drum elements from the former track while he talks on it.

Oh yeah, I forgot, SDC is my favorite producer, he linked brilliantly Drexciya, sci-fi and funk all together, hard to believe it but he made it, so talented.

a mind blowing dystopian travel through time and space. Great concept and sounds. Reminds me to Drexciya, Prince, UR, Boards of Canada, Luke Vibert.

Absolutely stunning release from SDC, who's ascent into the upper echelons of the R&S roster has been pretty meteoric. Early works showed promise, and the first couple of releases on R&S were high quality, but occasionally lacking consistency. This though takes it to the next level.
I think it was DJ mag used the word "preposterous" in their review, and indeed, on one level, the concept album / sci-fi story backdrop to this long-player is just that, but it is part of the whole appeal. How he manages to get everything _just_right_ is beyond me:
From the sci-fi atmospherics and "Hitchhikers Guide"-style machine voices, to the authentic Detroit and disco-funk referencing sounds, from the analog synth washes and juicy reverbs to the superlative quality of the tunes as standalone entities, all in a balanced combination of sexy and sleazy with spacey and funky, I cannot fault this album. Touches such as a "Star Wars"-referencing "never tell me the odds" only add to the appeal. Musically, Everyone from Human League to UR, Egyptian Lover to Carl Craig is welcome to this party; it is like hearing something you have always known but long forgotten.
And on top of that the vinyl double-pack is a treat, including a CD of the album (very useful) and 70s style insert (only inner sleeves would have been better), and furthermore there was also the off-chance of picking up a green-coloured copy. (I wasn't so lucky)

Just a quick "heads-up", there is absolutely no way of telling what colour vinyl you are getting if the item is still sealed.....you have to open it up and have a look, I know, I've got both. I got a green vinyl copy due to my savvy vendor opening it up, checking and then advertising the fact that it was an extremely ltd green vinyl copy.....happy hunting!
