Superb music by Mr. Atom-Schmidt. Witty, funky, and seductive. I can't stop playing it. "I Hear a New World" is as mournful as I've ever heard him, and HD Endless, I believe, blew out the amp, or speakers, in my car, it's soooo looowww and loouuuddd. Just more wonderful music from The Man himself.

Let's face it, Atom Heart's post-2000 output can get a bit strange and experimental. I've been filling out my RI back catalog and many fail to impress after the novelty wears off. Stereonerds, however, stands out as a solid winner.

Solid, strong beats and grooving deep bass coupled with low BPMs make this a foot tapping / head bopping experience. Sure, it's got typical RI repetitiveness, but it's never out of control and manages to stay interesting.

Some are calling this electro. I suppose that can be said, but I'd say only track 2 really fits the true electro definition. At times it feels more like electro-techno-ambient, if such a genre existed. You often see hints of Atom's ambient-laden past. It's also very Kraftwerkellian, especially Transhuman, Prazision and HD Endless. I'm sure the "HD Endless" title (and the tune itself) is a hat-tip to KW.

My favorite is the extremely funky Harddisk Rock. Maybe a nod to Planet Rock there? The squiggly bass delights to no end. We also get a nice track #4 which would be at home on a Lassigue Bendthaus album.

Quite an interesting collection, and well worth your time even if you have been a bit disappointed with Uwe lately.

Yeah, this is a great release. There are similarities to Mono(tm), and earlier Atom Heart releases, but it brings a new perspective, also. Like Reagenz or similar, establishing a new vector... admittedly in familliar terrain, but new non-the-less. Transhuman Melody is a beautiful fixation. Valued listen.

Possibly the most straight forward release from RI since probably Fonosandwich or thereabouts. People have mentioned this is an Electro album. The last 3 seconds tell us that E is for Electro. harkening back to Mono(trademark) the other "electro" album.
Is this a signal of things to come with the latest batch of RI releases?
