"Late at Night" is a cool little acid number, though it's fair to say that the acid line doesn't exactly stand out. Instead, it sort of augments the percussion, and gives it (and the track more generally) a sort of stretchy, grinding type of sound. The cumulative effect is gritty and tough, like an acid techno street ruffian. Top stuff, 4/5.

For me, though, the more interesting track is Geezer's "For Sean." To begin with, you can hear shades of the old Karmic acid-trance Geezer here, though mixed with the wet, dribbly acid lines more common to his straight up acid techno (see also: Fuck the Blotters, Where's the Liquid, Mabel Syrup, and the Sheet Acid series). At the same time, the 'rhythm' acid work sounds very much like a Crash N' Burn track, or even some of the slower Audio Pancake numbers (such as Meltdown to the Millennium). And finally, the sort of haunting tone that pervades most of the track is tasty, and recalls some of the Geezer's work on Bionic Orange.

Bottom line, it's a multilayered masterpiece from the Geezer. 5/5.
