Wonderful early 90s nonsense from Apollo 440. They became better known as a second tier big beat act and you can certainly hear the roots of that sound in the over-excited rock riffage and that daft half-whispered vocal style so beloved of Brit-tronica acts from the period. Nonetheless this is really a popped-up approximation of first-gen progressive house. Check out their remix of Mukkaa's "Buruchaca" on Limbo or those unaccountably brilliant Deep Forest takes on Liquid Cool for the links back to the serious prog scene. If you can accept (or better yet, celebrate) the datedness, this is a massive sugar-rush for any fans of Fluke circa '93 or Evolver-era Grid. Swaggering dub basslines, nonsense lyrics and incongruous references to Jean Baudrillard abound. When an impeccably stupid acid house cover of Don't Fear The Reaper fires up you'll have to hold back desperately from cracking a massive grin. Don't fight it, feel it.

I checked this out after hearing Deep Forest's absolutely phenomenal remix of "Liquid Cool" on Sasha & John Digweed's Northern Exposure. Apollo 440 is a 90's techno act through and through, but create a little variety with their judicious infusion of guitars and jock rock motifs. I enjoyed the original version of "Liquid Cool" (though it doesn't even compare to the aforementioned remix), I really enjoyed "Omega Point" with it's gorgeous downtempo groove and trippy samples, but didn't care for much else on the album. High energy rock techno, super cheesy synth lines (think Nintendo 64 racing game cheesy and you'll get the idea), and bad vocoder vocals. "Film Me & Finish Me Off" and "Pain Is A Close Up" are bearable (the former actually being a decent techno tune), but this stuff is really too dated for contemporary electronic tastes to enjoy.

Very much an album of its time, with a heavy sound lacking much subtlety - though it does have its moments, particularly the KLF-like "I Need Something Stronger". The album's lyrics are often hilarious, though it's impossible to tell whether or not this was deliberate.
