This release has ''On And On'' and ''Headhunter'' replaced by ''Bytes'' and ''Aqua''.. Also ''Read Only Memory'' has been completely removed - why!? Odd that they re-released this but messed with the classic that was the original 1999 release, also messed with the original art, making this version a inferior(though sill quality) release to the 199 Transmat CD6 original!

The original Transmat CD6 release is probably the best version for 'Departure In Time' album. The art/inlay's are of much better quality to look at and feel - this re-issue has bland art and a cheap feel to he inlays, and even the disc art looks a but tacky. TRMCD6 also has 11 tracks with 'Ride' missing on this re-issue, but also the Track order is a better listening experience on TRMCD6 compared to the track order here!

This re-issue is still worth buying for the extra disc though if you already have the original.

Aril Brikha's DEEPARTURE IN TIME is considered by many to be a classic, and it's hard to argue: the smooth, Detroitian vibe of "Embrace" opens the album on a mellow but compelling note. Originally released on Derrick May's Transmat label (a mark of quality in and of itself), this reissue re-orders the tracks, and while the jazzy vibe of "Ride" is sorely missed, the additional tracks on a bonus disc helps make up for its absence. "Otill" brings up the energy a touch, though the tension between the rhythm and the long sweeps in the background keep the track flowing, while "Sweet Lullaby" pushes it further with a throbbing grace. "On & On" goes for straight techno, quick and lush, before "Setting Sun" returns to the more contemplative side of things. The title track leads the listener on a longer journey, slowly bringing in elements to contribute to the groove, and "Bytes" follows that tack. The refracting stabs of "Groove La Chord" lend themselves to a solidifying beat, while "Headhunter" winds itself up around a simple loop, and it leads into the steady thump and dub touches of "Read Only Memory." On the bonus disc, "Fuknit" kicks off with a solid drum, as the the synths bounce atop it, grounded by a funky bassline. The bass once again takes center stage on "Artoo," though Brikha hasn't abandoned his warm synths in the least. "City Slicker" is brighter, though putting it back-to-back with "Way Back," especially since they seem to share the same pad patterns, might have been an error, even if the latter track is quicker and more crisp. The wiggly "Rising Sun" offers a taste of sweetness, while some breaks spark up "Electrocity." And although "Tuff" seems to promise something rough, it still dances along the melodic edge set out before by the tracks before it; "Us (Part 1 & 2)," however, does change things up by staying solidly in a minor key, helping "Aqua" after it to dive deep into darker tones. "Lone Rider" slows things down in a simple dub techno loop to close out the album. Still seminal after all these years.

Not really sure why, with this release, they removed track 4 "Read Only Memory". It was on the original 1999 release. Although the track made a comeback in the 2011 remastered double album, albeit shuffled down to track 10. Either way, it's a killer track and it's omission - along with track 7 "On And On" - from this version, should make the choice of preference between the two easy. Get the 1999 CD. Superb Detroit sounds!

This remastered version drops "Embrace" and "Otill" from the original pressing, but includes "Way Back" (from his 1st EP on Fragile Records) and "On & On" (from his 2nd EP on Transmat Records), the tracks are a little beefed up and jumping! Nice mastering and great pressings, recommended!

Wow! I drifted away from techno after being heavily into it during the early 90's, I wished I'd hung around and heard this when it came out. Its a seriously good album, displays all the good elements of techno. It's flawless imo.

Disappointing this was pressed on vinyl with a lot of the bonus tracks completely left off.

Great album of sublime Detroit techno. But ! If you had to make a choice of the two different versions available - I would go for the original Transmat CD6 album 'Departures Of Time' version (personal preference). This is due to the better arrangement/selection and the pacing of the album tracks compared to AoV re-issue album with its re-arranged track order, with the last track 'Ride' removed, and 'Groove La Chord(The Other Mix)' replaced with a track 'Bytes' - though 'Bytes' is a quality track! Compared to the original.TRMCD6, AoV doesn't quiet flow or pace as well as the original Transmant release. Though the re-issue of AoV release is still worth picking up for the extra disc containing EP tracks not previously released on CD.

One of my favorite albums from a very high class producer. Aril's tracks have always sounded very well crafted to me and this album just shows how much work and thought is inserted into Aril Brikha's works. A must have for every EDM loving person, one of the greatest albums of all time for me.

I'm so very happy that this was reissued in (even better) remastered format. It's very chill house music sans vocals and will go with nearly any mood. The extra CD is a wonderful bonus to an otherwise classic album. A rare "5 stars" if there ever was one.
