This album is a big dissapointment and I'll explain why.

First off, I never heard such an incredibly brazen ripoff of Drexciya and Dopplereffekt as on the track "Extraterrestrial Time Travellers" (what's up with the spelling here BTW?). The LFO-driven squeaky synth line is a Drex trademark since the L.A.M. days, the high pitched riff at 1:35 is from Dopplereffekt's early classic "Scientist", as is the whole "We are the (blah).../ We are the (blahblah)..." lyrics thing going through the entire album: see Dopplereffekt tracks like "Scientist", "P*rno Viewer" - who of course took it from Kraftwerks "Robots" and "Pocket Calculator", but gave it a fresh, kinky and IRONIC twist, which Aux really don't. One thing Aux 88 have never been famous for is HUMOUR, so what's up with imitating the imitators? Especially considering that both acts have been around for the same period of time (since the early 1990s)?

At least, the track mentioned above is also one of the BETTER Drex/ Dopp ripoffs compared to much of the electro stuff that spawned from Europe in the last 10 years. Maybe it's the blackness and the funk despite all the nerdiness. No racism intended! No electro without funk.

I'm an Aux 88 fan since 1996, but they keep putting out sh*t from time to time and this is some of it. Already in the 90s they used to use a lot of Kraftwerk cliches from "TEE" to "Tour de France", but they also had their own unique sound, so why start imitating another Detroit acts' style now?

I don't care who is whose friend in the Detroit electro scene, I'd prefer to hear fresh and original stuff from each artist.
