This is what I had to say about it in 2001: Generally recognized as C2's 5-star album, although I think it stumbles a couple of times. It is Detroit techno and it isn't. Future R&B, deep house, and even scat color the mix. The elements that make the Innerzone Orchestra album falter are thankfully absent, and the album's high points—such as the Derrick May collaboration "Frustration"—are well worth the wait. I just wish Craig would relax a little. He tries too hard to be provocative, and ends up sounding pretentious.

When I first heard Televised Green Smoke in '96, '97...I knew I was deprived of something that was lost a long time ago...at this time, for many reasons Detroit techno/electronica was something that was overshadowed by all the hype from the current growing trends of electronic music ...unfortunetly still to this day, many Americans themselves are uneducated about the history and future of the Detroit culture, and how important it is.

In my opinion, I think this album was one of the few major releases that marked the begining of the Detroit Techno revival...although there is hardly any actual blatant "techno" on here, the album still carries the essense of it through the production...this sound was still
new to a lot of people...this was an album that needed to be made.

There's a darkness and sadness that swirls through tracks like "Frustration", "Goodbye World", "Red Lights"...probably among the most visual and emotional tracks I have heard to date...there are also lighter moments to balance it all out: "Dominias", "Dreamland", and "Televised Green Smoke"...the album as a whole made a very important statement at the time...listen all the way towards the hidden track to get the entire picture.

Carl Craig's music has a very bluesy feel to it. It shows mechanical coldness whilst maintaining soul and humanity within. At first, one will experience an ickyness to the material which comes from the sound of the synthesizers, but televised green smoke will entrap the heart. The last few songs and some of the strange fillers will disappoint many, but the main tracks are sheer beauty. Dreamland, Butterflies, At les, AND Dominas are similar, interconnectable, and subtly, astonishingly, adorable. Lyrics in those songs would have been better than an acapella at the end.
