How Do You Plead? -> quasi-Todd Terry punchy beats meets Carl Craig Detroit techno/house melancholia = guilty as charged. i've had this in my stacks for ~20 years now, timeless.. Acid Eiffel is of course awesome, but this is the one I picked this one up for and it's still a prized cut in the collection after all of these years.

The first time I heard this track was on the Energy Zurich rave in Switzerland in 1993 - I have that moment captured with my video camera :) it was a very intense moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOCtnmEQnVY

After hearing of the tragedy in Paris on November 13th, 2015, this track immediately came to mind. In times of darkness, music has a way of being that beacon of hope. I refuse to immerse myself in 24 hour news, or horrid debates about why. Turn everything off, hit play, and let Laurent remove you from this world for 13 minutes plus. This track encompasses so much for so mNy different moods. When I listen now, I think of the beauty that still exists in this world. For 13 minutes, this track gives you pain, love, loss, hope, joy, and beauty. All without a single word. True music transcends language. Evil will always emerge with the cowards, with the weak...but music and love has a much larger audience. It never hides, it never dies. This track will always represent, from now on, those lost on this day. The cowards will be forgotten.

I heard "Acid Eiffel" on internet radio and had hard time finding it, I accidentally found it on one of my compilations (The History of Trance) which is the only one of few to feature it uncut and unmixed. So that was exciting. Then I proceeded to listen to it, but for some reason I wanted to hear it again and then again. So on and so forth I have been listening to it on loop for a bit over a week...home, car, at work, here and there a bit. I don't know why but it always sounds different. And now I have these things in my brain...I don't know I think they are thoughts. I keep thinking about people and life and our future. As if I was standing on top of a really tall structure and staring into the cloudy murky sky. Thinking what are these clouds going to bring. That's it, I am going to buy 2 synthesizers and I am continuing this music. I don't care about dubstep, I want more of this. I love you music, you always find ways to surprise me even after all these years...

Acid Eiffel is a classic track but I don't understand all the comments about it being 'Detroit'.
I'd say it sounds more like Chicago (Acid) House (which Juan Atkins called the type of music he and his fellow Detroit producers were making at the time Techno to differentiate it from), and early tracks by Gerald Simpson (A Guy Called Gerald), which were both the soundtrack to Manchester and the Hacienda in the late 80's where Laurent Garnier was living and working at the time, (and where he took his first steps on his musical career so would have obviously been a big influence on him) combined with more trancey elements.
I'd say it has a unique French cool, melancholy sound to it. It does have a soundtrack like quality which some Detroit Techno tracks have, but in the latter I hear a more bleak dystopian feel, and a much more machine oriented sound. Like they are letting the machines speak for themselves and creating something of a paradox. Future where there is no future. The beauty in decay. Creating something filled with warmth and emotion out of something so cold and lifeless. Almost like the machines have a soul. The Man/Machine.
Either way, whatever you want to call it, it is a great piece of music. So enjoy the Acid Eiffel. The view from up there is spectacular.

Ironically everything what Detroit ever was about got culminated in 1993 already with the 11 minute long epic journey Acid Eiffel.
