For an album landing squarely in the ultra-revered classic Detroit techno canon, from the mind of none other than the great Kevin Saunderson, this otherwise perfectly listenable album boasts a couple of utter stinkers. The opening track 'Banjo' has a parping synth riff so irritating I cannot listen for more than about two minutes before hammering the skip button. At first I very nearly gave up on the album entirely, so bad is its intro! What's even weirder is that the second track, Carl Craig's remix of World Of Deep, opens with a gorgeous wash of vintage Detroit synths that makes for a far more suitable entrance into the moodscape of the record. Cry For The Future is almost as wretched as Banjo, sounding like a crap Italo rip-off made on one keyboard in someone's bedroom. Both should have been cut from the album long before it went to the pressing plant, and you'd have a much more enjoyable listen as a result.

With "Heavenly", E-Dancer (AKA Kevin Saunderson) released one of, if not THE definitive Detroit techno album. Everything on it oozes creativity, positivity, manifesting the warm, emotional, harmonic and melodic aspects of the sometimes overly cold and indifferent techno spectrum.
Don't be fooled though, as this is no kindergarten techno. Many tracks off "Heavenly" have numerous times proved themselves to be real aces amongst the party crowds, namely the evergreen Velocity Funk, Oombah and Pump The Move (Kenny Larkin Mix).
The rest is no filler either- this is intelligent techno, that relies more on moods and providing quality listening time than superflous complexity and steel hammer like, hard club hits.
As hard as it may be to say it out loud, but this may just be Kevin's best effort to date. In this day and age when most techno artists have deviated to who knows where, releasing premeditated, souless and calculated albums, E-Dancer's musicality and ability to provoke beautiful states of mind and heart won't fail you. Essential for all techno fans.
