WHAT an album.
Very experimental and noisy.
This album is not good for clubbing, because mostly tracks are very "heavy" to consum by a normal party crowd.
Play loud and use the +Band of the MID-EQ. ;)

I´m listening this right now! All I can say is that Emmanuel Top belongs amongst the greatest electronic music producers of all time!

Whole album is full of extreme noises and experimental soundscapes. Just listen the second track and compare it to the modern dubstep sound. Very experimental and same time very very minimal. I think Richie Hawtin and pals must have taken a lot of influence for the minimal sound they are presenting today. Most of the track contain well produced acid lines (the same way mister Top´s other classic releases, such as So Cold and Turkish Bazar). The tracks also last very long... they might have moments when you think that something is ending but suddenly the track re-emerges and the hypnothic vibe turns the final gear on! All in all, this should be considered as a firm classic!

This album is marked as minimal and acid. After many listening, i found also quite experimental. Long tracks with very slow evolve. Very specific samples like lightbolts, electric charges, industrial noises, clashes. Very emotional in way of listener's actual settings and environment. Every listening is quite different as well the feel from it. Whole album has running story, check the namings of tracks, so try to not shuffle on very first listening. You can find various beats, but in fact all the focus of Emmanuel seems to be in layers, an efects and rythm sections. The drums are more on the backkground or as the point of connection between the tracks, but don't wory, you will enjoy some repetetive beats as well.

An absolute all time classic techno album. Although quite minimalist this record takes you on a journey of soundscapes, building you up into a frenzy, waiting for the beat to kick in and when it does it doesn't disappoint. A perfect after club chillout record.
