My love for this album will stand until my end. "Absurd" starts the set strongly and "Atom Bomb" is one of the best big beat tracks of all time. Very nostalgic also, thanks to the unforgettable clip from the masterpiece WipEout 2097.
The rest of the CD is mostly techno, with "Kitten Moon" being far more peaceful. None filler on this musical treasure. Just beats and sweet keyboards.
A very nice soundtrack for PS1 or N64. 5/5 all the way.

Fluke's Kitten Moon is the one. Melancholic, nostalgic and unique...brilliant

A majestic, epic slab of techno coveryng nearly all bases..ambient, breakbeat, drumn n bass, trance. This stands right up there alongside Leftfield's 'Leftism', Prdogy's 'Music for the Jilted Generation, Orbital's brown album and Underworld's 'Dubnobaswithmyheadman' as flying the flag for the genre. I still fucking well love this 12+ years down the line.

I think FLUKE was very underrated! Favorite BIG BEAT / TECHNO album from all time! Respect!

The first two tracks, Absurd and Atom Bomb, are high-energy big beat songs that really catch your attention. I agree with the sentiment that the first three tracks are really good and then its pretty dull until the end. As an album, this does not accomplish much.

After listening to "Absurd" on the Tomb Raider soundtrack (the unmixed version of the Chemical Brothers' "Galaxy Bouce" being the only reason I picked it up in the first place... really!), I wondered if there was more like this from them, so I picked up this album and gave it a spin.

While "Absurd" was quite similar to the version I already knew, it was the rumbling and unstoppable bassline of "Atom Bomb" that crushed any doubt of whether or not this CD was worth the purchase. What an awesome track!

At the same time, it's sort of the climax on the album, with "Kitten Moon" and "Reeferendrum" still standing above the other tracks. It's not that the album is weak by any means, but once you have been exposed to the sonic radiation of Fluke's "Atom Bomb", the other tracks can't stand the comparison.

You can always hit the Back button to get some more of course. You know you want to!

Infrequency of highs make them sweet when they do occur. Album starts of fragmented, but really smooths out mid to late. Reminds me of some of the more advanced system 7. Perhaps a bit tough to get into but easy to stay there once you are in. Puppy is a bit more consistent, but without this there would be no Puppy.

The only thing that bothers me about this release is that it sounds rather flat. Fluke has chosen to explore the lower frequencies and at times ignores the high- and midtones that make for a crystal clear listening experience.

This CD has to be listend to through some speakers that can pick up some real low frequencys cause the bass lines on here so deep.
