hmm well what to say about this one? one of the many stabs at a "techno album" that appeared in the mid to late 90s, but does it really gel as an album? or does it sound more like a collection of tracks that were sitting on his hard drive? Clearly it genuflects at the alter of Detroit techno so it probably keeps the purists happy. Personally, the "home listening" aspect was not to my tastes, but was sold on three tracks that might be useful on the dance floor: Lucky Strike, Snakebite, and V-Ger.

No comments yet??? This album is full of very melodic and warm techno, with some trips to future jazz (Herbie On Rhodes) and some real techno stompers for the dancefloor (Bad Coffee, and V-Ger). I really like this album. The melodies are multi-layered and the percussions and basslines are deep and ever changing. Together with Archive One (Mr. Dave C.) this one is still in my toplist of techno albums ever!

<I>Technoir</I> is bright, shimmering tech-house from one of the masters, Lars Sandberg -- better known here as Funk D’Void. The synths are clean and sharp, and the beats are dancefloor-ready. But what elevates this album above other is the careful songcraft. Instead of simply looping the same melody, Sandberg varies the sounds, so that they never grow stale. Thus, “Martian Love Dance” has a melodic shift halfway through, while “Herbie on Rhodes” has a jazzy feel to it. “Bad Coffee,” on the other hand, is an aggressive thumper; “Dope Lullaby” goes more mellow; and “Angelic Upstart,” more shiny tech-house, is one of my favorite tracks on here. “V-Ger” delivers more wiggling vibes that you’ve come to love. The second disc, a live cd, is just icing on the cake. So go ahead and dig in!

First Techno album I really liked from the time I began to explore house genres other than hardcore ;). This album has so many diverse tracks you can listen to it dayly. The tracks are well arranged and even after twenty times you can still hear new tings and things. Good funky melodic techno with nice atmosphere. Love it!
