Each track here is quality, a different change for the Gescom sound using their machines to create an electro sound with groove. "Puzl" is straight up electro similar to cybotron or early electro influences. "Go Sumo" is a breakbeat track, and "Go Sheep" is a slower cut, which sounds like a combination of old with the new..Excellent ep.

One of Autechre's Gescom collective's finest moments - three tracks that straddled the duo's period between dance floor accessibility and MSP-inspired electronic geekery, The Sounds of Machines updates Kraftwerk's legacy with stunningly original results that haven't aged in the 10 years since it was produced.
'Puzl' sounds like 'Metal on Metal', all hissing machinery and otherworldy percussion. 'Go Sumo' is possibly the group's most listener-friendly outing to date, a shimmering electro track, while 'Go Sheep' takes the former track's main melody and twists it round slo-mo midnight dub kickdrums.

The clear vinyl version of Sounds of Machines does not actually exist, despite being listed in some discographies...

Puzl makes judicious use of Cybotron's Clear (it also inspired the name of the label), a seminal tune from back in the day that many believe kicked off the whole electronic music shebang in the first place. Thank you, Juan Atkins.
