Damn, I didn't get the free 10" of "Lost In The Silver Box" (a KILLER cut), but no worry, because this has to be one of the most unique techno forays of the 1990s. It is! Hardfloor had their own sound - sure, they like everybody else used 303s & 909s & a few peripherals, but their composition is what made them unique. This wasn't just the same old acid tracks or "hard bangers", these were actually some crispity, crunchety freekin' SOLIDLY produced tracks - with (gasp!) MUSICIANSHIP involved! Case in point - "The Last Marshmellow (sic) Machine" - how many techno tracks (I've heard not even a handful) have you heard in your life written in the never-used 12-bar structure? It's 4/4 time but instead of 16 beats per measure, there's 12 - a sort of double-timed 3/4 if you will. That's innovation kids! Try it sometime when you're writing your pathetically maligned beats and "tracks". It once happened when techno was still a wide open field to be studied and experimented with. The other tracks are a bit more standard fare but with that Hardfloor uniqueness. Definitely a cherished score (and a teaching and learning tool to be studied for future techno producers in the making) that I'm proud to now own. I had it on tape from years ago, and I finally secured a nice copy on vinyl. EXCELLENT!!!!! E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T-!-!-!-!-!
