I love me some Hardfloor, but this early techno sound pales in comparison to what they've done as of late. For example, the almost the first three minutes of Mustard Cornflakes was painful. Lots of annoying synth patterns. If you think this still has quality groove, you should listen to their latest album.

I have to throw my moneys' worth in on this too, This LP was the one that got me hooked after some deliberation.
I had, like so many people been wary of techno as to start with it always seemed to come over as aggressive in attitude, Now i can gladly say i was wrong, As its all about energy.
This LP also serves as a great example to the fact that i have always been more fascinated by what a couple of guys can do than a bunch of guys with guitars, And boy can Ramon and Oliver do it, And in spades.

For sheer class check out mahogany roots' irresistability and a good time boogie, Or the last marshmellow machine, Not only is it wonderfully bouncy, Its incredibly emotional, Building up to a massive hair-raising session after the middle breakdown.

Im on my second copy of this lp as the original is full of static but still plays, And thats a testament to the longevity of this record, It was out 1995 yet it still sounds good today as it did back then.

Absolutely Top Notch!

All the tracks on this album are very well produced and although the sound is reminiscent of qaulity techno from the mid 90's it still one of those albums that most techno lovers would find timeless. Reverbrate Opinion, Asbestos in Obstetrics, Mahogany Roots, Mustard Cornflakes and the Last Marshmellow Machine all have fantastic mind bending moody acidic rhythms and atmospheric sounds that innevitably makes you groove to as they build up.

one of my favorite techno releases ever, a testament to Hardfloor's unique style and influence on many genres of dance music. Mahogany Roots and Reverberate Opinion are my two favorite Hardfloor tracks from over the years and both are on this disc... just those two are worth getting this for! if you get tired of hard, unemotional and machinelike techno, grab this album and see how funk still lives with certain producers.
