Got this when it came out in 1995. After all those years still one of the best techno-records ever made.
If someone, who doesn't have any clue what techno is, would ask me what techno is, I would advice to hear this record very loud.
This is techno!

Wrote a full review for this album. Fucking Discogs died on me... Fuck you!

Boring, to repetive, not fitting together. 3/5.
Check out "Aonox" very trippy and experimental shit on there and you still can dance to it!

Joey Beltram, with PLACES, secured his own place in the techno pantheon. From the bright flashes of "Instant" to the angular keyboard stabs of "GameForm," Beltram pounds his way onto the floor. "TenFour" has a gritty industrial feel to its beat, and "5.7 Litre" has a rolling darkness. "Floaters" is simpler, and "Oval" brings in some bongo tones into its percussion. But "Nameless" brings back the darkness in spades, and the hidden track after just reinforces the strong points of the album. Techno the way it was meant to be, back in the day.

beltram is at his prime on this release, forging a sound distinctively his own. cold, stripped down and in your face, this is techno from the streets of Queens NYC. methodical and sparse, managing to create a sense of space that has been rarely heard before or since.

The starting point of Beltram's obsessive techno period! In this one, and in nearly all of his releases since, he seems to concentrates on each sound with an obsessive sense of perfection, sculpting shapes an frequencies to offers blasting density AND subtle variations. The influence on later minimal techno is huge, even, this one is not exactly minimal : the sound is HUGE, and a real blast, even on a personal stereo equipment ! <BR>The downside is the same as on Jeff Mill's work, that has an overall similar evolution : sounds great, but melodies are not the matter (and sometime even ot here!)
