Anyone else's copy kind of lacking in the bass department compared to the original pressing??

Finding and reading about this now halfway thru 2015 is really bending my mind. Warping my perceptions about other music made with this as its backbone (like the Regis/Surgeon camp) from using samples - no mention of the originals left me in the dark. Brilliant works at the beginning of this amazing IDM/EDM movement. Such a powerful creation of artistry to have stood the test of time and become consumed in some ways like the infamous amen breakbeat.

For anyone thinking about taking the plunge this reissue was done beautifully. I would have loved a 2xLP but the press and mastering are outstanding on this. And I usually am skeptical of remastering claims but I have OGs in decent shape to compare them Better? I'm not totally sure yet but different and very very good. This sounds amazing especially super loud. Props soulsheriff. and a download code, can't hate on that I might actually use it for once

It's great to see a CD reissue of this incredibly important album. Tracks like "Los Niños Del Parque," "Peut Etre... Pas," and "Avant - Après Mars" inspired house and techno producers in the mid-eighties (and on). Unfortunately, looking at these tracks on this CD version in a wave editor, they all have clipping. The sound quality is much better on compilation appearances. I haven't been able to track down the Roadrunner Records version yet to do a comparison.

Nowadays I hear all over the place people claiming that 'minimal is the sound of moment', and I sincerely imagine what would be the reaction of those who really understand about music on this kind of declaration.

The ones impressed by the 'innovations' of the new minimal dance music movement certainly never heard (or simply don't know that) Liaisons Dangereuses, a group composed by Chrislo Haas, Beate Bartel and Krishna Goineau were behind a quintessential underground minimal dance music act more than two decades ago, in 1981 - and it became a huge reference to an incredible amount of producers since then, from the artists that remixed "Los Ninos Del Parque" (the biggest album's anthem) on Madcat (by Gabi Delgado & Saba Komossa from Delkom) and on Mute Records (by Renegade Soundwave) to other artists that sampled Liaisons through the years such as Torsten Fenslau on Out Of The Ordinary - "Play It Again (The Los Ninos Mix)" (1989), "Der Erdbeermund" (1989) by Sigmund Und Seine Freunde, and Carl Craig on 'BFC - Galaxy' (1990).

"Liaisons Dangereuses" LP was an absolutely shocking piece of art back in the very early eighties when it was released (1981) for its bold, avant-garde, unlabeable, atonal, rather abstract, minimalistic and most of all singular perspective of dance music. All of the tracks have a very obscure & out-of-the-usual atmosphere based on a combination of weird vocals, minimal synthesizers lines (which is not by coincidence the basic pattern of most of the alternative dance music nowadays), industrial noises and other strange types of interventions.

If you listen carefully to every single track on this extraordinary album, you'll find out elements that have been influencing many of the dance music genres since then. It's definitely a 'must listen', a 'must have', a 'must know'. A reference to the entire World of electronic dance music.

Incredible Disco Punk albulm produced by
Conny Plank in the early 80s. Peerless, Sublime,
Seminal and Absolutely Essential.

Trivia:
BFC (aka Carl Craig sampled "peut etre pas"
on galaxy
Apparently, the late grate legend Ron Hardy
played "Peut Etre Pas" at the notoriously influential
MUSIC BOX.

Dig deep in your pockets if you see this anywhere.
it's an extremely rare record.
