This is a phenomenal album! First listen I thought not bad. Then the more you listen to it the deeper you get sucked in and you hear more layers to it. Some of the songs you just wish they went on for longer. "The needs of the many" as an example. Wow top stuff.

Probably the best record Luke Slater has ever done and most likely ever will. Beautiful IDM/electronica/techno album. Prices are a little crazy on this. Found mine for less than a tenner on ebay a few years back, just keep your eye out!!. GPR did some cracking stuff back in the early /mid nineties, Black Dog, Radioactive Lamb etc. A great sunday afternoon chill listen with the paper!!

Luke slater trounces so many others who try too hard, like global communications etc. I can recall buying Model 500 records from upastaris at Jelly Jam sooo many years ago now. Luke was there at the beginning and will most likely be there at the end.

this album is a complete opposite of his x-tront series. i bought this upon release thinking id get more of the same, and was totally surprised at how different it was. i wasn't disappointed and used several of the tracks for DJing.

A quality album top to bottom (terrible cover aside!!!) - 8/10

I got this when it came out in 1994 and was really disappointed. It just seemed flat, and bland, and trying to hard to sound beautiful. And the cover design was awful. But I persevered: if ever a release rewarded repeated listenings, this is it. So many hidden levels, so much variety of styles. Very subtle, and very beautiful: without trying too hard!

Think Global Communication meets Kenny Larkin and both doing their finest. This in absolute essential for collectors of Warp heads and probably the best GPR release EVER!. Its a more intelligent sound than the stuff he's been pigeon-holed into and up-there in the finest electronica LP's of that year.
