In opposition to the review below, imho this release falls nothing short of a great album and a trendsetting work. Although of course Mathias Schaffhåuser did not invent minimal techno, this album paved the way, at the closing of the nineties era, for the minimal craze that was to follow during the early years of the next decade and set the benchmark for much of the Force Tracks later releases, with inspired tunes very different than your average minimal track in its creative use of vocals in tracks full of pop references such as "Nice To Meet You", "Zeit Rint", "Desire" and "Loom Service", while at the same time offering some very good uptempo minimal techno tracks full of soul and personality like "Prost" and "Ach, Das Glauben..." and even some electro-inspired beats in "Lido Hotel" and a midtempo minimal groove in "Teenage Alibi". This is definitely an album to check out for those wishing to go further in their quest for quality minimal electronica.

A pretty fair album full of slightly deep and slightly quirky tracks. Nothing outstanding and nothing horrible. Armchair minimal for a quiet get together with friends after a night out. Standout tracks are Desire & Loom Service. Might as well get the cd version because it has more tracks and costs less if you want to buy it. Again, pretty fair stuff here.
