I first heard Oppenheimer Analysis' "Devils Dancers" in a CBS Top 100 and to be honest, even though I liked the song, didn't really get into their sound until a couple of years later. I don't even know how exactly. I guess their music was just always around and over time I learned to appreciate it. The instrumentals are really catchy, the vocals have a cool sound to them and the lyrics are just next level. I mean take for example:

If the radiance of a thousand suns
Were to burst into the sky
That would be like the splendor of the Mighty One
I am become Death
Destroyer of Worlds

Seriously how sick is that, especially when knowing that the last two lines are from the Bhagavad Gita, cited by Robert Oppenheimer to express his disappointment in his Manhattan project.

Overall quality of this release is really good. The recordings are clear, nice and loud. 3 songs a side, 45 rpm on black vinyl. High quality sleeve with lyrics.
It really doesn't get much better than this.

Favorite Track: Martyr.

5 Stars!

Wow, amazing! It's almost unbelievable this music was made in the beginning '80's, having so much elements and sounds used later on into '90's & '00's electronic, techno & trance music productions. This definitely must have been something underground & science fiction back then. Accidentally discovered oppenheimer analysis around 2009, still today i'm amazed with these guys performed back in 1982.Those punchy basslines, sweet synths, subtle beats and analog sounds are candy for the ears of electronic music lovers. With the nice '80's sounding vocals & lyrics, this music could have been taken from a '80's sci-fi movie. Very interesting for me as an electronic music lover is to understand and discover how it al began, this album is definitely an example of todays electronic music. I'm glad this album is re-released today. Simply great! Best tracks in my opinion are: the devil's dancers, cold war, subterranean desire, and men in white coats.
