I have to admit that although I consider myself a seriously die-hard Panasonic fan, this release (the full-length album "A") is perhaps what I consider to be the weakest link in the chain of their incredible discography. Don't get me wrong, this is by no means a "bad" release, but to my own ears, I feel that there is much lacking from the Finnish boys this time around. The general feeling seems to be a lack of energy or intensity which is usually predominant in their recordings. Again, Panasonic explore a mixture of rhythms (very dub-raggah at times, and non-regular step patterns), repetitive electronics, and noisy soundescapes. But once again, my own feelings towards this release is that it never seems to take off; it barely glides around ground level, and seems more concentrated on their experimental ambient side than their harsher rhythm style. But perhaps this was their intention, since a few months later they released the EP "B", which is as close to dancefloor Panasonic as one can get.

the first release after they were forced to change their name from panasonic to pan sonic. this is the title's origin, as they took up again therein the lost "A".
