From http://music.hyperreal.org/library/publicity/plastikman/sheet_one_arrest:

"Plastikman's Sheet One
A Case of Mistaken Identity

New York, NY -- On Monday, July 27, a 20 year old in Rockwall, Texas
(just outside Dallas) on his way to visit his girlfriend in the next
town was pulled over by the police for speeding. He was asked to step
outside the car so the police could search it.

Inside the car, the police found was NovaMute Records' Plastikman Sheet
One CD. Apparently believeing that the perforated artwork of the CD
booklet might contain "controlled substances", the young man was arrested
and booked on suspicion of "possession of a controlled substance." This
charge is considered a 2nd degree felony/schedule 1, that means the
punishment can be 2-20 years with up to a $10,000 fine.

The young man's father called Mute Records New York office for help in
trying to convince the police the CD booklet was artwork. Mute Records
couriered a sealed shrink-wrapped CD to the father to show to the police.

The young man spent 5 1/2 days in jail and was released this past weekend
on $5500 bail, and a trial date has now been set for August 23rd. Currently
the polic are testing the CD booklet in a lab. Results will not be ready
for three weeks.

PLASTIKMAN is Richie Hawtin, one of the most revered figures in the global
techno underground. He is the founder of +8 Records and the man behind
F.U.S.E. and Circuit Breaker. Richie Hawtin is also known as one of the
world's top DJs for his trance, ambient techno music. PLASTIKMAN's
Sheet One is a trip through the highlights of the electronic underground.
Mind music for the post-acid generation.

At press time, it is unclear whether NovaMute Records will include this
artwork in future PLASTIKMAN Sheet One CDs."

From https://www.wired.com/1994/11/just-say-no-to-techno/:

"According to Hawtin, the whole Plastikman album was "written as an analogy of a trip, either a journey or an acid trip. It is very repetitive and builds in intensity, reaches a high point and then comes down." The artwork was part of the concept and is chemically inert. Says Hawtin of the arrest, "I don't think anyone thought something like this could happen.""

Classic album but 90s picture discs don't sound the best. It's a cool looking pressing but the sound quality is pretty poor. Great tunes though.

as a young man living in glasgow i had this on tape and around midnight i would set out on my cruise around kelvingrove park but would never focus on what was before me until side 4 which is the weakest. listening now what really strikes me is the use of what we now call field recordings (or if less generous then hiss) to give a sense of space around the acid lines and drums. this record will always mean a lot to me not least for all the cock i got once side 4 started

Better be careful when driving & havin' this in your car: "The cover was so realistic that a man in Texas was arrested when a police officer saw the CD on his car seat after pulling him over on a traffic violation."

In dance music most of the attention in Acid House (88-89) went towards Rave (89-94) which includes hardcore techno. While Acid House clearly had minimalistic and abstract elements, Rave and eventually Gabber (93-96) lost that. This record fills the gap towards more obscure continuation of abstract music: Minimal Techno. For that reason this record is of importance in music history.
It is more sophisticated and abstract and less danceable than Acid House. In addition it is Techno but has no Detroit Techno feel to it. For Acid House lovers this record is an ending point and for Minimal Techno fans it's the starting point.

As stated in the description of other versions of the album, the samples in Smak, are actually from the old American science fiction TV show, "The Outer Limits". Specifically, they are from the pilot episode, titled "The Galaxy Being". Just watched it for the first time last night.
The "grave voice" is actually an alien telling mankind how misguided their ways are, right after the local military/police have shot at it.
The same episode was sampled more extensively by Gigi Galaxy (Gary Martin) for his "Interview With An Alien" EP, on Teknotika Records.

Here is the episode:

I bought this off a guy, without knowing that it lacked Okx, Helikopter, and Glob. Okx is no biggie, but Helikopter, and Glob are 2 I wish I had. I was dissapointed. It does, however, have the banger Spastik, which I can play out, in certain types of gigs. I'll have to get the other 2x LP version, with all the tracks.
