Notes

Track durations not listed on release.
Sides A through C are 33 ⅓ RPM and sides D through F are 45 RPM.

The text inside the skull on the cover reads, "not even the dreamer is wide awake". The rest is quoted from Prospero, the protagonist of William Shakespeare's play The Tempest: "And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, / Leave not a rack behind: we are such stuff / As dreams are made on, and our little life / Is rounded with a sleep." In context, Prospero is constructing a metaphor on ephemerality to halt the play-within-a-play; critics of Shakespeare believe it was his way of announcing his retirement from writing, and he would die 5 years after the play was written.

I do appreciate this album but it is nothing so new or so terrificly groundbreaking. If you take an absolute masterpiece in minimalistic techno as "Headphoneasy rider" by Peter Ford (not mentioning many Function releases ...) you will find that everything was there (well, to be honest, PMOD does not use claps or snare drums !!!). The trancey and progressive feeling is an intelligent add-on to the genre, but the hype over this one is in many ways misleading.

Edit: What's wrong with people? A solid share of the recent repress apparently when straight to discogs for profit. Shame on you.

If you have just a tiny bit of patience, just wait a couple of months and save yourself some £25+ and buy both records straight from the source for the price of one. They will repress (again) for sure.

As far as the music goes, this is indeed a quality dub techno album. Not a 5/5, but you're gonna have to search a loooong time to find something that matches both the talent and caliber of musical exploration on this 3x12" .... for £25 quid. 'The Vibe' and 'Deep In Your Heart' are my personal favorites.

I received two copies of side C/D but no A/B. Contacted the label so fingers crossed they have some backup discs.

On the website of https://allpossibleworlds.de/shop/ it says "shipping starts second week of march". Somebody already received theirs? I know I'm a bit impatient ... ;)

Deep in your heart without the vocals would not have the "mainstream" effect it has and it would be just another generic track. Vocals make the track, as most of the really memorable Traumprinz tracks.

ya'll wait 10 years and see if you change your mind about the vocals if this guys put them there there's a reason and i personally think they're really good. I love this album.
