I can certainly picture myself driving down the freeway at night with this playing, getting lost in the music. MNTW3 is a mesmerizing, soulful release from one of the genre's masters - the best album from Robert Hood to date. "Torque One" and "Hate Transmissions" are the pivotal moments of this journey.

One of the best techno albums of this year(2012)so-far! This is music that will take you on a journey to the past, present, and future. As a album NTW3 fuses incredibly well togethe using and combining various influences and ideas with excellent direction as heard in Robert's previous quality albums: Nighttime World Vol 1&2, Internal Empire, Point Blank, Wire To Wire, and his lesser known Monobox 'Molecule' album. It's from these album influences that can be heard creating a great fusion of retro/modern techno that's deep, thoughtful, minimalistic, hard-driven, funky, futuristic, old-school and modern. Every element from rhythms to beats, loops to melodies, are all executed with amazing mathematical Hood precision as he uses his masterful skill knowing how to work and push the boundaries within minimal-techno further while still managing to remain to its truer original Detroit/UR techno roots. Each track is a individually absorbing listen that builds upon its main loops and rhythms while adding, taking away, and manipulating them creating a change and variation in its approach and techno rooted structure that also. at times, add moments of acid, Detroit tech-jazz, si-fi like ambient, raw techno, and some wonderful piano moments all thanks to Robert's excellence in timing and introduction with the execution of sounds at precise right moments. This is s moody yet captivating album that brings atmosphere and techno climax to each track, while maintaining momentum, a good pace, and balance across the album.. A diverse and intelligent and wonderful techno listen that could very well be Robert's most diverse album so-far!
