Solvent shifts over to Morr Music for his visit to SOLVENT CITY, and the perkiness of "A Panel Of Experts" might be enough to get you to move permanently, and "Some Assembly Required" only seals the deal. Though the electronics have a retro, analogue feel to them, the jauntiness of the melodies and the crisp rhythms are enough to keep things humming along. The title track delves into the nostalgia, and Skanfrom's slower mix of "Frozen Food" lends itself to a more thoughtful moment, as does the languid "Replacement Value $2.00." "That Will Be 49¢" is as sweet and wobbly as "Not For Sale" is short-but-shiny. Lowfish ends the album on a slightly moodier and darker remix of "A Panel Of Experts." A shining city on a hill!

This album is a sublime collection of instrumental, electronic pop music. There are standout tracks, but every track is effortlessly pleasing and memorable. Solvent's work is so good he manages to transcend and surpass his influences. For those who enjoy catchy, inventive melodies and the old school sounds of analog synths, this is a must hear.
