still waiting for draghixia, hydroxy and satyricon to get re-cut and reissued the way they deserve. secret life and sitting on clouds make this repress a valueable possesion, but i'd still insist on publishing the missing tracks (if possible).

The whole album is great, don't get me wrong, but "Satyricon" is the bottom line for 1990 Deep House. I was suprised to learn this track is from the Netherlands and not from Detroit, when I found out.

Overrated album however, the title track "Secret Life Of Machines" is very beautiful melancholic techno. "Hydroxy" and "Sitting On Clouds" are my other two picks, not nearly as good as the title track, but better than most of the remaining track of the tracks which aren't that impressive. Based on one review here at Discogs, people apparently rave a lot about track 11 "Astronotes" Most of the track didn't get my attention, although it gets better at the end. "Secret Life Of Machines" is a MUST for any techno listener / collector. "Hydroxy" and "Sitting On Clouds" are enjoyable and respectably good. If only the title track was longer (It is unfortunately somewhat short) and managed to take advantage of the longer duration without adding any irrelevant dragging. 6/5 for me ;)

Still a great release in 2015, I picked up the repress pretty cheap it is missing Satyricon as many have mentioned before but I think even without this track it stands the test of time and still sounds current.

I was super stoked to see that this record was getting repressed. I was super disappointed to see that this record was getting rearranged and hacked up. Guess I will just keep holding out for finding an original pressing somewhere.

This one really confuses me. I understand why they'd want to put less time on each side of the vinyl. I bitch all the time about labels trying to squeeze too much time on each side. But leave off Satyricon!?! And add Thera instead? Why? Go buy the Thera 2x12" LP if you need that track. Decisions like this make no sense to me. Is 100% Pure planning on reissuing Satyricon independently of this release? That'd be fine with me. I was SUPER looking forward to this reissue, but I'm disappointed this didn't include Satyricon.

Therefore, I'm still looking for a copy of the original pressing if anyone would like to entertain trades.
Check my inventory.

Why were two (important) tracks left off this remastered version?

So many great tracks. Very zeitgeist. 'Hydroxy' at -8.
