Those familiar with Steve Stoll's output know what to except here: linear, pretty straight forward and not overly complex techno, which doesn't even pretend to be anything but true to the form electronic music. Makes me think of Marco Carola's "The 1000th collection", where most tracks packed a real punch due to powerful and driving layers, while a few numbers had that toned down, minimal feel. Well, "The blunted boy wonder" does not deviate that much from that formula.
Tracks, fairly simple in structure and scarse in progression, go on for approximately five to six minutes and do just what they're supposed to: make you move.
My personal favorite is Model T, which is an almost 7 minute long sledgehammer, with a pounding kick and a huge bass line, none of which want to end. Think of Carola's Compressed or Poison, which are both to be found on the aforementioned album.
Nothing ground breaking for the average techno listener, a worthwile addition to your Steve Stoll collection if you're a fan of the man's work.
