Comment: And in 2012 it sounds as fresh as ever! A techno-milestone, haha. In fact more electro than techno, it's still a listening pleasure that keeps your feet tapping. 10 of the 12 tracks emerge as tremendous grooves, 2 of 12 remind you of oldschool dumpstyle. And - how many records do you have that play inside-out? nice gimmick.

This is one hell of an album ! As far as hard Techno goes it's hard to find much better. Packed full of dark menacing grooves, this is not for cheeseheadz !

The first time I heard "Bad Boy" was on Jeff Mills' "Liquid Rooms" CD and it quite literally blew me away. One of the most floor destroying techno tunes ever made. It's hard to pick out other highlights as it's such a great LP overall. The Electro tracks are also incredible. As good as, if not better than anything Drexciya have done.

This album makes for good listening at home because as the previous reviewer said these grooves are aimed more for the mind and soul. However anyone who's heard these monsters on a loud system will tell you - The Advent Rock !

This was The Advent's pinnacle release in my opinion as nothing I've heard from them since matches this.
Awesome !!!

I have never been heard a better work from those two talented technoproducers like this album! Most of the tracks on it are more experience for your ear and your soul than beeing funky dance tracks only. This is a reference for their great work on Internal. Tell me the reason why this cool imprint is closed now?
