A classic piece, sounding like no other. The programming is impeccable; every sound bit is exactly where it's supposed to be, like in a flawless mechanism of an unknown purpose, but of great beauty. You can just sit and "watch" it all day long.

I listen to this album today now at 12:03am 25th July 2014 for the first time. I am on track 8. I cannot comprehend this music's brilliance. I cannot comprehend this album was made nearly 20 years ago and I am thankful that I only hear this now. as I fear if I may have listened to this in 1995 it would have altered the course of my life in ways I cannot comprehend. This album has altered my life in ways I cannot comprehend and I am still to complete my first listening. it is inevitable there will be 100s more times.

This album is without any doubt one of the greatest electronic piece in music histoy. Pure electronic bass and drum with floating sounds that come from any side around you. No one in the past before and after this has never reached the same overall result. Complicated and at the same time simple compositions with immense sense of dynamism and creativity. The track SKANK is on the middle position not for a case, but because is the apotheosis, the peak, the manifesto not only of a group but also for a generation of electronic artists that drew inspiration drew technical and creative inspiration from it. Freefloater is A truly masterpiece.

Considering this album was released in 1995, it still sounds remarkable. The whole album contains Intricate rhythms and evolving melodies throughout. There is a sonic quality that has stood the test of time well. I can think of many records from this era that have dated far more than this one has.
Enjoy!

Having listening to this record surely over a hundred times for the last five-or-so years, I still get shocked in awe. The quirky melodies and needle-point rhythm patterns they deploy throughout this "tech-ambient" (dubby at times) journey is indescribable. I'm glad I have gotten my hands on a copy of this!

I also think it has to be noted that this was made in 1995 - some material probably even earlier. This is some high-quality engineering, folks! Think Shulman and Bluetech, 12 years ago - simply amazing.

Bobby and his fellow freethinkers truly stand by their guise of choice - this is The Higher Intelligence Agency at their best.
