You think that with an artist with the name of The Railway Raver would be full of nostalgia for the good ol' days of raves, but The Railway Raver seem much more invested in Detroit than warehouses with his album DROP ACID NOT BOMBS. He opts for the mellower side of techno, with "Mine Storm" hitting the beats, yet still keeping itself on an even keel, and "My Lacoste (577 N Mix)" is surprisingly lush and melodic. "Mantons' Run (On The Run)" does the futuristic mystery well, and "The Elizabethan Pornograph Smugglers" has a smooth, sensuous groove to it. Warmth fills up "To Be A Man Like Ingersol" and "Land Of Conclusion." Electro bloops its way onto "The Eyes Of Garfield (Part II)," and "Keith's Trumpets" slinks its way into some summery house before exploding into a minor key blitzer. "Acid For The 90's" closes the album with a quicker BPM, though staying within the same sedate vibe. A surprising album, and all the more strong for it.
