This is classic techno from B12 and although things have moved on a lot in the electronic music world it still holds its own and is a pleasure to listen to in all its remastered glory. It is important to re-release this music since many people like myself didnt have a chance at buying the original records at the time so for that I am extremely grateful to the producers. Having said that I find it difficult to justify why they decided to print the back catalog over seven volumes and make each disk around 30 minutes (some much less!). This to me is pointless and the only benefit that can be derived from this is to draw out the releases as much as possible and milking what they can from the listener. Im hoping the rest of the collection proves me wrong.
