I can only assume those rating this highly and suggesting this is from a time where techno was at its peak were not around in the early/mid 90's when there was actually some diversity and originality about techno, rather than this utterly boring, loopy late 90's formulaic nothingness. What was the point of these tracks? Get a loop going, filter it now and again, raise the hats occasionally, and that's enough, is it? Then create another 3 almost identical tracks and you've got an E.P. to sell. So fucking lazy, man. From when 'real' techno was on the wane, and most of the stuff being released was just dull, unoriginal, and instantly forgettable looped-up rubbish. The late 90's were broadly a really sad and poor time for techno. If you were on a stack of pills in The End, you'd have loved this at the time. That's about the best that can be said of it. Bang average.

Straightforward, loopy, somewhat hard, mechanical techno in the late-'90s style you'd expect from these masters of the Swedish scene. The A-side (Tortured logo label) sounds somewhat unfinished and is just kind of a warm-up for the B-side, which is the reason I bought this record. Both tracks on side B are well worth the price and have a relatively sophisticated yet relentless sound, but it's the Beyer & Mull collaboration (B1) that stands out. It could've just as easily come out on Kanzleramt. Apparently this is an easy & cheap record to find, so pick one up if you like this style of techno.
