As if I didn't say enough about how far out ahead of their time Yello (or shall I say YELLo) was, I will reiterate that statement again after intensively scrutinizing this album! They were way out FAR OUT ahead of their time! The production tricks and techniques are what you might expect of a mid 1990's Drum-N-Bass track, albeit not quite as frantic. And their pre-sellout "techno" approach makes use of some of the other drum machines on the market at the time - as I personally tired of hearing the same old 808-909 combos of the mid-'90's. And last but definitely NOT least, they were musicians creating music in a musical way, not DJ's creating "traxx" which 99% of the time consisted of nothing more than one pattern (which they heard in their head from existing "good" techno tracks) stretched out over thirteen minutes executed very minimally. These are "songs" with structure and thus - changes! Indeed, music was still exciting in 1983 (or '82? - Looks like Elektra released it later after seeing it was commercially viable and therefore marketable). Now I'm totally intrigued - I want to hear more of this band called YELLo... Excellent! FIVE STARS!
