His best album under any alias!

After hearing 'Souls At Zero', (the only experience I'd ever had of ZN) and wondering whether it was the best or the worst track I'd heard all year, I'll never be quite sure why I then went and bought the album.

But flip me, I'm glad I did - anyone who knows ZN/John Starlight's output will know what I mean when I say he has his own, distinct home-made broken-equipment-in-a-basement sound - bad vocoders, rubbish sampling, wonky melodies, $10 drum machine beats..... its chaotic and badly made - this sounds like he made it in his sleep.

But it works. Don't know how, it just does.

With his already visionary Leichenschmaus album, Splank! from Zombie Nation made it clear : he was here to change the patterns of electronic music. With Absorber, the evidence of a total success strikes beautifully. From the integration of an electric guitar solo to a chillout song (Automatic Gestalt) to the sexy gimmicks added to The Cut, every song is a weird discovery, something that points out to examplariness. A perfect record, full of subtilities, looking into the future but still remembering the past.
