Sven (and Ralf) made some beautiful music and quite often the cover artwork did a dis-service. I remember avoiding this album back in the day mainly because of the cover which is swallow I know but seriously this and a few others around the same time were awful. However having picked this up randomly recently I regret not listening to it first before passing judgement back in 94. There are some great ambient tracks and the "trance" tracks actually haven't dated as badly as most from the same time. Glad I gave it a chance in the end.

This is an interesting album considering that it was produced in 1994, but far from being one of the best productions of Sven väth, probably because he was still developing his artistic talents... still this is a enjoyable album, 3 stars is all i can give, some of the musics are too extended for its content, making some of the musics repetitive. most of the melodies are not outstanding, its seems some of them never reaches the climax, thus being only progressive. So i guess this album works well as background while the listener is busy with something else.

Wow! Big Wow wow!
Sven belongs to rare group of very talented producers / djs and I will be holding special place in my heart for them.
Superb album.\Highly recommended.
Ambient mixture with spot on dance track The Beaty and the beast which was one of the best dance trax in 1994 era (the best era anyway)
If you are looking for some other stuff from same era do look at accident in paradise EP too.
There are some useful info/videos on youtube to get the real touch of feelings you could get...

It would be nice to travel in time :
Enjoy!

This is excellent trance music on the dance side. Although I believe Accident in Paradise, his debut album, was a better release, tracks like Beauty and the Beast make this release a memorable one. With energetic dark and technoish rhythms morphed into an atmospheric track, this kind of music can drive a dancefloor for hours at a time. Trance's era may be well over, but if you want to take a look back in time at one of the greatest artists in edm doing what he does best - make good music - then look no further than "The Robot And The Ballet-Dancer".

A milestone in electronic music history. Sven Väth together with Ralf Hildenbeutel shows with this album ones more her musical talent and visions of the future of this sound! Next to 'An Accident In Paradise' reflects this album Sven's influence from his trip to Goa (India), especially in 'Harlequin's Meditation'! For me the best album from Sven Väth and one of the best in the trance/ambient genre! i recommend everyone to listen 'The Harlequin - The Robot And The Ballet-Dancer' over headphones!

This record was slaughtered when it was released, not because of the music, but because of the concept behind it. If Sven had put the record out in a more lowkey sleeve, I'm sure this would have been hailed as one of the defining releases of the year 1994. It's a marked improvement over his previous effort, "An Accident In Paradise". Tracks like "Harlequin - The Beauty And The Beast" and the Ballet-Fusion suite must rate among the best ever tunes released in the trance genre.

I agree that the sleeve artwork and the concept behind the album is bad taste, but I find it sad that a record is judged only by it's cover as the music it features is top notch.

Rich with texture and diversity like many of Sven Vaths albums although this for me is his best work. I wouldnt go as far to say this album is trance because it defies many bounderies which shows how forward thinking and innovative he was at the time, However I would go as far to say this as an album is one of those beautiful timeless classics.

Once upon a time this Sven Väth did some really awesome music. It was innovative, experimental but still very emotional. Both his trance-and ambient-songs on both "An accident in paradise" and "the harlequin - the robot and the ballet-dancer" are nothing but awesome. I haven't heard anything like it, at least not from that time!
Sven Väth was a pioneer for the whole trance-scene, and the ambient-scene. To bad the stardom got him "mad". =/

Anyway, the climaxes of "Harlequin's meditation", "Ballet-fusion" and "Ballet-dancer" are three of the best moments ever in trance/ambient-history!

Get this!
