      "Hermelin" & "Lost" are both edited down for this release, original durations are 8:18 & 9:25 respectively. Full "Lost" is availbale on "Western Store" compilation. Mastering of tracks 1-10 is identical to that of the original 2005 CD release.

              What a gloriously delicious record. Deep beats and techy wonky noises that blip, drip, and glitch along and that are interlaced between with odd little songs about jellyfish and other peculiar tidbits. The closing track 'Pillowtalk' is a delightful comedown track just slightly reminescent of 'Beau Mot Plage' in its use of keyboard technique. A gem of an album from a unique artist.

                Another highly original release from Isolée. Rajko Müller gives us a huge demonstration of how to use strings, guitars, beats and other electronic stuff in an imaginative and propulsive way. Just Awesome!

                  Releasing a landmark LP and then disappearing for 5 years before bringing out a new one usually spells disaster for most artists. The weight of expectation usually buries good LPs because essentially they're not quite up to the first one. "Rest" was a great LP, and the subsequent massive hit "Beau Mot Plage" redefined the new breed of European house, giving it an irresistable Balearic edge that only to be fair, Luomo could stand up to.

                  "We are Monster" however is nothing like "Rest" and plaudits should be handed to Mr Muller for not going down a path that many might expect him to. Is "Microhouse" dead now? Instead of glitch and the like, we've got guitars, disco and plenty of other unexpected influences in an album that doesn't grab at first listen, but provides so many little moments of satisfaction that slowly but surely you feel yourself drawn to it. Followers might immediately latch onto the last track "Pillowtrack", full of sinewy sequenced tropes that are his trademark, and also to the Clone-esque stomp of "My Hi-Matic" but in general this is a different angle from Mr Muller and we're richer for hearing it.
