Great ambient music of the classic years that Ambient electronic music started to get the recognition it now deserves. A great re-press

Futuristic sounding music with keyboards that sound like a symphony and techno beats added to it. My favorite tracks are "Hall of Mirrors", "Metropolis", "Telefone 529" and "Satori". A

I know it says it on the notes. But I'm gonna say it anyway. The track list on the back of the CD is partially incorrect. Track 9 is "Telefone 529". Track 10 is "Drift" (missing on the back cover). Track 11 is "Debris". Track 12 is "Satori". And Track 13 is "Static Emotion".

Aural science fiction made by two guys that loved the sounds of American artists like Larry Heard (the track "Mondrin" is a tribute) and Derrick May. Smooth synths spiraling, drifting, soaring and stretching with dubby bass lines that harken to the Chicago house of Alleviated, Trax and Gherkin Records sound. The magic ingredient? The Roland JD-800 digital synthesizer.

Truly one of the best non-Detroit "Detroit" techno albums out there.

Unreal record. Your collection won't be complete without a copy of this!

Can someone tell me if this issue is supposed to have a poster in it like electro-soma II? Thanks

Nice sounding pressing. I have a regular black version. Why oh why create a pressing like this and ship in crappy scratchy paper sleeves though????
