      Tight Italo disco, decades ahead of it's time, timeless, superb production, I like the vocoder, must have, see also their second album.

          standout for me... is mojave. year is 1983. i wonder where they got their influence from the years before that. i now have a reference for the currently nicely produced downtempo tracks. And the current nonline repress is quite good..

            Hi...Can anyone tell how the lp version of NonLine compares to the 12"..Is the track the same and how is the sound quality compared to the 12"?

              I'll skip one or two tracks here - but overall, this long play album is incredible
              Along with Nemesy LP, they are the best you can find in the Italo World.

              Seven points for the work of art!

                Have to disagree with comments below from hysteric. Yes, a totally fantastic record with awesome, timeless production, but, apart from the vocoder, it's really spoiled for me by the vocals, especially on 'Runaway'. Had to do me own instrumental edits I'm afraid!

                  Some nice proto-chicago-house tunes here, definitely avangtarde, by the times. I expecially love the Bonus Single "Joke", slowed down a bit is fantastic, as heard in my beloved Giganti Discotheque cassette from '83. Rare gem, reissued here in a GZ pressing that looks shiny. The sound is acceptable, there are some artifacts from noise-crackle removal, but bargain if you get one copy for less than 10€. I also have a skip in the middle of A2 without any sign of damage, anyone else?

                    Fantastic first album by IMS, every track on here can played in a modern club or bar environment.
                    Emotive and exotic synth composition and programming throughout creating strong feelings, with superb vocals on "Runaway" and "Bubble Rap" (the latter is perhaps my favourite track on the record).
                    Not just a great italo-disco album, but really timeless electronic music.
