      WTF...some c**t asking 400 Euros for this!!! Do you f**khead sellers understand anything other than greed. This music was made to push back against your exact BS, not to be listened to by some J Paul Getty, Napoleonic era brandy sipping muppet sitting in his leather backed armchair! I hope you all contract really long lingering illnesses..c**nts! That being said, if you can get this at a reasonable price...do! It's a raw, dirty slice of filthy faceless techno b*llocks, nice quality pressing and packaging. It's one of those records you take as your run out of your burning house.

        There are some very similar arrangements to Whatever Happened To Peace (in particular) on Jeff Mills' prior project, The Final Cut's debut album, Deep Into the Cut.

          I don't think we can expect someone like Pete Tong (a fluffy DJ at best) to play UR material or understand it, especially when this & other material from these guys was first coming out.

            referencing X-101 (LP) MKTMLP2

            Ahead of its time.

              No doubt about it, the X-101 album is as ahead of its time as they used to come. Not only does it kick off with the evergreen Sonic Destroyer, which is nothing short of a techno equivalent of a classic Star Trek episode, but from there it only moves towards an unprecedented clash between soul and hardness, best exemplified on Rave New World and my favorite track on the album, Whatever Happen to Peace, both of which are very forceful and intense while being graced with very soothing and warm melodies, thus staying in touch with both, the emotional and the driving aspect of techno music.
              G-Force has some amazing spaced out sounds throughout, while The Final Hour just rolls on and on with an amzing bass line. Same goes with the afore mentioned Whatever Happen to Peace; just play it with the bass up and feel the earth below you shake as the machine gun bass line alters your whole perception of techno music. And the album closes with Mindpower, a wicked tune loaded with strange and sinister noises and occasional outbursts of acid stabs.
              Simple to some, yet when placed within its historical context, the praise starts. There was nothing this hard floating around the maeket when UR dropped this gem.
              If you are a fan of Detroit techno, or are just plain interested in the development of harder, more extreme and daring aspects of the genre - look no furhter. X-101 is THE answer!

                This is truly the techno soul in action, one of those few moments when you could feel the future in action. I would add that "Rave New World" got me crying since its release : hypnotic, soulfull and sad, it is the perfect soundtrack for the final scenes of Blade Runner : "I've seen so many things..." as said Roy Batty.

                  First Tresor release. "The Final Hour" is a dark, sophisticated, and suprisingly simple classic. Note that this was re-released by Mute as "Sonic Destroyer" but with this EP's tracklist.

                    This licenced album from Underground Resistance was the beginning of the axis "Detroit - Berlin". I remember...
