Moderat started as a collaboration on Modeselektor's album HAPPY BIRTHDAY, but on their eponymous debut, they expand on that promise, as "A New Error" hums with Apparat's attention to melody and Modeselektor's talent with electro beats. The emotion starts to emerge as Apparat sings his way through "Rusty Nails," giving a counter to the blocky beats before "Seamonkey" brings in a more aggressive stance. Paul St. Hilaire from their first collaboration on "Let Your Love In" returns for "Slow Match," a darker, lower track, though not without its own riddim. A dirty acid electro wiggles onto "Sick With It," while a rock attitude swaggers onto "Porc#1" before it goes post-rock (and then acid!) with "Porc#2." A more gradual build is on tap on "Les Grandes Marches," but with "Mr. 22" they blend their weapons together to form a super-weapon, a dub-techno flavored track before bringing back the emotive vocals on "Out of Sight." Busdriver lends some tedious braggadocio to "BeatsWaySick," but Shackleton redeems things with his slow and low mix of "Rusty Nails." This album over all is a perfect example of great minds thinking alike.

Terrible pressing, stunning album. As others have mentioned, its time for a repress, this time done right. Cant believe this could be its vinyl legacy to the future.

A 3x12" reissue of this album would be fantastic. Please?

It's a long record; that's why it's quiet. Turn it up.

This album is beautiful to me. It moved me to the point of goose bumps. I purchased both the CD with DVD and the vinyl.

For me this is an amazing lp from start to finish, is filled with powerful sounds that wash of emotions, exquisite work mastering, mixing (Hansa) and production, a perfect blend of styles result of the union of three great the Berlin scene, Modeselektor and Apparat.,

..... I want to hear more!! .........

How can one name an mp3-Album with bonus-tracks "Deluxe Edition"?

Quality Music all around and this album is pretty diverse, too.
I just can't believe they pressed this on one vinyl only.
