      The first album By Laurent Garnier turn out to be one of his few decent releases. its not exactly an outstanding album but is surely enjoyable. "Rex attitude" is the only track i don´t like, very agressive and repetitive...while "Raw cut" turns out to be my favourite music, as the music progresses a shadowy melody gets stronger making the last minute of this music lovely.

        Laurent Garnier's first album on his own F Communications, Shot in the Dark, is chock full of straight-up techno. Too bad it doesn't start well. "Shapes Under Water" is pointlessly aggressive and doesn't leave any impression. "Astral Dreams" is even worse due to its repetitiveness and predictability, cheaply turning up the harsh synth slowly. Unfortunately, there are more of such tracks, like "Rex Attitude". Garnier succeeds nevertheless on the driving "Bouncing Metal" and "Raw Cut", twisting the tracks somewhat midway to keep them interesting. However, "The Force" combines a decent groove with some very deceptive and irritating vocal samples, while the rough "Geometric World" touches on the boundary of my definition of being music. Much better is the title-impliying "Harmonic Groove", which has a nice breakdown at the four minute mark. "Track for Mike" goes for dissonant electronics, not being that interesting. One of the best tracks is "Rising Spirit". An explicitly ambient track with a mellow beat, building up the synths on the background to show their grace and fading them out towards the end. "022" is very good too, an elegant deep house track that keeps its neat melody going, as if you are floating in the air. While Garnier delivers eleven tracks, only half of them are worthwhile.

          This album is the picture of Laurent's residency at the Rex Club between 92 to 94 called Wake Up (the aim was to wake the parisian up).
          I remember him always playing Rex Attitude or Bouncing metal back in the days.
          Techno album but with his french flair, Laurent gave us a solid album dedicated to people who helped him and to all the dancers.

          Merci pour les souvenirs :)

            A very good title indeed from a time when Laurent Garnier was producing and playing hard Techno.
            "Geometric World' and 'The Power' are choice cuts of '94 Techno.

            Written inside the gatefold:

            "This record is dedicatedto:
            The two Eric's in my life (Morand & Napora) and to my loving Della.
            'Geometric World especially for Manu LeMalin. And thanks for all the people who have.
            Supported me. You know who you are. Thanks & Respect"
